Cafeteria News from Mrs. Swink
Starting 10 am at Kindergarten Orientation, the parents and their KG students can come thru the lunch line. We will show them how to get their lunch, and their cards etc. It's a sampling for food, just to practice for the students, but they can share w/ their family members!  I will also be set up to apply money to accounts, and answer any questions parents may have. 

Other reminders... Children who qualify for free/reduced breakfast & lunch need to submit a new application every year. If not it will expire Oct.15th
 
Ways to pay for lunch:
myschoolbucks.com (replacing mylunchmoney.com)
 
cash or check only in the cafeteria.
 
any questions or dietary concerns please call :
Melissa Swink @ 703-670-9463
Important Transportation Info for Kindergarten Parents!

Kindergarten students must be accompanied to and from bus stops by a parent, guardian, or other designated individual. Those authorized to take custody of kindergarten students must be listed on the Emergency Data Card maintained at the school and they must have identification available when receiving a student at the bus stop. An older sibling who is at least 12 years old may take custody of a kindergarten student at the bus stop. No change of custody is required if an older sibling is riding the bus with a kindergartner unless the parent has indicated otherwise.

For more information, or to check bus schedules, visit

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.
