2022 Updates

Update as of January 21:
WESD basketball games for grades 3-8th are scheduled to resume on Saturday, January 29.
 
*****
 
Update as of January 6: The city of Menlo Park is suspending all basketball games through January 29, 2022.  After consulting with participating district superintendents, the city of Menlo Park, and health experts, all participating districts will cease all games until January 29, 2022.  This includes ALL basketball teams at WES.  The teams will be able to continue to practice, with all health and safety procedures followed.  We can control our own small teams; however, limiting interaction among different schools is something no district believes is prudent at the moment.
