Principal's Welcome

  • August 24, 2021 


    Welcome Back West Side Academy Family!  


    While I know this has been a challenging time for all of us, I truly believe there is nothing like the start of a brand-new school year. I am so happy knowing how excited the staff here at West Side Academy is to see all of you in person for this upcoming school year. We have spent countless hours preparing to ensure that every member of our school community will be safe.  


    With that being said, I wanted to talk about some of the safety protocols we have in place to get this year started. There will be adequate PPE supplies, including masks, wipes, and hand sanitizer in every classroom/office.  Temperature checks and symptom check signage is installed at multiple entry point. We will have a dedicated school nurse on-site and an isolation area for any sick students.  Handwashing, masks/social distancing signage and maximum occupancy signs are posted for every room in the building. Additionally, cleaning checklists for classrooms, offices, bathrooms, and the isolation area are in place.  

    We are so excited to begin another wonderful year here at West Side Academy and we can't wait to see you. We look forward to our first day of school, Tuesday, September 7th, 2021. Please join us for one of our two parent/student orientation sessions being held virtually on teams:
