Dear rising juniors and seniors,

Join us as we roll out an exciting new program at Westhill next year!   Collaborate with other students to help the incoming 9th graders transition to high school.  As a member of the LanD Crew you have the unique opportunity to become a leader and have a positive impact on the student culture at Westhill.  We are looking for students who care about others and want to share their unique experiences and strengths with incoming freshman.  As a LanD Crew member you will make new and exciting social connections, dine with important people, secure future college recommendations and have a lot of fun!!

If you are interested, please attend information session in room 118 (The Little Theater) on May 27th at 2:10.  If you are unable to attend or would like more information, please contact Mr. Dunlap or Mr. Weintraub.

Dear Parents:

 

As per BOE policy, Westhill High School is a closed campus – that is to say that students are not allowed to leave the campus during the school day.  For the past few years, we have worked very hard to maintain the integrity of this regulation, to the extent where we have dedicated the day of a security person in the school car to stop students from leaving.  I understand totally why this is frustrating to our students, the seniors especially, but it is the policy and therefore must be adhered to at all times.  Students caught leaving will receive a school consequence by their grade level administrator.

 

The situation that has become equally time consuming is the number of students who come with a note from a parent that gives them permission to leave when they have a study hall during the long block (11:15-1:09) or a study hall during the last period of the day.

 

Also, we are experiencing a large volume of students that do not have notes and are requesting dismissal passes minutes before the time they need to leave.

 

It is here that I would request your cooperation moving forward.  Please do not write a note requesting early school dismissal unless it is absolutely necessary to do so.

Camille Figluizzi

Como parte del continuo esfuerzo de las Escuelas Públicas de Stamford de mejorar la comunicación y la participación de nuestras familias, nos complace dejarles saber que estamos lanzando nuestro Portal de Padres de PowerSchool para todos los padres de las escuelas (inter)medias y las escuelas secundarias (escuelas superiores) a partir del 20 de noviembre de 2014. 

Este portal le proporcionará acceso seguro a información sobre las calificaciones y los récords de asistencia de su niño(a)(s) de escuela (inter)media y / o escuela secundaria (escuela superior) por medio de una sola cuenta.  Para crear su cuenta, va a necesitar una computadora con acceso al Internet.  Si no tiene acceso a una computadora, puede visitar la biblioteca pública que le quede más cercana.  Hay también, adjunta, una hoja informativa detallada que debe guardar para su uso como referencia en el futuro.

There are approximately 250 scholarships on Naviance that are available to Seniors who are planning to go to college. Each scholarship has different application criteria and is looking for different things in student applicants. Some scholarships are looking for students with strong academic achievement, some are for athletes, some are for students who are planning to major in a particular area of study or pursue a particular career path, and others are for students with strong community service or a special interest. The goal of the Westhill Scholarship Program is to notify and inform students about specific scholarships that they are eligible for, and to provide guidance through the application process. 

In order to become part of the program you must submit the application package.

Policy Reminders

Absences:
When your child returns to school please have them report to Mr. Pereira in the main office between 7 to 7:25 in the morning with their documentation (parent note).
 
Early Dismissal: 

If there is a need for your child to leave school early, please send in a note (including a morning telephone number to confirm dismissal) with your child. They will be issued a yellow dismissal pass from class and you can meet your child in the office. Students should report to the main office before the warning bell for Block 1 to get the dismissal approved. We are hoping to greatly decrease the classroom interruptions that occur when we do not follow this procedure.
