To Parents of Kindergarten Children: In the Spring, the Board set the Kindergarten Enhanced Fee at $100, to cover the cost of enhanced, in-school activities and field trip expenses for Kindergarten children. In September, with the uncertainty surrounding the 2020-2021 school year, the Division decided to charge the Kindergarten Enhanced Fee in two installments. The first installment of $50.00 was charged in September to all Kindergarten children. Our school has completed a reassessment, reviewing both the expenses to-date as well as the activities planned for the remainder of the school year. We will be charging an additional $50.00 on February 1, to continue to provide resources and support activities to enhance Kindergarten education.
Entry into the school begins at 8:15 am. Please do not send students to school earlier than this, as there is no supervision.
Online Attendance Reporting Now Available – WHPS now has an Online Absence Reporting Form on our website. When reporting an absence through this method, please use the email addresses we have on file with your contact information. This will reduce the number of follow up calls we may have to make. You can still leave a message on our voice mail box between the hours of 4:00 pm and 8:00 am, email your child’s teacher (please cc either or both firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) in case the teacher is absent that day.
Junior High Students Leaving School Grounds – If you wish to give your junior high student permission to leave school grounds during the lunch hours, please log into your parent account to complete the form. Please note that if students choose to leave the school for the lunch hour, they are not able to reenter the school until 12:45 pm. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
For the 2020-2021 school year:
There will be NO VOLUNTEERING at this time. This, unfortunately, means no hot lunches, microwave days, bake sales, parents coming in to read, and parents coming into the school with their children.
The elementary milk program will not run until further notice.
Please note that school fees are due. Check your PowerSchool account for any money outstanding as soon as possible. WHPS has a partnership with COBS Bread Bakery. If you mention you are from West Haven Public School when purchasing your goodies, the school will get 5% back. It’s a win win!! REMEMBER about our COOP number. Our number is 34666 and can be used when getting gas, groceries or liquor. Please use our school’s number as often as you can. Every dollar counts!
