News for the Week of September 26-30
Posted 9/25/22

Good evening Welby Way families,


It was wonderful to see so many families at our first movie night of the school year on Friday.  Thank you to our dedicated POWW and many volunteers who worked together to help make this a successful event and evening together for all families.


REMINDER:  There is no school on Monday, Sept. 26th as it is an unassigned day. School will resume with regular Tuesday, 1:30 pm dismissal the following day.


COVID Updates:  I am happy to share that we only had 0 on campus positive COVID cases this week and only 2 from students who were never on campus and there were no close contacts.     If your child tests positive, please be sure to label the test with your child’s first and last name, date of birth, school, POSITIVE, and date of the test and upload it to your child’s Daily Pass.   Also, please be sure to email me ( and your child’s teacher regarding the positive results so I can assist you with the safe return to school timeline.  Please remember if your child exhibits any flu like symptoms please keep your child home and test them prior to returning to school to ensure they are negative.


Coffee with the Principal:  Please join me on Wednesday at 8:30 am for Coffee with the Principal in the auditorium.  I will be discussing the Superintendent's Strategic Plan as we work together to create children who are "Ready for the World." I will also be providing an update regarding the district's Acceleration Days.   There will be an evening zoom session offered at 6:00 pm to review the same information.   Zoom information is below.  I look forward to seeing you at one of the meetings.

Toys, Pokemon Cards, and Phones at School:  Please remember as part of the Welby Way and district policy, students are not permitted to bring toys and Pokemon cards to school.  This also applies to the after school YS and child care program.  Any toys or cards that are brought to school will be taken away and must be picked up in the office by a parent.  Also, students must keep their cell phone off during the instructional day and before school.  Phones will only be permitted during YS with the permission of Coach Joseph and to contact a parent.   Thank you for your support and assistance with this.


Upcoming School Tours:  If you know of any wonderful families that would like to attend Welby Way, we will be hosting upcoming Magnet and Charter tours.  Dates are posted on the Welby website and start on Thursday, Sept. 29th for Magnet and Oct. 7th for Charter at 8:30 am.   Be sure to spread the word.  


POWW Baskin-Robbins:  This Thursday POWW is hosting a fundraiser at the West Hills Baskin-Robbins in Platt Village.  The weather is supposed to warm up this week and this is a perfect way to stay cool after school or for dessert while supporting Welby Way.


I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend and holiday for those who celebrate.  Please be well and thank you for your partnership as we work together to do what is best for the Welby Way students.   This is all for now.


Your Welby Way Principal,

Mrs. DaCorsi
