Westview Elementary

Westview Families,

 It is hard to believe that we are coming up on the half-way point of the year. It has been an amazing year so far and yet we have so many more great things to come. We are continuing to ensure that all of our students can and will achieve to the highest standards.

As the year goes on, you need to continue to have the conversation with your student everyday on “what they learned at school”. This will keep you updated on what is happening in their classroom, but also reinforce what they are learning during the school day. As always, stay in contact with your child’s teacher, check your students back pack daily, and provide as many learning activities outside of the school day. This would include reading for 20 minutes a day and doing flash cards each night.

In the upcoming months we will have many events such as skate nights, the chocolate sale, and some field trips. Please make sure if you get involved in the school. You can do this by attending PTO meetings or contacting the front office.

Winter Break will be from December 19th to January 4th. Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or Festivus, please remember it’s not about the gifts you get or give it’s about the family and friends you have around you. Take time to enjoy your children because they grow up way too fast. I want to wish you the happiest of holidays.

Mr. Jones Principal
Westview Elementary School

A few general reminders about procedural items.

Students need to be in class and ready to begin their daily activities at 7:50. Our dismissal time is 2:40 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We dismiss at 1:40 on Tuesday. We need for all our students to be here daily and on time. Attendance is a priority at Westview. Please schedule all appointments after school hours.  

Please remember to drive safely especially during drop off and pick up times. We have many wonderful kids and we need your support to help keep our school safe. If you are in a hurry and do not have time to wait, I suggest that you do not pull into the circle drive. There are alternative drop-off locations available; these options include dropping off your child at the corner or on one of the side streets. If you need to come into the building to talk with one of us, please park your car in a parking spot.  

When we have a two-hour delay, school will start at 9:50. Breakfast is not served when we are on a two-hour delay. You can access school closings/delays by going to the Richmond Community Schools web site, listening to the radio, or watching television.
