The Staples High School community inspires learning, fosters integrity, and nurtures empathy.

Important Update:

The Westport Public Schools and Staples Guidance Office will be closed until further notice due to community health concerns. We will, however, continue to provide resources and services remotely as best we can in order to support our students, families, and other stakeholders. If you have a question or concern, follow this link to a google form and a member of our staff will respond as soon as we are able. As always, in the case of a true emergency or risk to someone's safety, you must call 211 or 911. 

Be well & stay healthy. Together, we'll get through this challenging time.
