Wolf Call Weekly


Welcome to this week!


We hope this message finds you well and that your school year is off to a good start!

In an effort to continue improving communication to our families and community of West Hills High School, we are using a new format of our daily bulletin which includes weekly, informative messages and announcements. Students and families will still receive messages from the school with specific announcements, things to remember, and highlights of which to be aware of. The West Hills website will include a page that will host current and previous reports as a resource. (Info, Wolf Call Weekly) We encourage your participation as an active reader of these communications that will help bridge our communication between WHHS and Students & Families. Thank you for your continued support for all students at West Hills!

WHHS Administration,

Robin Ballarin, Principal

Joshua Johnson, Assistant Principal (A-G)

Carrie Gaeir, Assistant Principal (H-O)

John Hoadley, Assistant Principal (P-Z)

New Lunch Boundaries

Hey Pack! Have you seen the new blue paw prints around campus?? Students have designated areas during lunch. Students must stay inside of the boundaries marked by the blue paw prints during lunch (see out-of-bounds map). Students are not permitted to go to the parking lot during lunch unless they are leaving for the day or have prior approved permission.

Also, trash cans are provided for your use so PLEASE KEEP OUR CAMPUS CLEAN by placing all trash in the cans!

What a first week of the 2021-22 School Year!

We made it! THANK YOU students for your patience and participation with our 1st week back! We had not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 Assemblies this past week to welcome each grade level Class (Grade 9 had their extended HOWL day on Aug. 5) culminating in our whole school assembly on the football field on Friday with our inaugural "Running of the Pack." We THANK YOU for your patience as we moved the schedule last minute to avoid the hottest part of the day and switched things up on Friday. We are following up with students with a short survey regarding how they felt about the whole week. Check out the pictures and the video below.
