Back to School Night
Mark your calendars for our Back to School Night/ Open House on Monday, August 14th from 3-8pm. Students can receive tours, club information, find lockers, discover busing schedules, and learn general information on this evening. Teachers will be available in their classrooms, so parents and students can discuss classroom expectations. If you still need to pay for student fees, the finance office will also be open. Please note: We will not be holding Parent/Teacher Conference in September, so you will not want to miss this opportunity to attend Back to School Night.

Skyward Updates & Information
It is required that parents go into Skyward and update all information for every student with whom they have guardianship. Click below for all the tips and tutorials on how to do this!
School Nurse – Natalie Anderson [email protected]
- Immunizations – All students must have their immunizations cleared before the first day of school. Please bring a copy of the record to the school or email our School Nurse if you have any questions.
- Medical Needs – If your student requires medication &/or any medical needs while at school, this requires an Individualized Health Plan signed by parents and doctors. Please contact our School Nurse with any questions.
- Sick Day Policy – If your student has any symptoms, KEEP THEM HOME. If you are called to pick them up, do this as quickly as possible to avoid exposure to other students/staff in the area.
- PLEASE update your contact information and add emergency contacts to your students record so they can be picked up as soon as possible.
Westlake will have one lunch each day. For specific times, see the BELL SCHEDULE. The cost for lunch this year is $2.25, breakfast is $1.25. Payments for lunches can be made on LINQ Connect, or you can bring payment with you on Back to School Night. Payments cannot be taken during lunchtime but can be taken before school.

Lockers will not automatically be assigned. If your student would like to rent a locker, he/she will need to pay the locker rental fee of $2, fill out the Google locker request form, as well as pay all required student fees. Although students have the ability to choose the hallway they prefer, lockers will only be given upon availability. Lockers should only be used to store items for the day. All personal items should be taken home nightly. Your locker number and combination can be located under Student Info, in Skyward. Your locker will be assigned by August 12. Each locker will only have one student—it will not be shared. For questions regarding lockers, please contact the main office.
