You'll find it under the "Parents" tab.

Supply Lists, Uniform Guidelines, Academic Calendar & More

The "Parents" tab on the WCA website, WCALions.org, is the central place to find much of the information you'll need to get the school year started smoothly.  In addition to class supply lists, WCA academic calendar, summer reading and course requirements, you'll find the current student handbook and uniform guidelines.  

Upper School Technology

Westminster requires all 8th through 12th grade students to have a personal laptop each day.  The goal is to give students the opportunity to learn how to utilize technology appropriately and effectively while enhancing their education experience.  Please follow this link to learn more and access upper school technology requirements.

WCA Traffic Circle ~ It's a busy place.

The WCA traffic circle is a very busy place during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.  It's important that we all follow WCA guidelines to ensure the safety of our students and parents.  

Please remember and abide by the following:

  • Always drive slowly when entering and exiting the traffic circle.
  • Drivers should not have phones in their hands.
  • Pull all the way around the circle as directed by the safety patrol.
  • At no time should parents exit their vehicles.
  • Students should exit from the right side of their vehicle.
  • Avoid having elementary aged children retrieve items from the back of the vehicle where they might not be easily seen by someone in a larger vehicle.  Please have your students things with them in the vehicle.

Thank you for your help to ensure the traffic circle is a safe place for all students and parents!
