West Park Friday Afternoon Parent Update 3/12/2021
Greetings, WPE families and students!
We had a great week at West Park; school is humming along with instruction and curious learning.
*The WPE and Center staff put together items for a time capsule in the new LCES. Pictured below, it will be placed in the hearth of the new building. I wonder when it will be opened again?
*Don’t forget to “Spring Forward” your clocks one hour on Saturday night! It will be nice to enjoy evenings with more light.
*I want to let you know that the Board is exploring the idea of shifting from our hybrid model to a full time, in-person model for students in grades PreK-5. Please click on this link to learn more about what WPE’s model would look like. Link to the board packet it here
The Board meets on 3/12. Topic: March 12 LCSD Special Meeting
Time: Mar 12, 2021 02:30 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)
Join Zoom Meeting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87609382557?pwd=Vm1kNjZpbjB5Y3laRjdMamtieVRwZz09 .
Virtual students with Ms. Perez and Ms. Seifert would remain in their virtual program for the rest of the year. If you have questions, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please continue to send your child with their health screener completed. We have many students who do not arrive with a health screener paper; we hope to get students to class quickly and avoid congestion at our doorways. If you need more screener papers, please contact your child’s teacher to send more home.

*A few reminders to help your child’s day at school be as successful as possible:
*Please drop off your children by 8:00am if they should eat breakfast at school, and by 8:10 if they have eaten at home. We start class at 8:10 and students are considered tardy who arrive after 8:10.
*School ends at 3:20. Please pick up your child after 3:20 each day. We really appreciate you waiting patiently in your car as your child will be called and will walk out to your vehicle.
*If you have any end of day changes in plans, please let the front office know by 2:30 so that we can get them the correct message in time for dismissal! 719-486-6890.
*We play outside every day! Please be sure to send your child with snow pants, jacket, hats, gloves, and boots.
*Please send your child’s device with them to school each day – it is an important part of our school supplies, and it makes your child’s day more challenging when they do not have their device.
*If you have any tech concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the problem.
