Dear Parents and Guardians,
I look forward to working with each and every Hilltopper family as we begin the 2014/15 school year together. It is my pleasure to serve the Westmont Hilltop School District as the Elementary School Principal for the upcoming school year. Please refer to the website often, as there are many updates posted.
NEW! Effective for the 2014-2015 School Year: Afternoon Bus Drop-Off Guidelines:
1. Each elementary student may have one alternate afternoon bus stop in addition to his or her primary bus stop. This alternate stop includes daycare centers. This request should be communicated to the school at the beginning of the school year or during registration in the district. If the alternate stop is requested during the school year, a note must be sent to the school at least one week prior to the first day the student will need to go to the alternate location.
A list of bus stops can be found at www.whsd.org
, Bus Schedules
. No additional bus stops will be added to the list of published stops.
2. Kindergarten and Grade 1 students will have name tags to allow school and bus staff to more efficiently identify and help each student get safely from school to home.
3. Kindergarten and Grade 1 parents are required to be present at their children's bus stops when buses arrive in the afternoon. Bus drivers will return students to the school if there is not an adult present at the stop. The one exception to this requirement is if the Kindergarten or Grade 1 child has a sibling in Grade 2, 3, and/or 4 riding home with the younger child and exiting at the same bus stop. Parents/guardians must send a note to school informing the office that a sibling will be responsible for getting the younger child off the bus.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! I can't wait to meet all of you and I look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces in the fall. We are going to have a GREAT year together...I'm SUPER excited and I hope that you are, too!!
