  • 72nd and Raleigh Bridge Replacement Project

    As you may be aware, the city of Westminster has begun work to replace the bridge at 72nd and Raleigh Street that runs over Little Dry Creek. It is a high-priority project for the city that will ultimately lead to a safer and more attractive intersection. Over the next year, however, it will have a fairly significant impact on traffic patterns into and out of Westminster High School.

  • Shaw Heights Fights Cancer

    The winter break was chilly for all of us, but especially for a group of Shaw Heights teachers and students, who bared their heads for a very good cause.

    On the Friday before Winter Break, Shaw Heights Middle School raised about $350 for the fight against cancer by shaving their heads and cutting their hair in solidarity with teacher Alberta Villa who is battling breast cancer and lost her hair to chemotherapy. Villa has been a literacy teacher at the school for 15 years.

  • Cold Weather

    Dear District 50 Families,

    This record cold weather has been a challenge for all of us, but we have been able to operate a normal schedule this week and plan to continue normal operations into next week, barring unforeseen circumstances.

    It is important that children are dressed appropriately for when they come to school. This is especially true for students who walk to school or wait at bus stops.

    In the event of a closure or delay, families will receive an automated phone call and email from the Communications Department. It is important that your individual school have the correct contact information.

    In addition, details will be immediately posted on the District web page as well as the District's Facebook and Twitter accounts. Local media outlets will also share information with the public.

    Please stay warm and safe.
