Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend! 

Welcome to the last week of the 2021-22 school year! As we approach graduation and the last week of school, it’s worth reflecting on what a year it has been. Re-entering the school environment has been full of obstacles and challenges, and have been met with success and celebration. We certainly still have some work today as we head into next year, but it’s worth taking a breath and being grateful for an amazing year. 

As we close out the year, I do want to take a second to highlight two days this week: Graduation and the Last Day of school. Both of these days will have modified, shorter schedules and will not have any exams, culminating activities, or new material. Please make sure to check them out below.  

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Westfield High School Bulldog Bootcamp for Class of 2026 

Bulldog Bootcamp is truly a great opportunity to start off on the right foot at Westfield High School. 

Bulldog Bootcamp is staffed by faculty and student leaders, as well as administrators and counselors!  This provides a great opportunity to meet important leaders and make connections within Westfield before school starts.

Activities & Events

Student leaders will take participants on guided tours of Westfield HS, and include answers to important questions. Which stairwells are most crowded?  Where do the freshmen hang out? What is a subschool?  What about lockers? Where do I go to get questions answered? etc.

Motivational speakers will include administrators, faculty leaders and students. Instructional seminars will be held by faculty leaders about such topics as college and career goals, scheduling experiences, AP/Honors classes, electives experience, and academy experiences.

Leadership and Student Government representatives will be hands-on to share their Westfield experiences and why students should be involved in Leadership & SGA.   These students will also serve as daily greeters, table leaders and talk with the rising 9th graders about some of the activities and school events that are planned by the Student Leadership team.  They will share personal experiences about clubs, sports, homecoming, school climate and more!

Concessions will be open for students to purchase snacks and water. Other activities during the boot camp include games from the student leaders, an end of camp celebration, Team Building activities, and every camper will receive a Bulldog Bootcamp goodie bag.

Topic: Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications/Summer Meals

Families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for SY 22-23. For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. However, the extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year.

I encourage you to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application prior to the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer. Watch your email and our website for more information. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online.

No-cost summer meals will be served at all FCPS summer school locations this year. Please visit the FCPS website for updated information during the summer. 

If you have questions about the Free and Reduced-Price Meals program, the additional benefits your child may receive, or no-cost summer meals, please contact [insert your school’s point of contact]. We are happy to help.

Laptop turn-in begins this week, along with our first graduation rehearsal. There is a lot going on as we bring the school year to a close and we want you to be on top of all of it.

Good Morning Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend!

This week marks the start of the final weeks of the school year. Senior exams begin this week, final performances are going on in performing arts, and we are getting deep into the athletics postseason. This Friday afternoon, we are also having a Pep Rally honoring spring athletics and performers, and celebrating the school year. It’s a great time to be a Bulldog! 

Please work with your students so that they are prepared for the upcoming close to the year. There are things like culminating activities for classes, laptop turn-in, and a variety of school close out items that can get confusing. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your counselor or subschool. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

FCPS' Family Return to School Survey Is Coming Soon

Now that FCPS has transitioned back to a more typical school experience, the school division is interested in hearing from parents/caregivers about how the school year has gone for their students. You will have an opportunity to provide your feedback on our Family Return to School Survey which will open Tuesday, May 31, and close Friday, June 10. 

The survey is being administered by the FCPS Office of Research and Strategic Improvement, which provides objective research and data-based information back to the school division’s leadership. The survey is part of the office’s continuing evaluation of the pandemic’s impact on our school division. We encourage all FCPS parents/caregivers to respond to the survey and share their experiences whether positive or negative. The information you and other families provide will be used, along with other data, to inform FCPS leadership about the return to five days a week of in-person instruction, and support FCPS’ efforts to make improvements that support schools, students, and staff. It will also be included in ESSER III reporting.

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend!

We had some great things this past week. To start, our Choir performed at the School Board meeting this weekend. We had 3 sports programs with big wins: Baseball, Softball, and Girls Lacrosse. Still in the mix for district play this week is Track, Baseball, Softball, and both Girls and Boys Soccer. There is a lot of postseason left in our athletics department! 

Lastly, we are seeing some events that symbolically mark the final push of the year. First, this past Friday was our Senior Prom. The event went fantastically and it appeared that students (and staff) had a great time! This week we also begin our WeStep program as seniors spend their final days getting experience in the community either through internships or job opportunities. It really is an exciting time of the year! 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend and celebrate the moms in your family. 

Speaking of celebrations, this past week was Teacher Appreciation Week. We had a great time celebrating the amazing work of our teachers and staff members. It is important to remember that one week does not even begin to approach the amount of recognition an appreciation that these hard working, dedicated individuals deserve. Throughout the year, our instructional staff work tirelessly to support our students. We are truly grateful! 

This week will mark 4 weeks until graduation. This time of the year moves quickly and can also get frantic and stressful for your students. Please encourage them to stay on top of their responsibilities and plan out their end of the year. The last thing we want is for students to have been working hard all year only to trip up at the end. We’re looking forward to a strong finish!

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend!

This week’s Bulldog Breakdown is full of information. It’s the time of year where there are a lot of different calendars that converge: academic testing, activities, and end of year. Please take some time to check out the upcoming events below that pertain to you and your students. Families of Seniors need to especially pay attention to things such as exams, WeStep, and graduation. If you have any questions, please reach out to your subschool. 

This week we kick off our AP and SOL exams.  I know that testing may cause stress and anxiety for some students and families. In an attempt to help, here are some simple tips to think about with your students in helping improve performance and reduce stress (both for you and them): Remind them to break down review in chunks as opposed to “cramming” all in one night, make sure your they get a good night’s sleep throughout the week, make sure they eat breakfast the day of the exam, and encourage them to be confident in what they’ve learned. This is a singular data point in their academic career, and while it is important, it does not define them as learners or individuals.  

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Online Tickets encouraged.

Cash or Check only at the door.

Dates: 

May 6 & 7

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Topic: Opportunities to Engage with Dr. Reid

Our incoming superintendent, Dr. Michelle Reid, is visiting FCPS next week to learn more about our schools and community. During her visit, there will be a special, in-person event for staff, families, and students on Tuesday, May 3, starting at 7 p.m. More details, including how to register and submit questions, will be shared with you directly via email in the coming days. 

On Tuesday, May 17, Dr. Reid will join staff, families, and students for a multilingual virtual town hall, starting at 7 p.m. We will share details about this event in newsletters and directly via email.

 

Topic: Updated Isolation Procedures for Students Effective May 1

Since the start of the pandemic, Fairfax County Public Schools has regularly reviewed and adjusted our health and safety guidance in alignment with recommendations from local, state and national health experts.

As a result, FCPS will be changing current isolation procedures for students who have tested positive for COVID-19. Beginning May 1, 2022, your child may return to in-person instruction and activities, including athletics, when your child has met the following criteria:

  • Student has completed at least five days of isolation; AND 
  • Student is fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication; AND
  • Student’s symptoms have improved or resolved
  • Student wears a well-fitting mask for 5 additional days (day six through day 10) after the end of the 5-day isolation period, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance

If students are unable to wear a mask when around others, they are to continue to isolate for a full 10 days at home.

Children who are in isolation will continue to have access to our StreamIn/CheckIn during this time. 

The new procedure aligns with the timeline recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD). It also follows improving vaccination rates in the Fairfax Health District, as well as a continued community level of low in Fairfax County.

We continue to balance the need for students to have a high-quality in-person learning experience with student and staff safety. By adhering to our layered prevention strategies and increasing vaccination rates, we are all doing our part to keep schools safe.

 

Topic: Morning Attendance Notifications 

Morning attendance calls, texts, and e-mails are suspended until June 10. Many of our students are involved in AP and SOL testing and are in designated testing sites during our normal attendance-taking time. Evening attendance notification will continue. Parents and guardians, continue to use the normal absence reporting. If you have any questions, please contact your subschool.

Change in Religious and Cultural Observance Day

Eid al-Fitr will be observed by Muslims around the world this May 2nd and May 3rd. The date of Eid services/celebrations can shift due to the lunar calendar and can vary by community and country. At the time the FCPS calendar was developed, local Eid observances were expected to occur on May 3rd, but because local Eid observances shifted to May 2nd, the FCPS Employee Newsletter on February 8th announced a change in the Religious and Cultural Observance day in FCPS for Eid-al-Fitr from May 3rd to May 2nd, 2022.

AP Exam Schedule

After careful consideration, FCPS leadership decided to continue with the established AP exam schedule for May 2, 2022. 

Students registered for  AP exams on May 2nd (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, US Government) will need to request late testing if they are unable to attend due to the Eid religious observance. 

May 3rd exams that were previously rescheduled for May 17th will remain on May 17th (AP Psychology and AP Environmental Science). 

Requesting a late AP Exam due to May 2nd Eid Observance

Students who are unable to attend May 2nd AP exams (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, or US Government) due to the Eid religious observance need to contact Westfield’s AP Testing Coordinators no later than April 22nd to request late testing.

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy a fantastic weekend. I also want to wish a happy Easter, Passover, and Theravada for all that celebrate!

There are not many new updates this week, but I do urge you to check out the information from the county. One specific thing to look at is the free, virtual tutoring program that the county is providing. This is a new resource for all students and became active this week. There is more information below on how to use this great opportunity. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Westfield High School AP Exam Schedule Updates

Change in Religious and Cultural Observance Day

Eid al-Fitr will be observed by Muslims around the world this May 2nd and May 3rd. The date of Eid services/celebrations can shift due to the lunar calendar and can vary by community and country. At the time the FCPS calendar was developed, local Eid observances were expected to occur on May 3rd, but because local Eid observances shifted to May 2nd, the FCPS Employee Newsletter on February 8th announced a change in the Religious and Cultural Observance day in FCPS for Eid-al-Fitr from May 3rd to May 2nd, 2022.

AP Exam Schedule

After careful consideration, FCPS leadership decided to continue with the established AP exam schedule for May 2, 2022. 

Students registered for  AP exams on May 2nd (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, US Government) will need to request late testing if they are unable to attend due to the Eid religious observance. 

May 3rd exams that were previously rescheduled for May 17th will remain on May 17th (AP Psychology and AP Environmental Science).

Topic: Discontinuation of COVID Testing (Apr. 22)

To limit the spread of COVID-19 and to keep schools open safely, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has been providing a COVID-19 screening and diagnostic testing program to students and staff as part of its layered prevention strategies

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the community level for Fairfax County is currently classified as low; this classification has continued for the past month. In addition, Fairfax Health District COVID-19 Vaccination Status indicates that more than 70% of all Fairfax Health Districts residents have been fully vaccinated (defined by receiving two of a two-dose vaccine or one of a single-dose vaccine). More than 80% of residents have received one COVID-19 vaccine dose. Vaccination rates by age group indicates that more than 50% of students ages 5-11 and more than 90% of students ages 12-17 have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.  COVID-19 Vaccinations  are free and available at various locations in our community.  

Based on these metrics and CDC guidance, FCPS will discontinue the following prevention strategies on April 22, 2022: 

 If students or employees have symptoms and need to get tested, the following options are available:

  • COVID-19 Testing is available at various sites throughout Fairfax County and the state.
  • At-Home Test Kits - Students leaving the school CARE Room with symptoms of illness are provided an at-home test kit. 
  • Test-To-Stay Program - In partnership with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), FCPS is providing access to the Test-To-Stay program for students who have been identified as a close contact when an outbreak has been declared. This program is available to any student who meets eligibility criteria and whose parent/legal guardian has provided consent for their participation. 

 

While we are encouraged by the continued decline in COVID-19 cases in our community, we are also committed to keeping our schools safe for all to learn and work in person. Please continue to do your part to maintain a healthy learning environment by using layered prevention strategies including hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, monitoring for illness, and staying home when sick. Employees should still report positive test results to their supervisor.

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family were able to enjoy an incredible Spring Break!

We are excited to welcome your students back as we start our final quarter for the 2021-22 school year. This last surge of the year is full of a wide variety of events and activities, both academically and extra/co-curricularly as well. I encourage both you and your students to make sure to try and stay ahead of schedules so things don’t pile up. Also, this will help to make sure that you don’t miss out on. While busy, this is also one of the most exciting times of the school year!

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Westfield Dogs of Steel Robotics 

Our Westfield Dogs of Steel robotics team had their first win of the season at the FIRST Robotics Chesapeake District event in Washington DC on March 6th.  In the initial qualification rounds of the DC competition, it was a real nail-biter, as Dogs of Steel was trailing, but they pulled out an amazing win with fellow alliance partners at the end of the day!   They also made the finals for their second major competition, but unfortunately did not medal.

For those of you who don’t know about our robotics team, we have over 30 members who have just 8 weeks to build a 100lb robot to compete in FIRST robotics competitions.  This year’s game is to build a robot that can shoot giant tennis balls (bigger than a basketball) into an 8 foot target, as well as climb a set of bars.   Some of you may have seen them practicing in the gym!

Congratulations team 2186!

 

Attention Student Drivers!

If you have students that drive to school and park off-campus, please encourage them to NOT PARK in neighboring parking lots  – these are private business parking lots.  Westfield was notified that they WILL TOW unauthorized vehicles starting tomorrow, March 23, 2022.

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that you and your family are well and have been able to enjoy your weekend.

As you saw in my community message on Friday, it is with a sense of profound sadness that I shared the passing of one of our students. Out of a continued respect for the family, I will not be sharing any additional information at this time. However, I urge you to connect with your students as they work through their own feelings. Please know that we will have consistent support for both students and adults here in the building. Additionally, please refer to the supports in my community message on Friday to help, which included county and website resources. I also encourage you and your students to reach out to their counselors and subschools for support in whatever that may look like. 

This week leads us into Spring Break. I encourage our families and students to disconnect from school and technology. While we realize some students may have a long-term assignment due after the break, or are working to make-up assignments, no work will be due the first two full days back to school. Additionally, no major assessments will occur the first 2 calendar days back from break. Please take this time to connect as a family and recharge for the final push of the year. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Bulldog Breakdown 3/20 - 3/26

Good Evening Bulldog Families–

I hope that all families are safe and well, and have been enjoying the weekend! 

It’s definitely starting to get a Spring feel around school. The weather is starting to turn and activities are starting to pick up. Please make sure to check out the calendar portion of the Breakdown so you don’t miss events like International Night, the Musical, and athletic games almost every night. There’s a lot to get involved with here at Westfield!

As spring welcomes blossoms, students tend to re-awaken from the winter. While overwhelmingly this is an exciting time, please remind your students that there are expectations for school behavior. Particular behaviors that tend to arrive with the warm weather are: leaving campus/skipping class, tardiness to class, and inappropriate hallway behavior. Please remind your students to stay on track, just as they have been doing all year.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with observations, suggestions, questions and celebrations. You can do that through e-mail, call, or  through the form located here: https://forms.gle/4eW9rgPRVBF2a5gd8

Go Bulldogs!

Tony DiBari 

 

Westfield High School AP Exam Schedule Updates

Change in Religious and Cultural Observance Day

Eid al-Fitr will be observed by Muslims around the world this May 2nd and May 3rd. The date of Eid services/celebrations can shift due to the lunar calendar and can vary by community and country. At the time the FCPS calendar was developed, local Eid observances were expected to occur on May 3rd, but because local Eid observances shifted to May 2nd, the FCPS Employee Newsletter on February 8th announced a change in the Religious and Cultural Observance day in FCPS for Eid-al-Fitr from May 3rd to May 2nd, 2022.

 

AP Exam Schedule

After careful consideration, FCPS leadership decided to continue with the established AP exam schedule for May 2, 2022. 

Students registered for  AP exams on May 2nd (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, US Government) will need to request late testing if they are unable to attend due to the Eid religious observance. 

May 3rd exams that were previously rescheduled for May 17th will remain on May 17th (AP Psychology and AP Environmental Science). 

Requesting a late AP Exam due to May 2nd Eid Observance

Students who are unable to attend May 2nd AP exams (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, or US Government) due to the Eid religious observance need to contact Westfield’s AP Testing Coordinators no later than April 22nd to request late testing. Late testing follows the College Board Late Testing Schedule. The dates and times for the May 2nd late testing are listed in the table below.

Dates: 

April 29 & 30

May 1, 6 & 7

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

WeStep

In the past, we have held a program for graduating Seniors called WeStep. For those new to Westfield, WeStep has been a nine-day, 60-hour internship that students can participate in at local businesses, schools, and community service organizations, and is usually held the last 2 weeks of May (depending on graduation date). This experience benefits students in numerous ways and provides them with a tangible experience as they exit high school, allowing them to put academic and career interests in action in a non-academic setting. 

There will be a longer interest/overview meeting for those students who are interested.  Information will also be posted on Schoology and given to seniors this week through advisory. Additionally, we will be reaching out with a process for community members who feel that they can help provide experiences for students through internship, volunteering, or other opportunities. 

 

 

International Night

Bulldog Family!! Westfield will be hosting their annual International Night on Thursday, March 24th from 6PM to 8PM. It will be an exciting event as you will get to learn about the different cultures and ethnicities amongst the students. We will have booths in the cafeteria where people will share information about their country and food will be available. There will also be a Kahoot followed by a fashion show and performances in the auditorium! Bring your friends and family to learn more about your peers!

If your student has concerns regarding this new policy, please have them reach out to their Subschool principal or counselor for support. This was just another shining example of how great our community is!  

This week we celebrate National School Social Worker’s Week. We are extremely fortunate to have Ms. Lori Klein and Ms. Brittany Lee as such great resources for our community. The provide extremely important services and we are grateful to have them!
