Welcome

The Westbrook Public Schools believe that the opportunity for participation in a variety of athletic activities is a vital part of the student-athletes educational experience which is consistent with and contributes to the basic mission of the school. The interscholastic athletic program contributes much to the total education of the student-athlete who participates. A proper well-organized sports program must strive to develop the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the student-athlete by providing the opportunity to develop values and attitudes that will be of benefit in later life. He/she will learn about physical fitness, self-discipline, pursuit of a goal, and respect for others. The student-athlete will strive to succeed in competition and learn how to accept the results of their best efforts.

Westbrook Public Schools: EEE Outdoor after school activities update

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

On behalf of the Superintendent of Schools we are updating our school district community this afternoon about our adjusted schedule for after school activities to ensure we are actively engaging in the safety precautions provided by the Department of Public Health as it relates to mosquito exposure and the equine encephalitis (EEE) virus.

All athletics events outdoors after school today and moving forward will be starting at their regularly scheduled time with the end times adjusted to insure they are completed before dusk.

This is in keeping with the Connecticut Department of Public Health guidelines previously shared.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health today is urging residents to continue personal preventive measures to avoid mosquito bites and reduce the chance of contracting eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus. Residents are advised to protect themselves and their children by minimizing outdoor activity from dusk to dawn, when mosquitoes are most active. The mosquitoes that carry the virus are active until the first heavy frost.

Congratulations to the Westbrook HS Athletic Department, Athletic Trainer Caty Halpin, our Sports Medicine team, coaches and student-athletes!!!!

Westbrook High School (Westbrook, CT) has been named a Safe Sports School 1st Team for a three-year period, valid from 2018, through 2021 by NATA - the National Athletic Trainers Association!
