Back to School Update

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe school is right around the corner!  We hope you are staying healthy and finding time to enjoy the weather.

The first day of school will be on Monday, August 30, 2021 for our Eagles.  This day will be a full day for students.  School will be in session from 7:50 am – 2:40 pm.

This memo is filled with important information.  Please take the time to read all sections so you are up to date with current information and understand what needs to be completed prior to school beginning.

Throughout the year we will communicate with you weekly in this format. More frequent communication may be required at the start of the school year to ensure you have all the information you need to start the year successfully with your student.

We look forward to working alongside you to make this an amazing year for your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to one of us directly at eatone@wwcsd.net or sheppardl@wwcsd.net.

Sincerely,

Erin Eaton & Lisa Sheppard

Open House – Save the Date!

We will have our Open House on August 26, 2021 from 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM.  We invite you and your student to come meet teachers, pick-up schedules, check-out Chromebooks and tour the school.  Please complete the technology agreement form above to expedite Chromebook distribution prior to Open House.

2020/2021 Yearbooks will be available for pick-up at Open House.  If you can not attend this, we will send your child’s home with him or her once school begins.

Additional Chromebook Distribution 

If you are unable to attend Open House or do not have a ton of time that evening, you may pick-up your child’s Chromebook prior from the main office on Tuesday, August 24th from 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM.  We will not be distributing schedules at this time (they will be available for viewing in Student/Parent Connect), teachers will not be available, and the building will not be open for touring.  This is only for Chromebooks if this option works better for you.

Sports Physicals 2021/2022 School Year

A MHSAA pre-participation sports physical is required for all students who participate in sports. A physical examination must be completed on or after April 15, 2021 to be considered a valid physical for 2021-22.

Please ensure this form is completed and submitted.  For appointments at the Beaumont Adams Clinic, please call 734-728-2423.

Fall sports tryout information will be shared soon!

Updating Registration for Current Students

Please log in to your ParentConnection account to update your child(ren)’s contact information as well as re-acknowledge important school policies.

If you have moved and need to change your address, you will need to bring your new mortgage/lease/current tax bill along with two other proofs of residency to the Administration Office located at 36745 Marquette, Westland MI 48185.

You must be on a computer to complete the registration as it is not mobile/tablet friendly.

MiStar App

For your ease and convenience, there is an app that has been created to have quick access to your Parent and Student Connection. In your Google App or Play store, type in “MiStar” and you will have the option to download the “Q ParentConnection” app for yourself and also the “Q StudentConnection” app for your child. If you get the app, you can select the “Re-Enrollment” in the drop down menu to submit your information that way as well.

Here Comes the Bus App

Wayne-Westland Community Schools has partnered with Here Comes the Bus to offer families an app that will help avoid students and parents from waiting too long for the bus. Here Comes the Bus allows parents to see where their child’s bus is along the route and when it will be at their bus stop.
