You can participate in our monthly kindness initiative, become a member of the KINDNESS CLUB or JR. HOPE SQUAD, and commit to be an Upstander--not a bystander--if you see people being unkind.
Remember what Dr. Hank said:
If you have questions or concerns about bullying, please ask your teacher or inquire at the main office. If you see bullying happen, notify the nearest adult, and tell your teacher right away!
Parents with concerns may send an email to the teacher, Mrs. Thomas, or call us in the office at (801) 374-4870.
Help us keep Westridge a great place to learn and work!

Safety Information From District:
The district has released the following letter concerning school safety in our district.
We have a new system called Parent Link. This system will call home when a student has been marked absent and it is unexcused. If you receive an attendance message, please take the initiative to call the school and excuse the absence. State law requires us to maintain attendance records and intervene when there is inconsistent attendance. The Parent Link system should also be calling to remind parents to deposit money in lunch accounts, and will have the capacity to send other important messages home as well. Look for more instructions on the Parent Link system in the coming days. You will be able to log onto the system and adjust settings so the calls will come to different numbers or through text messaging as needed.
Important School Safety Reminders:
• ALL visitors need to check in at the office and get a visitor's badge
before going anywhere in the school.
• Please do not park in the drop off zone in the mornings. If you need to walk your children in, please park in a designated parking stall. The same is true during afternoon pickup. Park only in designated stalls.
• When dropping off children, enter on the east side only and exit in two lines only on the west side.
• Roller blades, skateboards, scooters and bikes are not to be ridden or used on school grounds and in the building. Before entering onto school property, students need to remove roller blades, carry skateboards and walk their scooters and bikes. All bikes brought to the school should be properly stored in one of the bikes racks provided by the school. It is strongly recommended that all students lock their bikes.
Thank you for your help and cooperation!
An important reminder that all passengers in vehicles must be buckled up it's the law. Please drive cautiously as you enter and exit school grounds.
