Wolf Call Weekly
Welcome to this week!
HELLO WOLF PACK STUDENTS AND FAMILIES,
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!

The mission of West Hills High School is to graduate critical thinkers and problem-solvers who contribute positively to society as productive, responsible citizens.
¨START WITH HELLO" WEEK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SANDY HOOK PROMISE ORGANIZATION
Anonymous Tip Line
Last week, we sent an email regarding the Tik Tok challenge encouraging students to steal and / or do damage to school property, specifically our restrooms and encouraged students that if they ¨See something, Say Something¨. We want to let students and parents know that in the google toolbar in student Chromebooks, they will see this icon (pictured to the left), (P3) which is an anonymous tip line.
If students click on this icon in their toolbar, 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. This tip line then alerts both law enforcement and educational staff so we can pursue this information and investigate. It is anonymous and can be done from the privacy of the student's Chromebook.
Thank you for helping us keep our campus safe, clean and operational. We are "ALL IN" together!
