Pursuant to Executive Order No. 202.4 signed by the Honorable Andrew Cuomo, Governor of the State of New York, "every school in the state of New York is hereby directed to close no later than Wednesday, March 18, 2020, for a period of two weeks, ending April 1, 2020. The state shall reassess at that time whether to extend such closure beyond this date and may continue to suspend the 180 day instructional requirement."
The Westfield Day School, acting in compliance with this order, as well as the directives of the New York State Office of Nonpublic Schools with regard to continuity of education for its students, is currently holding regular instruction online as well as maintaining support services to students and parents through telecommunication.
If you have any questions regarding this temporary building closure, the current program or for admissions, please feel free to contact the school by phone, or email.

Westfield offers students a place to reflect. This reflection gives them an opportunity to figure out the best way to complete school tasks and find out who they are and how to utilize that newly found revelation.
MR. Chris Thomas, TEACHER
Teaching at Westfield Day school is truly rewarding. The therapeutic atmosphere allows for teachers to meet students where they are academically, emotionally and socially. The small group setting enables students to learn at their own pace, in their own unique way.
Mrs. Lauretta Haugh, Teacher
An advantage that Westfield offers is its small classes, its overall small physical size, and the resulting close and familiar interactions between students and staff. Westfield students are rarely, if ever, outside the orbit of a trained clinical observer, whether they are in or out of the classroom.

Westfield Day School's individualized program has truly supported my child’s needs academically, emotionally and socially. The teachers have taken the time to learn what works for him and, as a result of their caring and thoughtful nature, he has begun to embrace learning, friendships and happiness. The gentle and kind environment of the school has allowed my son to be available to learn for the first time and he feels comfortable to begin friendships with his peers. Westfield has changed our lives as my son is learning and happy.

The students' incredible support for us in a challenging time, is a fitting testimony to the great work that is being done at Westfield to develop caring young men and women.

I am with my son at college orientation right now. He has made great strides and it would not have happened without the administration and teachers of Westfield.
