WELCOME TO WESTPHALIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

HOME OF THE WOLVERINES

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

Westphalia School will strive to develop independent learners using quality personnel in a

positive environment stressing good home/school communications and basic academics

while developing positive attitudes toward learning and acceptance of others.

 

 

Well, we made it to the end of the fourth quarter with “long distance learnng”.  This was not fun, but I am happy to say that I am proud of EVERYONE for working together and making it through!  Thank you teachers, staff, parents, and students!  You are all AMAZING!

We are going to be “wrapping up” the school year – grading packets, doing paperwork, cleaning up the classroms, before we close the building for the summer.  We will mail home the final grade cards.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office.

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.

  • NEW! TWO-HOUR DELAYED START OPTION DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER


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.

 

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR A TWO-HOUR DELAYED START
    • Transportation
      • All morning bus routes run two hours later than normally scheduled. This means if your child is typically picked up at 7 a.m., they will now board the bus at 9 a.m.
      • There will be NO pre-school.
    • Before the school day
      • Breakfast will not be served at schools on two hour delayed start days.
      • No athletic or activity practices before school.
    • School day
      • All field trips leaving before noon are cancelled.
      • All pre-school classes are cancelled.
  • TWO-HOUR DELAYED START FAQS
    • When will you make the announcement?
      • Our goal is to announce delays and closures by 6:00 a.m.  USD #365 will make an attempt to announce two-hour delayed starts or closure the evening before, if possible. Families will receive an “School Messenger Announcement” alerting them to delayed starts and school cancellations.  Information will also be posted on the USD #365 Facebook, and area Television and Radio stations.
    • Why didn’t USD #365 make the same decision as another school district?
      • Weather conditions vary across the area, and one district may be more affected by bad weather than a neighboring district. Conditions can vary even within USD #365, which spans over 400 square miles.
    • Can I choose to keep my child home from school on a delayed start day?
      • If families choose to keep their child home on a delayed start day, they should report the absence in the normal manner
