Westville School District will be closed Tuesday February 16 due to inclement weather. There will be no remote learning and food distribution for remote learners will move to Thursday February 18.
On January 22 the governor and state health officials provided updated guidance that will allow for more sports opportunities to start moving forward for Illinois schools. Currently the district has a plan for extra-curricular sports that is posted on our district website at www.gowestville.org. Next week the governing bodies for junior high and high school sports each have a board of directors meeting on Wednesday January 27. After the IESA and IHSA board of directors meetings, the district may update plans in accordance to any decisions that are made. In the meantime the district will proceed with the plans that have been laid out until more is known. Right now we want to wait until those meetings happen before we tweak any of our current plans. After their meeting hopefully we will have a better understanding of the real impact for our school sports. In general, it is all very encouraging for increased opportunities this spring and we will provide updated information and plans as soon as we know more.
Thank you to all the volunteers and donors who support Santas Anonymous - Christmas will be a little more special for our students because of your efforts. #tistheseasonfirgiving

The IESA, which governs elementary and junior high sports, has made a decision to cancel junior high baseball and softball for this fall. At this time all junior sports activities for the district will be suspended until more decisions are made about junior high and elementary sports potentially occurring later in the school year. This temporary suspension will apply to summer activities for junior and elementary students at Westviille, but will NOT impact high school activities at this point. Incoming freshmen may continue to participate in scheduled high school activities. We understand the disappointment this will create for our students and families and will continue to seek safe solutions in the future. Thank you for your support of Westville Schools.
All softball activities for the upcoming week July 20-24 have been cancelled.. All other activities are still set to continue as scheduled.
