March 4, 2021 Dear Westwood Families, The health and well-being of students and staff continues to be a top priority, and we have been working hard to ensure all Westwood staff who wish to get the COVID-19 vaccine are able to do so. More than 70 Westwood Community School District staff members received the second dose of the Moderna vaccine on Wednesday and are still experiencing side effects. As a consequence, we have decided to cancel all classes and close all buildings on Friday, March 5, 2021. We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation. Please be sure to share any questions with your child’s Principal. If you have questions for me, please call my office at 313-565-1900. We are all in this together! Sincerely, Stiles X. Simmons, Ed.D.
