    Rocks Families - we will be sending weekly updates to WWS families to help answer some of your questions.  We realize that there are many unanswered questions such as graduation plans, kindergarten registration, locker clean-out, summer BAC and so many more.  Our WWS team is working hard to provide answers to these questions. This situation is constantly evolving so we pledge to get you answers as promptly as possible.  Please continue to check your email for weekly updates or check our Frequently Asked Questions document on our website.

    Weekly Update

    Kindergarten Registration

    Reminder: Online kindergarten registration is open for the 2020-21 school year.  Any child who lives in Westfield and is five years of age on or before August 1 may enroll in kindergarten. Be sure to check out this link which includes all the documents you need to have ready before starting the online registration process.  Your child’s application cannot be completed without appropriate documentation. You can even use your phone to upload required registration documents!  

    Also, information on kindergarten roundup nights and screenings will be forthcoming.  Schools are working through those details and we will notify families as soon as those details are confirmed.

    Device Information

    If you have a school issued device from our Technology Services Group, please keep that device during the summer months.  We will be retrieving all school issued devices when we return to school for the 2020-21 school year. Reminder, if you need technology support during the remainder of the school year, please call 317.867.8087, Monday - Friday, 9am - 8pm.  There will be no technology support during the summer months. If you need to access wifi, please visit the COVID-19 section of the district website, which includes a map of school building parking lots where you can park and get connected. 

    Submit your questions to Dr. Grate!

    While in-person Coffee Talks with Dr. Grate have been temporarily suspended, answering your questions remains a top priority.  Next week, Dr. Grate will answer your questions in a video message to families. No topic is off limits so please send your questions about WWS related topics to [email protected] and we will try to answer your questions!  

    Vaccines for 2020-21 School Year 

    In regards to the required vaccinations for the 2020-21 school year, the current healthcare response related to the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted healthy child visits and vaccines. We understand that this has and will cause delays in obtaining the school required vaccinations and medical exemptions for the 2020-21 school year.  Please know that we will take this into consideration at the start of the school year. If you submit a religious objection for vaccines, please remember these expire May 22nd and you will need to submit a new form at the start of the school year. We will update you on any further guidance regarding vaccines from the Indiana State Department of Health at the start of the new school year.   Until then, please follow the current guidelines for keeping your family safe and healthy.
