 We are accepting students in grades  7, and 8 for the 2021-22 school year.

 

 

Our campus is now open to in-person learning!  If you would like for your child to attend class in-person two days a week, please reply to this email so that we can schedule a time for them to attend. 

 

I have included the Progress Chart to reflect the progress your child should be at in each of their classes by the listed date.   Please see below for specific instructions on how to monitor your child’s grades and progress within the Peak program. 

 

Students should be spending 3-4 hours working in the curriculum per day. 

 

The web address for the students to access the curriculum is:

If you are interested in a program that allows your student the freedom and flexibility of working from home Westside Academy may be the place for you.  

 

Please email me at the address below if you would like to learn more about our program.

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.

 

 

Current Benchmark Completion Rates

Students should make sure that ALL assignments in a unit have a green checkmark before moving on to the next unit. You can also see completion rates on the weekly progress reports that are emailed home. Remember that students should be continuing to work on their lessons from home. They should pick up where they left off at school. The website URL is http://peak.getfueled.com.

 


 

Students and parents can find completion information in the weekly information that is emailed from PEAK as well as on the home page of the student's class (look at the progress bar).

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.
