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!
