Dear Parents/Guardians: Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Portsmouth West Elementary! I am excited to be your principal, and I am looking forward to working with you and your students. It is going to be a great year! In order to address student safety concerns, parent pick-ups will be at the same doors (Music Room and Art Room), at 3:20. Parents will be required to park and walk to the doors to pick up their child. The fire lane will not be accessible. Please do not park on the grass. Let’s work together to keep all of our children safe. Just a few reminders for the upcoming year: Students will be counted as tardy after 8:55 a.m. Students leaving school (unexcused) before 3:00 p.m will be counted as an early dismissal. Students receiving 2 tardies and/or early dismissals in a nine week grading period will be assigned an after-school detention. These will be served from 3:45 to 4:45 on Wednesday or Thursday. #WeAreWest!

Goof Afternoon! For safety reasons, we have made a few changes regarding student pickups. K-2nd grade pickups will be dismissed at 3:20 to the Art Room door (#9). 3rd and 4th grade pickups will be dismissed at 3:20 to the Music Room door, (#10). No students will be dismissed from the front office between 3:00-3:20. Students dismissed before 3:00 pm will be considered as an early dismissal and marked absent from the time signed out. Thank you so much for helping to keep our students safe! #WeAreWest!

PWES does NOT have a latch-key program this year as my earlier post may have suggested. We will open the front doors at 7:30 for students to be dropped off as necessary due to parent work schedules. Unfortunately, we are unable to supervise a large number of students this early because the teaching staff does not report until 8:15. I hope this clears up the confusion. #WeAreWest!

The doors at PWES will not be open until 7:30 every morning for students to enter. At that time, supervision will be provided for your children, as well as homework help, time to work on assignments, etc. Please let me know if you have any questions.#WeAreWest!
