Principal's Message

Dear West TV families,

I hope your summer has been full of delightful adventures!

With the news shared yesterday by the district regarding the start of school, there will not be a survey sent to families in early August as originally anticipated since the only option for all students this fall is online school - either Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) at West TV or with FLEX Online School.

I anticipate there will be a survey sent to families as we get closer to November.

The district has extended the deadline to enroll in FLEX Online School to July 31st. Below is a document that outlines the differences between CDL and FLEX - in both English and Spanish.

Here are the staff that are expected to be at West TV this school year; however, please know that staffing changes can still occur before school begins but it is not likely. At this time there will be 2 classes in each grade (Kindergarten through 5th) with between 25 to 27 students per class.
