ATTENDANCE LINE:             803-8290

Attendance Policy

When a student is going to be absent from school for any reason, the parent must call the attendance line (803-8290) and report it by 9:00 a.m. Upon returning to school following an absence or absences, the student shall bring a written statement.  The note must contain dates of absences and reason as well as parent/guardian signature.  These statements determine if the absence is excusable.  Failure to report (verbal or written) a student absent within 24 hours will result in the absence being unexcused.  Students will be considered unexcused for all absences other than those stipulated by administrative guidelines, state, or federal statutes.

Parents of current 5th grade students:

Immunizations of meningitis and Tdap are needed for the start of 6th grade.  Please call the doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have the shots that Indiana requires for middle school.  When you have an appointment date and time, please let the elementary school nurse know so that it can be recorded. Requirements are grade level-based, and not dependent on age of students entering 6th grade.  Call now for the best availability of appointments.

Parents of current high school juniors:

Two doses of meningitis are needed for the start of 12th grade.  Please call your student’s doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have complete shots as designated by the state of Indiana.  Please call the nurse at 803-8304 to advise her about the date and time of appointment.  Students are expected to have the shots at the beginning of the school year.  Call now for best availability of appointments.

Please follow the links to the immunization charts:

Here are today's announcements (12/2): OBSCENE/ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES – Students are prohibited from engaging in any activity that is considered to be obscene or any activity that is prohibited by local, state or federal law. This includes the use of profanity, obscene language and/or inappropriate gestures. Did you know? Doing acts of kindness reduces anxiety. During four weeks, University of British Columbia researchers assigned people with high levels of anxiety to do kind acts for other people at least six times a week. The researchers found that doing nice things for people led to a significant increase in people's positive moods. It also led to an increase in relationship satisfaction and a decrease in social avoidance in socially anxious individuals. West’s Kindness Challenge Continues! Participate in a random act of kindness towards your fellow students and West staff, then pick up an orange kindness card in the cafeteria and fill it out and turn it in for a chance to win a gift card! Drawings will take place every Friday. Help make West the Best and participate in our kindness challenge! Peer Buddy applications are now available in the front office. Applications are due by Dec. 16th and selections will be made during the spring. Turn in completed applications to the front office. If you are a 7th or 8th-grade girl that is interested in playing basketball for West, the call out meeting was on November 22 in Mr. Kern's room. If you were not available to meet on that date please see Mr. Kern for more information. Tryouts for the team will be on December 6th and 8th, here at West. You will have to have a physical on file to participate in tryouts. If you have any questions please see Mr. Kern. Tryouts for the Flashes Volleyball Club will be December 5-7 (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday) from 6:00-8:00 in the main gym at FC. Congratulations once again to the 7th Grade Boys Basketball Team and Coach Hoover. Your Flashes defeated East in the 2nd round of the Marion County Tournament, 37-27, and will advance to this Saturday's quarterfinals at Southport Middle School and face off with the host Cardinals. Tip-off is 9am. Doors open to the public at 8:15am. Go FLASHES! Did you know today is National Fritter Day? Fritters come in a variety flavors and fillings, then are deep-fried.

Mrs. Hall, our substitute teacher who is very interested in space travel, brought in actual moon rocks shared with her by NASA. The rocks are 4.6 million years old. Students were allowed to hold and examine them. The students were excited to get to participate in this very rare experience! Katie G.
