HOMECOMING UPDATE

Westwood Staff & Students,

 

We have been notified that Kelly Reeves Stadium has a broken light fixture affecting lighting on a portion of the football field.  Due to this outage, the game has been moved to 5:00pm tomorrow afternoon.

The administration, coaches, and program leaders are working on last minute plans to transport our game participants to the stadium for this earlier game time which will necessitate them leaving during the school day.  In order to preserve instructional time, to ensure that all of our students have access to lunch, and to avoid the need for massive sub coverage, we will be running an altered bell schedule tomorrow 10/19/18.

Each block will be 83 minutes long.  Individual coaches/sponsors will send out SRAs for their groups’ specific leave times. I want to thank our wonderful coaches, directors, and sponsors for their collaboration and tremendous flexibility in making these last-minute changes to an important week’s schedule. I also want to thank the Westwood teachers, staff, and students for their flexibility in what has been a wild week.The bell schedule for tomorrow (10/19/18) will be as follows:

Due to a facility lighting issue at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Center field, a decision was made to change the start time of the Homecoming game on Friday, October 19th, to a 5pm kickoff. Our admin team and directors of groups participating in the activities met to work through a complicated set of logistical challenges. We are still participating in the Homecoming activities tomorrow evening, with the following schedule modifications:
We need every student to fill out this form ASAP so that we can coordinate the bus departures.
