West Hills is planning to offer ONE four week session of Summer School.
The tentative dates are June 6 - June 30.
Students will have the opportunity to be enrolled in 1 or 2 courses depending on the level of courses needed.
Period 1 is 7:30am-11:00am

In order to inform our Summer School plans, we are asking our West Hills parents and guardians to complete this survey. The survey only needs to be completed if your student earned an "F"/failed a course that is needed for graduation or a grade of “D” that must be retaken for 4 year college admissions.
We will NOT have any home, online learning options. PLEASE NOTE: Completion of this form does not guarantee Summer School enrollment.

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!
