Principal's Message

Happy New Year Everybody!

I hope everyone enjoyed their winter break and is coming back to school refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to go! Please remember that students are to be on campus between 7:50 & 8am, depending on their grade level, to be sure they get lined up on time. Grades 4, 5, 6 being instruction at 7:55 am, Grades TK & K begin instruction at 8am, and Grades 1, 2, 3 begin at 8:05. So having your child arrive at least 5 minutes early will help your child be on time for all the great things our students learn each day! For your child’s safety, please drop them off in the drop-off zone in the parking lot, or you are welcome to walk them to the playground. Kindergarten parents may wait outside their children’s classrooms or they may be dropped off in the multi-purpose room. They students are expected to sit down, for their safety. Parents please remember that the seating in the lunchroom is for student only.

Speaking of safety, I sincerely want you all to know that the safety of our students and staff has been and will continue to be my first priority. During our first trimester, I was able to hold, with the help of our very competent office & custodial staff, very successful fire drills and an lock-down evacuation drill. We will continue to run monthly safety drills, as I do not believe we can ever practice safety enough. It is our hope that you will support our Westfield Village staff by talking to your children about the importance of these safety drills and the importance of taking them seriously. We will not stop fine-tuning our safety procedures at our site and our safety committee is looking at more angles to help with this continuous effort. You can also help us by ALWAYS checking in at the office before you come on campus. Please do not be offended if a staff member asks for you to return to the office for a Visitor’s Badge. It is for your child’s protection and the protection for all our students. Another way you can help the safety at our campus is to apply to be a volunteer and help with parking lot and playground duty… we need cleared volunteers, desperately!

Thank you everybody! Wishing you all a happy, healthy and safe new year,

Mrs. Giacomini

If absences are not verified within 72 hours, the absence(s) will be considered unexcused. Please note that once our attendance month accounting cycle closes, and absences are not verified, we cannot overwrite or change the absence(s).
