Today, Pickaway County became a “RED” county due to an increased number of active COVID-19 cases in the county. I want to remind you that, instead of changing our means of delivering education to our students as our county alert level changes, we will examine the data within each of our school buildings in order to make changes. We will not move directly to a hybrid model automatically. Currently, Westfall has two positive cases at Westfall Elementary and three positive cases at the high school. These cases were identified yesterday and anyone needing to be quarantined has been notified. We have had very few positive cases since we resumed five-day-a-week classes. We will continue to monitor cases within Westfall Local Schools and exercise thorough safety measures. Jeff Sheets Superintendent

I am so thankful for the Westfall community. Your approval of the bond issue, allowing us to greatly improve our facilities, will benefit Westfall students for years to come. The impact that you have made on this community is immeasurable! I am thankful to the Board of Education for their vision! The bond issue committee, Community for Westfall Schools, worked so hard to make this happen by getting the positive message out to our constituents. Their tireless efforts were amazing to me, as was the financial support that many donors gave to this endeavor. Because of your support, great things are going to happen at Westfall! Go Mustangs! Jeff Sheets

During National School Lunch Week, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our school nutrition professionals. Now more than ever, their efforts have been vital to ensuring children get the nutrition they need. Recently, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending flexibilities to allow free breakfast and lunch to continue to be available to all Westfall students through June 2021. This unprecedented move is part of USDA's unwavering commitment to ensuring all children across America have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
REMINDER: Tomorrow, October 1st, all students return to school for the beginning of five-day-a-week, in-person instruction! We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
