Any parent or guardian, whose child legally resides in Stamford and who will be five years old before January 2, 2018, is asked to register that child for Kindergarten now.  The steps for Kindergarten registration are simple—though all children must have proper immunization and proof of residency to be admitted to school. The parent or guardian must:

  1. Go to the district website to School Look Up to determine the child’s school.
  2. Go to the registration page to complete the online registration form and upload the following required documents (detailed descriptions and links are available on the website):
    • Original birth certificate (long form)
    • Photo ID of parent or legal guardian
    • Two form of proof of address
    • Current physical exam and immunization record
    • New Entrant Dental Form
    • If necessary, Authorization for Administration of Medication

Families who need assistance with the online process should make an appointment with their child’s school or with the Office of Family and Community Engagement by selecting the appointment manager on the Documents page located in the online registration form.

To expedite the process and eliminate confusion, parents and guardians should visit the district website for detailed information.

WHS Core Values

Westhill High School values learning because it promotes academic excellence, civic responsibility, and personal growth.  Our school encourages students to think creatively, work collaboratively, reason critically, and communicate effectively in order to be prepared for higher education and success in the 21st century.

Policy Reminders

The attendance policy has changed beginning with the 2016-17 school year.

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 as soon as possible upon the student's return to school. Phone calls and emails, while appreciated, will not count towards documentation.
 
 
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.

Passes Required for Late Bus

Students are not permitted to stay after school unless they are involved in an activity, tutoring or staying with a teacher for extra help.

Passes will be needed to board the 3:30pm buses. 

Alateen Meetings

Alateen meetings are every Wednesday at 8:21 in the Raynor Conference Room. All students who have a family member or friend affected by alcohol use are welcome.
