Attendance: We love your children, and we want them to be in school as much as possible but only if they are healthy! If your child is not feeling well, has a headache, upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, fever (99.4), please keep them home. They must remain home 72 hours symptom free. Please call the school to let us know that your child will be absent. If your child is a bus rider, please call the bus barn, 785-448-6155, to let them know.
Meals: Breakfast and lunch will be served to all children free of charge, for the remainder of this school year, until further notice.
Classroom/school visits: At this time, due to COVID, we are not having any visitors come into the school. We apologize for this, but our goal is to keep everyone healthy and to keep our school open.
Communication with teachers: Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher anytime you have a concern. You can email them anytime, or you can call the school, 785-489-2511, and we will get the message to them. They will return your call as soon as possible.
Communication with principal: Please feel free to contact Mrs. Alford anytime! She does have two schools, but Carley always knows where she is. If you call and she is not at Westphalia, Carley will give you the Greeley number.
Remember...It takes a village to raise a child! We all belong to the same village! Thank you for your support!
USD #365 INCLEMENT WEATHER
In most cases, the decision USD #365 will be faced with will be to either close school for a day or decide that conditions allow for school to be in session. However, occasionally the district may choose to delay the start of the school day by two hours.
USD #365 has a new option for inclement weather days: two-hour delayed start. The two-hour delayed start may be used when temporary adverse weather conditions exist, including extreme wind-chill conditions or unfavorable road conditions. Two-hour delayed starts maximize instructional time with students rather than closing for the entire day.
In the event of a two-hour delayed start, all school start times will be delayed by two hours. All morning bus pick-up times will also be delayed by two hours. Schools will end their day at the regular time and after-school bus routes will operate on their normal schedule.
