At-Home Learning Experiences for West Hills 3/30/2020-4/3/2020

Given the ever changing backdrop, our hopes for all our families remain focused on wellness first. Part of wellness is establishing as much normalcy as possible. Today marks our third iteration of at-home learning opportunities. The templates below provide learning experiences for March 30, 2020 through April 3, 2020, and they include all subject areas along with important social and emotional opportunities. These templates will continue to serve as a launch that allows for all subjects to be accessed in one place.

Be on the lookout next Friday, April 3, for new information as we continue to improve our practices and processes of a continuous learning plan should we need to continue to provide learning experiences for our students after spring break.  

Timeline for Grade Level At-Home Learning Content Sharing during Scheduled Closure

  • At present, Spring Break remains scheduled for the week of April 6 - April 10
  • If needed, administrators will share the updated at-home learning plans with our families the afternoon of Friday, April 3 via a broadcast message for the week of April 13.

We continue to be grateful to our BHS staff who have been working collaboratively to put together these weekly learning templates for our students. Teaching and learning is supported by strong relationships, and we encourage you to reach out to your teachers should you have questions.  Additionally our staff has continued to explore technology that improves our ability to stay connected during this time, and we hope that you have enjoyed seeing your students interface with their teachers virtually. With this in mind, I have shared a video from Mr. Gignac below who would like to check in with all of you:)

As always, It’s GREAT to be a West Hills Warrior!
