Students now have the curriculum for all classes. Students should be logging on and working for approximately 3-4 hours everyday at HOME.  The students are able to login at home and pick up right where they left off from the previous day. Remember, if a student wants to improve a score on an assignment or an assessment, they may REDO any assignment or assessment for another chance.

P.E. at Westside Academy

PE letters with sports equipment

Students are responsible for completing 400 minutes of physical activity every two weeks. This includes students who are on home study. This averages out to 40 minutes per school day. Students are responsible for filling out and returning their P.E. verification log. These logs are available in class, or students can download the form by CLICKING HERE. Each log is worth 10 points and counts towards the PE grade.

School Lunches

Get in the game with school lunch

Remember that the meal applications on file from last year only carry over for the first month of school. This gives time for you to submit your application and get it approved.

Those families who do not turn in an application for the current school year will be removed from the meal program. Parents are responsible for any fees incurred for lunches after the approval expires, so be sure and turn in your application as soon as possible!

You can apply for the meal program online at http://www.wusdnutrition.com. You can find out more about pre-paying for your child's meals at http://www.mypaymentsplus.com.
