News & Announcements

Influenza-type illnesses

We have noticed an increase in the number of influenza-type illnesses in our schools, which is to be expected at this time of year. Cleaning protocols have been adjusted in all buildings in response to this increase. In addition, frequent handwashing and proper cough/sneeze etiquette are regularly reinforced with our students and staff.

In order to help prevent the spread of illness in the school setting, we request that you keep your child home if he/she exhibits the following: has a fever (of 100+) or signs of illness such as significant congestion, sneezing, coughing, or experiences symptoms of fatigue or discomfort. Please do not give fever reducers and send them to school. Please also consider keeping them home with a lower grade fever (99 degrees) with concurrent symptoms. An additional note to use caution in sending your child back to school before they are ready or with a low-grade fever as they may also be more susceptible to picking up a secondary infection.

Poetry Cafe

In celebration of Black History Month, Westchester Primary School is excited to announce our 1st annual Poetry Café! All students of Westchester Primary School are welcome to participate in this event. Students can participate individually or with a group. This event will take place at Westchester Primary School on Friday, February 21st at 1:30 pm. During the poetry reading, students and staff will commemorate the contributions that African Americans have made throughout history by reading selections from African American authors, poets, songwriters, and rappers, as well as original poetry about Black History. Everyone who attends is welcomed to perform.
