Dear Blosser Lane Families and Friends, We hope you had a restful vacation and a lovely Thanksgiving. We know from experience, that these next few weeks before winter break will go by rather quickly. We have some third and fourth grade student holiday performances coming up during the week before the winter vacation; your child’s teacher will provide more details for the upcoming events. The holidays are coming up soon and we have an exciting program coming to our school! We will be hosting a Penguin Patch® Holiday Shop so that students can buy special gifts for friends and family members. It will have gifts that cost as little as $.25 and up to $12 so they will be able to find something for everyone on their list.

We will have the containers in our office until Friday, December 20th.

It is the end of the first trimester for this school year. Minimum days have been adjusted to allow for final exams and teacher grade reporting time. All schools will have minimum days on Thursday and Friday this week. Only WHS/SHS will release on Friday at 11:15 a.m.
Willits Unified Schools will not be in session tomorrow October 30. The school has planned in-services days for Thursday and Friday. So there will be no school for students on Thursday or Friday as well. The football game scheduled for Friday night will be played at its regular time if we have power, if not it will be played at 1 o’clock and 3:30 on Friday afternoon.
Due to power outages Willits unified school district will be closed on Tuesday the 29th. There is a pending Wind advisory for Tuesday night that may prolong the power shut down. I will keep you posted on our status as soon as I know definite information. Stay safe and alert to changing conditions.
Due to power outages there will be no school for Willits Unified on Monday the 28th. I will post again Monday afternoon to let everybody know our status for Tuesday.
This is a reminder for Monday morning. If you do not have power at home you can assume that the school does not have power either and we will be closed. I will keep you posted on the power situation at our school as time goes on.
All of the Willits schools have power and will be open today.
Good Evening. Please be advised that there is a chance of a power outage in the Willits area scheduled for tomorrow October 9th. If you have power at your residence tomorrow morning, assume that school will be in session during regular scheduled hours. If you do not have power at your residence tomorrow morning, assume school will be canceled. In the event of a power outage during the day, school will continue to be operational until the end of the school day. We will continue to update you as we receive further information. Mr. Westerburg
Just a reminder to please have your child turn in their technology user agreement form as soon as possible. Please check your child's backpack. Many of our dynamic educational tools are technology based. If you have any questions regarding these tools please contact your child's teacher. Have a great weekend!
If you are going to volunteer with WUSD this year you need to have your fingerprints done. The company Print Your Mitts, will be at Brookside Elementary Open House on Thursday at 6 PM until 8. WUSD has a form that the DOJ charges us $32 for us to have processed and Mitt Your Mitts will charge you $30 for their service. If your interested please have 2 checks available to use. We greatly appreciate our volunteers. We don't have any choice on the rules or cost. I would get there early, last year there was a line.
Reminder: All WUSD schools are on regular schedule today. Our first minimum day of the school year will be next Tuesday, August 27th.
