The mission of West Hills High School is to graduate critical thinkers and problem-solvers who contribute positively to society as productive, responsible citizens.
Mrs. Robin Ballarin
Welcome to the last week of school. What an historic moment in time we are all experiencing!
Thank you to all our students, parents, guardians, faculty and staff for being patient,
kind, and understanding we are all doing our best to provide for students
in this pandemic. We are truly grateful for your support now and
always as we partner together to education all of our students.
This end of year letter provides more thanks and a calendar
for the start of next year. May good health,
kindness, and grace continue to be our
words to live by in the coming
Dear families and students:
Your input is important to our district. Last week you received an invitation to participate in a short survey crafted by GUHSD in partnership with Bright Bytes. This is your opportunity to give valuable input on our Instructional Technology initiatives and your Distance Learning experience. Your responses will help inform our future programs, trainings, and decisions surrounding technology and learning. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what YOU think about technology and learning in the GUHSD.
This is the final week of school with the last day of school / work accepted on
Thursday, June 4. THANK YOU to all parents / guardians and students for returning your instructional materials checked out to you! We are very grateful so we can sanitize them and return them to storage for use in the Fall.
You can still turn in items / pick up PE locker items Monday, June 8 from 11-2:30 p.m.
If you have a Senior, please see this Senior Events Guide for lots of information.
Senior Breakfast at Chik-Fil-A....thank you to all who came to cheer on the Seniors!

|About 200 Seniors turned out for drive through breakfast|
Many decorated their cars and were smiling as they got to sit and eat with their peers.
Monday, May 25 we had no school. Thank you to all our military service members and their families, active, reserve and retired, who have served our country. We so appreciate you and your service!

GRADES / CREDITS / SUMMER SCHOOL: Please review GRADES online in our Parent Portal. There is still time for students and parents to talk with teaches and improve grades if needed. Any student with an "F" at the semester's end or on their transcript does need to re-take the course for credit. A student needs 220 credits to graduate. These credit requirements are on our website under "Counseling". Summer School is entirely online this year and is scheduled June 08-June 26. Students have already been enrolled in summer school and know through their Counselor what course they are enrolled in. Please look in your email and Infinite Campus portal for more information in the next few weeks as we send out reminders and messages. Any student who is a current Senior (needing only one course to graduate), or a junior going into Senior year have priority in summer school due to limited space. Current Sophomores and Freshman have been scheduled as well as space allows. Please do not plan to have your student miss any of the 15 days of summer school. There are so few days--each summer school day is equal to one week of a traditional semester. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. April Baker firstname.lastname@example.org or at 619-956-0420, or the counselor for your student.
As we take a break for summer, we wanted to remind everyone, no matter if we
are on campus or in distance learning,
always believe we will continue to learn and grow...together!
We are One, We are the Pack!
