Message from the Principal

Dear Families,


A few notes:


We are asking all parents who might like to chaperone a field trip or work with students to go through the process of completing background checks.  Many of you have already processed these checks through your volunteer work with other organizations.  Those clearances are the same that we need here.  The Human Resources department here at Westtown oversees this process. This document contains FAQ's, a checklist of necessary websites.  Please email all forms to  If you completed this process last year, your clearances are still good. 


Conferences are Thursday afternoon and evening, October 5 and Friday morning, October 6.  There is no school on Friday, October 6 and Monday, October 9, for our Fall Break Weekend.


Thanks for all the donations for the hurricane victims. The growing pile on and all around the table in the lobby captures your generosity.  We will continue to collect items until next Friday.  A huge thank you to the Kwaszkiewicz family for bringing us this project and for taking care of shipping the items to relief organizations in Florida and Texas.


Hope Fall Fest is on your calendar for tomorrow.  See you there!
