Westwood Announcements
Cold Weather Clothing
With the weather getting colder, please remember to send appropriate outdoor clothing with your child for recess.  Err on the side of caution when deciding whether or not to send hats, mittens and winter coats with your child.  When the temperature and/or wind chill is at zero degrees or below, students will not go outside for recess and safety patrol will not be on outside duty.  Otherwise, recess will be held as scheduled.  Please remember to label all outdoor clothing with your child's name.
Visitors/Volunteers
At Westwood Elementary, we welcome visitors to our classrooms.  We ask that visits are pre-arranged and be limited to 30 minutes in length in order to minimize interruptions to instructional time.  If you plan to visit, please let your child's teacher know in advance.

We encourage parents to wait a couple of weeks after the beginning of school in the fall before visiting so that our staff and students can settle into expectations, routines, etc.

Please bring your drivers license with you when visiting the building as we will be running a sex offender check on all visitors before they are let into the building.

Please note that a volunteer packet must be filled out yearly if you plan on volunteering at Westwood (including visiting class parties or going on field trips).  The background check portion is good for 5 years, however, the contact information needs to be filled out yearly.  If you have any questions please call the Westwood office or email Nicole.aplin@ankenyschools.org.
