Welcome from the Principal

  • Happy Summer! 

    Thank you for ending the school year with us!  We hope you have an enjoyable summer.  

    We will be having a Back to School Open House on August 29th from 2:00-4:00. This will be an open house for parents and students to put supplies away in classrooms, meet the staff, and ease the jitters before the first day of school on August 30th

    Something I feel passionately about is students receiving a stellar education. I can assure you that our team at West will work tirelessly to provide your students with a safe place to learn. I pride myself on being understanding, so please don’t hesitate to call me for any reason. My email address is lyndsey_stulc@gfps.k12.mt.us and phone number is 268-7180.

    I would like to encourage our families to commit to regular attendance at school this year. In order for us to tackle gaps in education that we experienced through the pandemic, daily attendance is crucial. We will be awarding perfect attendance often throughout the year at our assemblies. We will also be continuing our monthly attendance parties. Medical appointments are excused from missing the parties if a doctor’s note is provided.

    Just a reminder that school starts daily at 8:25 am, and dismisses at 3:20 pm. Wednesday dismissal is at 2:45 pm. Students may not be dropped off prior to 8:10 am, as there will not be playground supervision. 

    On the first day of school, students will gather on the playground at 8:10, and the bell will ring at 8:25. All students will line up with their teachers and enter the building. Only Kindergarten parents will be permitted to escort their students into the building on the first day. Parents may escort their children to the playground before school during the first week of school only.
