PRESS CONFERENCE ON FLOOD PREPAREDNESS HELD AT WESTMORE OAKS RESCHEDULED TO TUESDAY!

Greetings Parents, Staff and Students!  Our school has been picked by the Mayor of West Sacramento, Christopher Calbaldon, as the site for the press conference for the kickoff of the California Flood Preparedness Week!  Many of our students participated in the Flood Preparedness Contest last school year and our mayor was so impressed by our student entries that he decided to kick off the Flood Preparedness Campaign by holding his press conference at our school!  The conference will be on Tuesday, October 21st in the school library at 10:00 a.m.  Some students have been chosen to attend the conference and parents are also welcome to attend.  There will be many local media stations here covering the event.  It is quite an honor. Follow  Mrs. Smith on twitter for up to date information!

FUN FRIDAY VOLLEYBALL GAME STUDENTS VERSUS STAFF!

Designated Drop Off and Pick Up Area on Campus!

Designated Drop Off and Pick Up Area on Campus!

 

Parents and Guardians,

In accordance with the new Washington Teacher Association contract language for the 2014-2015 school year, each school site in the Washington Unified School District must establish a designated parent/guardian wait area.  This contract language was developed in order to help insure the safety of students, staff and parents, and is in no way meant to deter parent involvement or dissuade parents from being a part of our school culture.  In order to be compliant with the new contract language, beginning October 13, 2014, Westmore Oaks will be implementing new drop off and pick up procedures during school hours from 7:00 a.m. until 2:45 p.m.

Our new drop off-pick up procedures are as follows:

 

All parents and students must enter through the gate located between the Administration Building and the Cafeteria or the gate by the parking lot and bicycle racks.  After entering the campus, parents may wait with their children in the morning at the picnic tables which are located outside the cafeteria.  When the bell rings at 7:55 a.m., the children can walk without parents to the playground to line up.  Parents and Guardians will not be able to wait on the playground or walk down the halls to the classrooms.  In the afternoon, parents are to wait at the picnic tables until students are dismissed from school. 

 

Parents and guardians who need to enter campus for other reasons or need to stay for a longer period of time during the stated school hours, mush continue to sign in at the office and get a visitor's badge.

Thanks you for helping us in our efforts to keep your child and the Westmore Oaks staff as safe as possible. 

 

Sincerely, Mrs. Smith, Principal
