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

Superintendent's Message

September 2021

Dear Whittier Union High School Community, superintendent

Whittier Union has seen a promising start to the new school year, and I am thrilled to highlight the events and activities taking place across the District that are bringing our students, teachers and staff together again.
Our students have transitioned fully back into in-person instruction, and our schools are bustling with excitement with the return of back-to-school assemblies and homecoming festivities.
I would like to thank our certificated and classified staff members for continuing to put our students first, ensuring they have access to opportunities that more closely resemble a traditional school year – while still following protocols that support their health and safety.
Whittier Union remains committed to the health of our students, teachers, staff and families and to support us in this effort, we have launched weekly vaccination clinics in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Our weekly clinics are held every Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the District Board Room. Walk-ins are welcome, but we encourage you to register in advance by visiting the MyTurn website.
At Whittier Union we pride ourselves in doing Whatever it Takes to keep our students safe, while supporting their health and wellness as they engage in an enriching curriculum that prepares them for life after high school. The District provides students, staff and families with a variety of resources such as individual and group counseling, parent workshops, informational videos and more. For more information, visit our tools and resources for support page on the District website.
As the season begins to change and we transition into fall, I encourage you all to remain vigilant in keeping yourself and your loved ones healthy and safe. I look forward to highlighting the successes of our students and staff as they continue to embrace our motto, “To Achieve and Maintain Excellence.”
