Warrior Walkabout: July 23 & July 29

Posted July 23

Hello Incoming 7th Grade Families!

We wanted to remind you to sign up your incoming 7th grader for the Warrior Walkabout that is happening on July 23rd and July 29th.  Sign ups close on Friday, July 17th at 4:00 pm.  See below for all the details!   This event is for students only.  Parents will be asked to remain outside during drop off and pick up!

We are excited to announce that we will have an opportunity to have our Warrior Walkabout Orientation at the end of July.  This was previously scheduled to occur last May.  It is a tremendous opportunity for incoming 7th graders to get more familiar with Westside Middle School.

To make this important transitional activity safe, we are implementing many social-distancing and de-densifying protocols.  We will have ample hand sanitizer available.   Safety of our students, their families, and our staff is always a top priority.  On the day of this event, if you are feeling any symptoms at all, please stay home and help us all stay safe.

We will be having four different sessions, two on each day, to keep our crowds smaller.  Each session will have a maximum of 130 students.  Again, you have four sessions to choose from.  See below.

Session 1:  Thursday, July 23rd 9:00-11:15 (check-in begins at 8:45)

Session 2:  Thursday, July 23rd 1:00-3:15 (check-in begins at 12:45).

Session 3:  Wednesday, July 29th 9:00-11:15 (check-in begins at 8:45)

Session 4:  Wednesday, July 29th 1:00-3:15 (check-in begins at 12:45).

Students will have an opportunity to go through 4 rotations:

Rotation 1 Q&A with panel of incoming 9th graders
Rotation 2 Building Expectations with Deans
Rotation 3 Building Tour
Rotation 4 Locker Practice


All students and staff will be required to wear a mask during the Warrior Walkabout!   Students will be asked to leave all other belongings at home.  Students will only be allowed to attend the day/time for which they sign up.  This event is for the student only.
