Dear Westhill Family:

 

Opening day was a great one --- I want to say thank you to all who were here today for their patience. We had a minimum of schedule issues which we are working through and it is my goal to be all done with changes by Friday. We began today with revisions for seniors and we will work our way through the classes by Friday.

 

Kudos to our freshmen --- they were looking hot and tired by day’s end, but they too, will be in a much better place at the end of the week.

 

I ask that all forms (lunch, emergency cards) be returned as soon as possible so we have all the info we need for the year.

 

Of course if there are questions and/or concerns please email or phone me immediately.

Principal

At this point only changes in core courses and graduation requirements will be made. Any changes in electives must wait until Tuesday September 8th at which time a program of change form will be needed.

It is that time of year again when we will be holding our annual Photo Days at Westhill High School, wherein students have the photo taken that will appear IN the Yearbook and ON their Student ID cards (provided free of charge by the school).

Photo Days are as follows:

  • Tuesday, September 1: 9th Grade
  • Wednesday, September 2: 10th Grade
  • Thursday, September 3: 11th Grade
  • Friday, September 4: 12th Grade*** ID's ONLY!

Students will go to their scheduled Photo Day with their English classes. In the event that their class is "dropped" on the day their grade is supposed to go, the teacher will elect to go on a different day. ***Students must ask their ENGLISH TEACHER what day their class will go to Photo Day, if they wish to dress and "groom" accordingly.***

 

12TH GRADERS ONLY: It is a tradition that our 12th graders typically dress-up, often with wigs / crowns / other "accoutrement" for their Senior ID photo. They will NOT be taking their Yearbook photo on 9/4. Instead, if they DIDN'T come in to take their Formal Yearbook Portrait over the summer, they may make it up on Photo Days "just for them" in October and November. More information to follow by email.

WANT TO ORDER PICTURES? For Grades 9, 10 and 11 ONLY: Prestige Portraits - a division of Lifetouch Studios - has mailed to each Westhill family a white envelope with the words, "Important School Picture Day Information Enclosed" in blue on the outside of the envelope. This envelope has enclosed your ordering materials for those of you who wish to purchase. If you did not receive this envelope or misplaced it, we have extra forms on the counter in the Main Office, AND in Room 432. If you have any questions regarding your order, please call Prestige Portraits at 800-426-9533 ext 117.

¡Bienvenido(a) a PowerSchool Parent Portal (Portal de Padres de PowerSchool)! Los estudios han mostrado que la participación de los padres en la educación de un niño(a) es el factor más importante de todos en el éxito estudiantil. 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.

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:
After a student returns from any absence they are to report to Mr. Pereira's office (located in the 100s, across from Room 103) between 7:00 and 7:20am.
 
Mr. Pereira will review their absence documentation (doctor’s note, etc.) and issue them a slip to present - with their note - to their teachers. Students must have each teacher sign the slip on the appropriate line, in order to document the rationale behind the absence. At the end of the day, the student is responsible for returning the slip (with all signatures) and documentation to a mailbox in the main office designated for this purpose.
 
NOTE: Absence documentation should come in the form of a note (parental, doctor, court summons - as examples) and within 2 school days (48 hours) of the student's return to school. Phone calls, while appreciated, will not count towards documentation. If you had emailed your child's teachers and/or guidance counselor please print out the email and have your child bring that to Mr. Pereira.
 
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.
