Whittier Union High School District To Achieve and Maintain Excellence...

Superintendent's Message

July 2021

Dear Whittier Union High School Community, superintendent

In just a few short weeks we will begin the 2021-22 school year and welcome back our students for in-person instruction, five days a week. We are thrilled to see our students and have been working hard all summer to ensure a smooth transition back to campus for students, teachers and staff.

Whittier Union High School District is committed to providing a safe, secure learning environment for our students and staff. Our District will continue to follow guidelines from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) related to COVID-19 safety, prioritizing the health of our school communities.

As always, we will keep our families updated on COVID-19 safety protocols as they continue to evolve.

Though this school year will still feel slightly different due to certain protocols, we are confident that we are on the right track to a school year that feels more traditional – one that allows students to participate in sports year-round, theater shows, class events, school dances and more.

I encourage you all to remain vigilant in keeping yourself and your loved ones healthy and safe throughout this very fluid situation. Whittier Union will do its part to ensure our students continue to receive a high-quality education while having a memorable school year.

As we prepare for the start of school on Aug. 12, I would like to remind you all that at Whittier Union our motto is “To Achieve and Maintain Excellence,” and we have no doubt this year, we will do just that.

See you in August!
