Visit Woodside Elementary School and the first thing you will notice is the warm, friendly nurturing environment that comes from staff and students. While it appears to be physically big, the school feels small and family-oriented because everyone cares, learns and grows together here. Our students understand our vision and live it in a kind and compassionate way each day. A strong academic foundation that stretches student learning coupled with well-rounded experiences prepares students to be productive future citizens and leaders.

Proper attire required for playing in snow
A reminder to families that as the temperature continues to drop, students are required to wear winter coats, hats, and mittens or gloves. In addition, boots and snow pants are required to play in snow. Thank you for your cooperation.
Visitor Management System in place
Woodside Elementary School is pleased to announce that we are using the Raptor Visitor Management System. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will permit us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.
Upon entering Woodside during the school day, parents and visitors will be asked to present an ID such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date and the purpose of his or her visit. A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit school simply to drop off an item at the desk near the cafeteria entrance.
As always the safety of our students is our highest priority, and the Raptor visitor management system will better ensure a safe and secure environment at school. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.
