School Calendar: 2014-2015

Cyberbullying Information - Click here for information about Cyberbullying from the District's Character Education Committee and The Josephson Institute.

District 13’s Virtual Backpack - School District 13 is using a Virtual Backpack for distributing information to parents. The Virtual Backpack is helping us “go green” by allowing approved non-profit community organizations to post flyers online instead of making and distributing hundreds of paper copies. Doing so will also save the district and community members a tremendous amount of time and money.

Student Accident Information - Enrollment in the voluntary out of school student accident insurance can now be completed online. Click here for more information.

District 13 Health Website - Click here for state health requirements.

PowerSchool Parent Access - PowerSchool Parent Access is now available to all Westfield parents. PowerSchool Parent Access provides online access to student grades and attendance. Click here to learn how to use PowerSchool Parent Access.

Late Bus Information - District 13 has a late bus that runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning the second week of school. It arrives for pick up at Erickson at 4:35, at DuJardin at 4:50, and at Westfield at 5:05. This one bus covers most of the district bus territory, makes fewer stops, and can take an hour or more to complete its run, depending on the number of students. The late bus service is only available for regular bus riders.
