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.
2020 is here! We are back from our break, and we are starting our 3rd Quarter, 2nd Semester. The school year is half over! Time flies!
As we begin the second half of this school year, please remember that getting enough sleep and eating properly are very important things to our bodies – young and old. The weather changes quickly, the days will start getting longer, and we tend to get run down. This is a hard time of year!
We had a wonderful 1st Semester! I am SO proud of our Westphalia Wolverines! Let’s try to stay healthy, stay strong, and work hard, so we can have an amazing finish to our year.
I hope 2020 brings you all, much good health and happiness!
Mrs. Alford – Principal
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.
I hope everyone had a good break and are as happy as I am to be back in school! January and February are busy months, filled with fun and exciting events.
