Congratulations & Final Box Tops Reminder
Congratulations to Mr. Magliocca's class for collecting the most Box Tops in the May/June contest! They collected 344 Box Tops, closely followed by Ms. Hughes, Ms. Estep's and Ms. Forvour's classes. All four classes will receive an icy treat. Congratulations to all the winners and remember to keep saving box tops over the summer! 

We want to thank Ms. Salgado for all her hard work with collecting and coordinating the Box Tops throughout the year to earn money for our students! We are also thankful for Ms. Larsen who has volunteered to take on this responsibility next school year! 
Cafeteria Balances Due
The cafeteria is attempting to collect negative balances, for the lunch/breakfast accounts. Just to be clear, if the money is not paid, by 6-18-2015, the balance will carry over to next year. If you are in the process, of applying for free or reduced priced meals, you are still responsible, for any money owed. The negative balance will carry over to middle school, as well as any school in PWC.   The cafeteria is not set up to take payments during the Summer. Even if your child is attending the Summer Sacc program. Call Melissa Swink, if you have questions @ 703-670-9463.

Tdap Shot Required of Rising 6th Graders
All students entering 6th grade in September, 2015, are required to have a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) booster.  Your child cannot start school in September without record of this immunization on file.  It is important to prepare for the Tdap vaccine now.  Documentation from the doctor or Health Department should be presented to the school nurse as soon after your child has received their immunization.  Make your appointment now to help your child be prepared for middle school!

 

 


 

 
     
Change in Walker Dismissal Procedure
Starting on Monday, January 12, 2015, a new dismissal procedure and time will begin for all of our students who walk home from school each day. Due to concerns for the safety of all our Westridge students and families, walkers will now be dismissed at 4:00 p.m. from door 10. Several factors including the high volume of cars parked along Knightsbridge Drive, cars parked in the designated No Parking area, U-Turns, and the high volume of vehicles have made the conditions hazardous for our families who walk.

By dismissing the walker students at 4:00 p.m., it is my hope that the volume of vehicles will be significantly less, and therefore provide a safer environment for our families who walk home. I have also contacted the Prince William County Police and have asked that the area be patrolled during our dismissal time, again to ensure the safety of our families.

Please remember that the policy of Westridge is that students who are car riders are picked up inside the school parking lot in the designated areas. I realize that at times this line may move slowly, but our procedures are put in place to ensure the safety of all our families.

Traffic Concerns on Knightsbridge Drive
To our Westridge Families:

Please remember to drive safely and watch out for our children during pick up and drop off. Please remember that all car riders should be picked up in the school parking lot and not on Knightsbridge Drive. The exit at door 10 is intended for walkers only. 

Thank you for ensuring the safety of all our children
Cafeteria Menu
Our cafeteria has a variety of menu options for our students each day. New this year, please see the Prince William County Schools calendar that came home on the first day of school. Behind each month is that month's menu. You can also view the menu online under our Cafeteria section to the left.
