District Shares Fall Schedule And Pandemic Plan

Posted June 29, 2020

The following is a message from Dr. Mike Lucas, Superintendent of Westside Community Schools.

Thank you to all who attended our Community Forum last Thursday, whether in person or by joining us online. As we shared, we continue to spend a lot of time on our pandemic plan as we prepare for August. We know that providing a safe learning and working environment is always a top priority. As we’ve learned these past few months, many things can change in the coming weeks but as of now, we feel it is important to share the following news with you.

We understand that the last few months have been extremely challenging for many of our students, their families, and our staff.  The upcoming year will also be full of unknowns and obstacles to overcome. We need to support each other. We need to stay home when we don’t feel well, wash our hands often, wear masks where/when appropriate, and take care of ourselves. TOGETHER, we can make 2020-21 a wonderful experience for our students. TOGETHER, we can overcome the challenges headed our way. TOGETHER, we are better.

CLICK HERE for our 2020-21 SCHOOL CALENDAR.  Below are some selected school calendar highlights for your planning purposes.

We will also be sending home color, printed calendars at no charge for every student and staff member in our district at the start of the school year. However, as we continue to face so many unknowns as these calendars go to print, most dates have been left blank, allowing for you to fill in events important to you once they are determined. We hope our families enjoy the photos and resources, and utilize our online calendars we update frequently with changes.

I am thankful and proud to be part of the Westside community with each of you.  WE will get off to a great start in August.  WE will adjust and adapt to whatever comes at us next.  WE will persevere with grit, pride, and a sense of teamwork.  WE are Westside!
