New Student Information Packet 2023-2024 (Printable)

Let's Connect:

To help you get started, we are passing along some helpful information as your student(s) begin the school year.

PowerSchool

PowerSchool is the student information system that WWS uses to track your student’s grades, attendance, fees due, and demographic information. Students will be shown how to access PowerSchool and encouraged to use it often. Parents must create an account and add their children using an Access code and Password given to them by their child's school. Please be aware that the Access Code and password are case-sensitive. PowerSchool is generally disabled in the middle of the summer and re-opens before school starts. You can learn more about PowerSchool and how it can be a helpful tool for your students K-12 on our website: https://wws.powerschool.com/public

Canvas

Canvas is a program students in grades 5-12 will use in their classes. It allows the teachers to communicate with students, post homework assignments, and the most important dates on the calendar, such as upcoming tests & quizzes. If your child is absent during the school year, this is where you will find the work that needs to be made up. You can learn more by clicking here.  Additional Canvas support tools are available on the WWS Parent University web page under “resources.”

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is the program students grades K-4 will use to support eLearning/virtual learning. Need help logging into Google Classroom? Click Here

4

LunchTime

You can add money to your student’s lunch account using the School Payment Portal, LunchTime. You can also see what your student has purchased daily for lunch and/or breakfast. On this site, you can limit your student’s purchasing options. For example, if you see that your student is buying multiple cookies every day, you can restrict that. 

5

Free & Reduced Application

The 2023-2024 applications are open. Click here to apply. This program offers assistance in providing your child/children with nutritious school meals for free or at a reduced price. A new application must be completed each school year. You can also come to the Administration Building (19500 Tomlinson Road, Ste B, Westfield, IN 46074) between 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM to complete an application online. Please contact Cindy Nicole, Accounts Receivable/Purchase Coordinator (317) 867-8019 or via email at nicolec@wws.k12.in.us Families will be notified by mail once their application is processed. 

 

At Westfield Washington Schools, we do everything possible to ensure our MVP participants feel no social stigma about applying to the program. Participants and their parents can be confident that all information is confidential. Countless studies show that children who eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch perform better in the classroom, are tardy/absent less often, and are more attentive throughout the day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the WWS Food Service office at 317-867-8062. We look forward to serving you during the school year.

Technology Assistance

If you have technology issues when eLearning occurs, please call 317.867.8087 and leave a message. Someone will get back to you: Chromebook Guidelines and the 1:1 FAQ.

eLearning

What is eLearning? Instead of missing class on snow days (or school cancellations for other reasons), students would work on class materials from home. Adopting an eLearning School Cancellation plan, created with the involvement of Westfield Washington teachers, would limit the need for school days to be tacked on to the end of the school year.

 

How will it work? Teachers and staff will facilitate and support instruction during eLearning. Students and parents can reach them through email, Canvas/Google Classroom, phone calls, social media, and help desk. Office hours will be communicated before eLearning takes place.


Is my child involved? Yes! ALL children in WWS, from K-12, will participate in eLearning! Students in grades K-4 will have five school days to complete their eLearning assignments and will be informed of their lessons, activities, and assignments through Google Classroom. Students in grades 5-12 will be informed of their lessons, activities, and assignments through Canvas on the day of cancellation and will have two school days to complete the work. All assignments will be posted by 10:00 AM on the day of the cancellation. Additional information can be found on the district website under the Learning Systems department.

School Times/Days

To ensure our teachers have substantial and consistent opportunities for professional development, Wednesdays at all WWS schools will delay start times by 30 minutes to allow for professional teacher learning. End times will remain the same. This concept is consistent with many districts across the state that have delayed starts to provide professional learning time—Wednesday Start Time (buses will arrive 30 minutes later than normal).
