Woodside School Online Directory — click HERE to access
Last fall, Woodside School chose Konstella as our directory and collaboration tool. Konstella enables parents and staff to find other families and staff members, send messages, and organize school and classroom activities, and more — all via a secure, password-protected site. Also, be sure to download the mobile app to access Konstella on the go. 
All WES families enrolled for the 2020-21 school year received an invitation from Konstella to this year's online directory. If you have any questions, feel free to email woodsideschoolpta@gmail.com.
Reopening Info

After submitting our reopening waiver application to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) earlier this month, we are excited to announce that Woodside School has received approval. The waiver approval allows WESD students in grades TK - 5th to return to and stay on campus regardless of the county level color tier we are on. As of Oct. 28th, San Mateo County is on the state's "orange tier" (one tier down from "red) and continues to allow schools within the county to reopen if they can do so safely under the 4 pillars of reopening requirements. In the Reopening Phase 1, students in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten and 6th grade will be welcomed back to campus for in-person teaching on Monday, October 26 and the rest of the grades will return to campus in three additonal phases.


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.
