• Greetings Westlake Families!

    This is Mr. Ferrer, Principal, with a couple of important announcements before the first day of school, August 22.  

    Thank you to all of the families who attended our Saturday Registration Day, we hope the process was not too overwhelming for you and if you have any feedback on how we can improve our process, please let me know.

    For those of you who did not attend registration, you will need to complete the mandatory registration paperwork this week in our Main Office.  Just a reminder, scholars cannot start school until they have completed registration.  We will be open for registration on the following days & times this week:

    • Tuesday 9:00-12:00 or 1:00-3:00

    • Wednesday 9:00-12:00 or 1:00-3:00

    • Thursday 9:00-12:00

    • Friday 1:00-3:00


    Also, this Friday from 10:00-12:00 is our 6th grade & New Student Orientation in the cafeteria. This orientation is for any new incoming scholars who are not familiar with our campus.  Parents are welcomed to attend, but are not required to.

    Lastly, school starts on Monday, August 22nd.  School begins at 8:25 and ends at 3:15 each day except Wednesdays when we end at 12:38.  Scholars should receive a supply list from their teachers as to what supplies they might need for their classes.  We will also be assigning lockers the first week of school.  Scholars will not be dressing for their PE classes immediately and do not have to purchase PE clothes from us.  The standard PE uniform will be a white t-shirt or sweater and green shorts or sweatpants.

    You will also be receiving a weekly recorded phone call from me each Friday starting next Friday, the 26th.  If you cannot listen to the phone message, please review the message on our school website.

    Thank you for all of your support and we look forward to seeing all of our scholars next Monday.  Please remember to take care of yourself, take care of one another, and take care of Westlake!


    Mr. Ferrer
