Dear West Springfield High School Students and Families:
Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 School Year! We are excited to welcome back WSHS students back to the building on August 31, for the first day of school. In this mailing you will find the District Calendar, Lunch Application, Chromebook Insurance form or waiver, a student Chromebook Acknowledgement form, Letter from the Athletic Trainer, Yearbook Order Form, Health form, and information on the Parent Portal. Please take the time to read each document, and if you have any questions please contact the main office (413)263-3400 or the guidance office (413)263-3478. Student schedules will be available on the Parent Portal beginning August 18. Schedules will not be mailed home.
WSHS will continue to focus on the importance of a positive school culture and community. We will do this through our shared values and expectations outlined in the West Side Way:
Acting with Integrity
Striving for Excellence
We believe these are the foundational elements for all of our students to find success throughout High School and beyond.
We are fortunate at West Springfield High School that every student is able to be issued a Google Chromebook for use at school and home. Chromebook insurance can be paid online, by mail, or in person. Chromebooks will be distributed the first week of school however, students will not be provided a ChromeBook until the appropriate insurance documents are completed (included in this mailing).
Communication is a key component to our students’ success. I encourage everyone to regularly check their email, follow me on twitter (@WSPS_WSHS), and visit our website. The teachers and staff are here to support students and families. Please do not hesitate to reach out to ask questions or get clarification.
I look forward to the start of school and working with you through the year.
