No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus at ANY TIME. This is a school policy and signs are posted. We have had a significant problem with dog waste on our fields and campus. It is also important to provide a clean and safe environment for our students, especially those with allergies and animal fears. Please use our beautiful Woodside trails to walk your dogs.

Is Your Child Struggling & Need Support?
Allison Brunner, the School Psychologist, and Mena Lam, the School Counselor created the WESD Counselor's website containing resources for parents, students, and staff including a variety of coping skills, executive functioning strategies, and SEL activities. This website has a virtual "mailbox" to ask a question, share a message, or just contact Ms. Lam or Mrs. Brunner for a check-in. We hope this will provide some additional support with at-home learning. They are here to help your child if he/she is in need of support during this difficult time. Or simply email them directly — Ms. Lam and Mrs. Brunner.
