Hello Westmont High School Parents and Students:

We will hold our virtual Back to School Open House on Wednesday, September 2 starting at 6:30 p.m.  I will make a live, brief (20 minutes) presentation with updates on remote learning and the incredible academic and learning success at Westmont High School. The Zoom link for this meeting will be sent out next Wednesday morning (September 2nd).

You will also have access to short presentations and information from all teachers on a website named Padlet.  We will also send out this link next Wednesday, September 2nd. This website will serve as a virtual open house where teachers will provide information on the upcoming school year. You can log on to this website and learn more about each of your student’s teachers and their classes. You will enjoy the information and many teachers have produced short video introductions.
