We Are Growing!

Dear Parents and Guardians of Westport Students,

Westport is growing! We are experiencing a surge in enrollment this school year. Therefore, we have to transition some students into new classes and reorganize for the school year. There is a lot of thought and staff input that goes into these decisions and we do not make the move without taking many factors into consideration.

The final reorganization will be made by the District Norm Day deadline of Friday, September 15, 2023. We will notify families of the students who will be transitioning to a new class. We know that you might have some questions. You can leave a message for the principal if you have specific concerns not to be shared in a general office hour setting.

Thank you,
J. Hughes
