See Something, Say Something
Hello Wolf Pack Families and students:
Just a reminder of the English classroom presentations our Principal and Assistant Principals gave first semester regarding behaving according to the West Hills Way and being respectful, responsible and honorable.
THANK YOU to everyone who does the right thing each and every day! We are so proud of our students, parents, faculty and staff who ALL make West Hills a great place to work and learn!
We wanted to remind everyone we welcome the opportunity to support each student in every way. If you notice anyone acting in a damaging or unsafe manner, please follow one of our ¨See something, Say Something¨ protocols to report to get help. These include:
(1) Tell an adult immediately what you see or are concerned by. They will help you.
(2) Send an email to your counselor or site administrator. We want to help you and know sometimes an email is best.
(3) Walk into the Admin office and ask to talk with an administrator.
(4) Walk into the Counseling office and ask to talk with a counselor.
(5) Call the Assistant Principal's office and make a report: 619-956-0424 or 619-956-0425.
(6) Use the P3 App and report anonymously. In the google toolbar in student Chromebooks, they will see this icon to the left (P3) which is an anonymous tip line. If students click on this icon in their tool bar, it takes them to a new window where they can report problems on campus with theft, vandalism, or other possible criminal acts, or simply let us know there is a concern about a person in our school community or their world.
Thank you for helping us keep our campus safe, clean and operational. We are "ALL IN" together!
Loss of Privilege Policy
Loss of Privilege (LOP) List: This exists to support the idea that our primary function is “Academics First” and that student behaviors and choices need to prioritize attendance and following school rules. Students may earn their way off of the LOP list through attendance at detention and / or Saturday school after talking with their Assistant Principal. They can also lose a privilege that was granted (i.e. serving Saturday School to be eligible to purchase a Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued). All students begin Semester 2 off the list. Totals from Semester 1 do not count for Semester 2.
See our Loss of Privilege Policy HERE.

Hello Wolf Pack Students and Families:
Recently our school board approved a three year calendar. For ease of reading and planning for students and families, we brought them together in one document for you. If you could please plan your family time around our announced Summer, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks, this would help your student stay on top of classroom instruction and learning. We know this is not always possible, but we just wanted to share this for possible advance planning.
Multi-year Calendar for Students and Parents: 2022-23; 2023-24; 2024-25.
Thank you....let's go Wolf Pack!
