New Family and Returning Family Information

Starting at a new school can be overwhelming. Until you have an opportunity to explore the entire school web site, we thought we would put the most important information in one place for you.
School Hours for all Grades
7:45 am to 3:30 pm

New Family Slide Presentation
School Uniforms
Faith West uses FlynnO’Hara as our uniform supplier.
Lunch Accounts
Faith West uses a payment portal for school lunch accounts.  You can receive notices when your lunch account is low on funds and automatically post funds to your student’s account. If you do not want your child to make purchases at the school cafeteria using an account, you MUST create an account and restrict all purchases for your child. They will always be able to purchase with cash.
Block Schedule for Secondary
Junior high and senior high students have a modified block schedule.
Carpool Information
Morning drop-off begins at 7:15 and afternoon pick-up begins at 3:30.
Student Handbooks
Extended Care Information
If your child requires care before or after normal school hours, you can sign up for the Extended Care program. Care is available from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm.
