UPDATE:

Following Governor Newsom's July 17 announcement of a statewide school reopening directive (click here for the state's school reopening plan), Westridge has opened its 2020-2021 school year in remote learning. We also have plans and protocols in place that will allow us to shift to a hybrid approach (combination of in-person and remote learning) as soon as it is safe to do so. When this is the case, we will provide families with two weeks' notice.

Remote and hybrid learning approach:

as of July 20, 2020

Because of the work we have undertaken since the spring, we are prepared to open school remotely with a full, robust, and challenging program for our students. We do believe students, and younger students in particular, will benefit on numerous levels from being together with their peers and teachers on campus. As such, we will be prepared for on-campus learning whenever it is determined this can be accomplished safely. Accounting for our campus capacity amid physical distancing guidelines, we would put in place a hybrid learning model for students in grades 8-12 with periods of on-campus learning and periods of remote learning. At any time when we are in hybrid learning mode, students not ready to return to campus will have remote access to our full program.

Click below for an overview that provides some detail on changes to our remote learning program and an overview of health and safety protocols and our planned hybrid learning approach. It is not yet comprehensive and is subject to change, but provides insight into what students and families can expect when we are able to have students on campus. A formal overview of our Remote Learning Plan will be distributed in early August.

Preventing illness:

Public health officials recommend that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

  • Stay home when sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands.
  • Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
  • Get a flu immunization to prevent influenza if you have not done so this season.
