Upcoming Events
 
EMERGENCY INFORMATION
All Adams 12 Schools participate in safety training drills throughout the year.  In addition to monthly evacuation drills and severe weather drills in the spring, we also practice fall and winter lockdown drills. 

When parents are signed into the building as visitors or volunteers during an evacuation, we ask that they exit to south of the building if possible, and report to the Front Desk person who will verify, with the sign-in sheet, that they are safe and accounted for during the attendance check.  If they must exit with to the north, we ask that they check in with the staff member responsible for attendance reporting.

Our emergency relocation site is the City of Thornton maintenance facility at 12450 Washington Street.  Here is information for parents about what to do in a school crisis:  Parent Information
The most important thing you can do is KEEP EMERGENCY INFORMATION CURRENT!

In the event of a crisis, you will be notified if we are using an alternate reunification site.  Parents will be receive instructions via phone, text, website, or local news when accurate information is available.Please use the following link to view the parent training video for a parent reunification event:

STUDENT FEES
2014-2015 Student Fee

The Per Student Fee for 14-15 is $275 for a K-8 student and $300 for a high school student. This fee covers ALL school supplies for the whole school year, technology, licensing, software and updating, as well as most of the school year's activities and guest speakers. An exception would  be extra special optional activities such as outdoor ed or Civil War re-enactment.

The best news is that for each new family you refer to Westgate, they accept and attend through October 1st, you will get one student fee reimbursed to you. The actual fee is due at the beginning of this school year.

Standards Based Grading
Standards Based Grading
Westgate Community School uses Standard Score as our grade book for our Standard's Based Grading (SBG) system. This year we will be creating short videos to help parents understand our use of SBG and why we believe it is a progressive step forward in education.

Westgate Community School is committed to nondiscrimination in relation to race, color, sex, age, religion, creed, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation and disability in its educational programs, activities, operations and employment decisions. Harassment on such bases will not be tolerated.
