WCS News & Headlines

The Westport Central School District Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Monday, August 3, 2015 at 6:00 PM in the Superintendent’s Office.  It is anticipated that the Board will immediately go into Executive Session for the purpose of discussing the medical, financial, credit or employment history of a particular person or corporation, or matters leading to the appointment, employment, promotion, demotion, discipline, suspension, dismissal or removal of a particular person or corporation.  All Board of Education meetings are open to the public.

Visitors During The School Day
In order to be certain that all of our students are safe, we need to be sure parents, family members and other visitors are aware of and adhere to the sign in and out procedures. 
Any person visiting the school during school hours (7:40 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) for any reason must:

  • Report directly to the main office.

  • Sign the Visitor Sign In/Out Sheet.

  • Obtain and affix a “Visitor Tag” if you will be entering the building beyond the lobby.

  • Obtain permission to enter the building beyond the lobby.

  • Wait in the lobby unless directed otherwise.

  • Return Visitor Tag and sign out of the building when exiting.


    • Arrival & Dismissal Times, Early Release Reminders

    • During the school year, the building will be open daily for students beginning at 7:40 a.m.

    • All students should arrive between 7:40 -  8:00 a.m.

    • Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria from 7:40 - 8:00 a.m.

    • Attendance will be taken promptly at 8:05 a.m.

    • The school day officially begins at 8:05 a.m.  All students are expected to be in their assigned classrooms at this time.  Students arriving after 8:05 a.m. will be marked tardy as outlined in our Attendance Policy.

    • All students will be dismissed at 3:00 p.m.

    • The main office will need to be notified in advance by a parent/guardian should there be a need to change the regular arrival/dismissal routine of a student (i.e.:  change in bus route, parent pick up instead of bus ride, early release, etc.).

    • Documentation will be required for any absence, late arrival and/or early departure.
