How to Stay Informed

There are a number of ways to stay informed regarding your child’s education. Information comes from a variety of sources including the school, your child’s classroom, the community and the school district. Read more to find out how you stay in touch with each source.   Don’t have regular access to computer or email?

Please feel free to let your child’s teacher and Marty Phelps know – we will be happy to have paper copies of any communication sent out via email sent home with your child! Paper copies of SNEAKS and many other forms are available in the front office. If you would like computer access, the library and computer lab computers are available for families of West Woodland students to use before and after school. There is no access to Hotmail on these computers.

Communication from West Woodland 

#1 Email is the primary way that West Woodland will share. This will include event information, Principal & PTA communication, emergency school closures & everything in between. To stay informed:
  • Provide an accurate email address on the Verification Form on TCB day
  • Do not “unsubscribe” from any of the emails, or you will be removed from the mailing list.
  • If you suspect you are not receiving these emails, contact Marty Phelps at msphelps@seattleschools.org
  • If you do not have regular access to email, visit Marty Phelps in the front office of West Woodland, or email her at: msphelps@seattleschools.org
