New Start Time at West Platte
Posted on 07/19/2019
Announcement bannerWest Platte School District will have a new start time (5 minutes earlier) and our doors will open at 7:35 am this year and they will remain locked until 7:35 am. Our tardy bell will ring at 8:05 am and the elementary students will begin with Morning Circles so please try to ensure your student is in their class on time to avoid missing this opportunity.

The Elementary Open House will be from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm on August 19, please refrain from coming in early as teachers will be in Professional Development during the day and need time to work in their rooms before the Open House. We look forward to seeing you on the 19th!

Elementary new student enrollment will begin on August 8th at the school. Please bring your child's shot records, 2 forms to verify residency (utility bills, mortgage or lease agreement), records from former school (if you have them), IEP or 504 plans (if you have them).

Fall Registration for Grades 11-12 will be held on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Fall Registration for Grades 8-10 will be held on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Students can pick up and make changes to their schedules at this time, if needed, as well as pick up their school-issued devices and yearbook (if ordered). Students will have the first three days of the semester to make schedule changes as well.

You are invited to attend the 7th Grade/New Student Orientation on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, at 5:00 p.m.
