Westside USD Reopening plans awaiting approval. Available on District and School Websites.
The TK-6th grade students in mild/moderate special day classes will return February 16th and the TK/K cohorts will return on February 22nd.
Parents will receive information about the new system for daily check-in which is currently required. You will find information about that system and directions for using it on the website. You will also find a video to help you with setting up the system either on your phone or on another device.
Some additional changes that have been made to facilitate reopening schools include the addition of 654 GPS ionizers to all HVAC units district-wide. These ionizers kill 99% of all germs, bacteria, and viruses, and are Underwriter’s Laboratories certified to deliver clean indoor air that is safe and healthy.
Monday, February 15th is Presidents Day. Our schools will be closed for that day.

Esperanza’s School Plan offers the on-going opportunity to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate a meaningful standards-based curriculum for all students. The goals, objectives, and activities have been identified and written based on needs expressed by students, parents, and staff input. These goals, objectives, and activities are established to improve and focus instruction at Esperanza’s Elementary School enabling students to meet grade level, district, and CA state standards.
The ELAC, School Site Council, and Grade Level Leadership Teams collaborated to develop and refine the plan and will continue to work towards the ongoing implementation, evaluation and revision of this plan as needed. Esperanza Elementary School's essential philosophical cornerstones include the concept that quality school programs are based on shared decision-making by all staff members in meeting school, district, and state guidelines.
