No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus at ANYTIME. This includes after-school sport teams/clubs using the WES fields. This is a school policy and signs are posted throughout 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.
