Cougar Parents, 


One topic that has come up repeatedly in parent forums has been the need to focus on school safety. In an effort to ensure that West Side Leadership Academy is a safe environment that is conducive for learning, we will be implementing security checks at random, the first of which took place today. Please assist us in school safety by talking with children early and regularly about gangs, drugs, weapons, school and community safety, and related concerns. Also, please be sure to be familiar with our district student handbook.
