Facilities Needs & Solutions for Quality Education 
As part of our commitment to continue providing high-quality education, we have been studying our facilities needs. Our school is in need of critical repairs that extend beyond our everyday maintenance. Thank you to everyone who has weighed in with feedback over the past year.
  • Facilities Master Plan (FMP).  Thank you to all stakeholders who participated in our FMP meetings. We plan to finalize the FMP later this year. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have further feedback or would like to weigh in. DRAFT — Facilities Master Plan

Illness Protocol ... From School Nurse Abbe
This is a reminder about illness and when students should be kept home. While some students begin to first show symptoms of being ill at school, there are some students who are coming to school with significant symptoms of illness that should be at home.

Our office team will notify the teachers.

No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus at ANYTIME — including after-school sports teams/clubs using the WES field, weekends and summer break. This is a school policy and large signs are posted at the entrances to campus. 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.
