With tomorrow’s forecast indicating the possibility of severe weather, we wanted to remind you of our severe weather plan. As always, we monitor weather situations via the National Weather Service forecast and make decisions about school operations based on the forecast data and recommendations from the Houston County Emergency Management Agency (EMA). As of right now, there has been no recommendation from the EMA for school closure tomorrow; therefore, we plan to be open. We will continue to monitor the weather and will let you know if the forecast should worsen and a decision to close is made.

Our main concern with severe weather is safe transportation to and from our campus. If we feel that students, faculty, and staff can travel safely to/from campus based on the weather forecast, then school will remain open. If you feel that it is not safe for your children to travel, please keep them at home. School closures due to weather will be announced via text messaging/email through our Veracross system as well as posts to our school social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).

Please be reminded that our safety plan states that all students will remain indoors when lightning is within close vicinity to our campus. This plan applies to the time of dismissal as we do not want students, faculty, and staff exposed to lightning. If you choose, you may park and come to the classroom to pick up your children and escort them to the car at your own risk.

The safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors is a priority for our school leadership. Our school resource officer, Deputy Chris Snipes, is working with us on our safety plan and serves as our liaison with the Houston County EMA. We continue to update and revise our safety plan, including our severe weather plan as needed, and we appreciate your support and understanding.


Please mark your calendar for a school holiday on Monday, January 15th, as our campus will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 16th.

Tomorrow's JV and varsity basketball games at The Heritage School have been postponed due to expected weather and travel conditions. The games will be played at Heritage on Saturday, February 10th - JV girls at 1 pm, JV boys at 2 pm, varsity girls at 3 pm, and varsity boys at 4:30 pm. #westfieldbasketball

Westfield's 11th annual RED OUT, sponsored by the Senior Beta Club, will be held Friday, January 19th. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear red to school and also, along with families and fans, to the basketball games that night in the Hornets' Nest.

Westfield's Red Out began in 2013 to honor Tucker Moody ‘15, then a Westfield sophomore, who collapsed while playing varsity basketball due to a congenital heart defect. Tucker underwent open heart surgery, fully recovered, and graduated from Westfield and Auburn University. Organized by Westfield’s Beta Club, Westfield’s Red Out has raised over $25,000 for the American Heart Association.

The Spirit Shop is selling Red Out t-shirts (comfort colors brand). Click on the button below to order. Proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association.




We are accepting admissions applications for new students for the 2024-2025 school year. If you have a child (especially one who will be in Pre-K or Kindergarten next year) whom you are interested in enrolling as a new student at Westfield for the upcoming school year beginning in August, please contact our Admissions Office or click here to begin the admissions application process online. Information for re-enrollment of current students for the next school year will be distributed in early February.

Thank you to Mrs. Lauren Norman, Westfield parent and children's minister at The Grove Church, for speaking to our Lower School students for our "Faithful Friday" assembly. Mrs. Norman shared Galatians 2:20 and talked with students about living Christ-filled lives. She challenged students to ask themselves what is filling up their lives and are they seeking and loving Jesus. We are thankful for these opportunities for our students to hear God's Word! #educationofmindandheart #FaithfulFriday #LowerSchoolAssembly
