Dear Western Hills Families,
I hope that you had an opportunity to enjoy your summer and get some rest. During this challenging time, I want to reassure you that my staff and I are working hard to ensure that your child's success remains the focus of our work. We will continue to exhibit passion, enthusiasm, and offer a variety of support to your child. During the remote learning time and when students return to school, my staff and I will work hard to meet your child's social, emotional, and educational needs.
I want to share important updates regarding the start of school and student and parent orientations, which will take place the week of August 24. We know it's essential for us to start the year off strong, and ensure that your child has access to technology, materials, and textbooks needed to be successful during distance learning.
