Keeping Our Schools Open

As we prepare for the start of the 2021-2022 school year, the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and families remain at the forefront of our work. In spite of COVID-19's continued presence of in our community, we believe we share a common goal to limit disruptions to student learning as much as possible, while maintaining the health and safety of our students, staff, and visitors. To that end, we have several protocols in place to keep our buildings safe, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to assist us in keeping our schools open five days a week for in-person instruction. Many of these measures will sound familiar as they were utilized last school year and have proven to be successful.  Please click the "Keeping Our Schools Open 2021-2022 - FAQs" link below for more details.

2021 PSSA Results

Official student results have been delayed due the extended window offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for school districts to administer the PSSA tests. While West Shore opted to take them in the spring because we felt the results would better assess student learning during the 2020-2021 school year, some districts in Pennsylvania chose to wait until after summer break and give students the PSSAs in the fall. As a result, we have been told not to expect results which we can share with our families until the week of November 15, 2021. Once we have those, staff will mail them to families via the US Postal Service.
