New Tardy/Truancy Procedures
West High Admin and Youth Advocates have a new program with tardy and truancy. They will be hand writing Truancy/Admit Tickets for all students who are lingering in the hallways after the late bell. These students will also have to serve a 15-minute detention. If students have a free period, Home Release class, and/or a Red Card, they should either be in the Library or off campus. If they are on campus and wandering, they will receive a Truancy Ticket and have 15-minutes of detention. Students, you need to be in class when the bell rings so that we can teach you, which is the purpose of this institution. Students must never leave a class early or leave a classroom for a break without a hall pass or you will receive a Truancy Ticket. Thanks for everyone's consistency and help with this!!

The West Debate Team competed at the annual Utah Debate Coaches Association tournament and won first place overall. Every major school in Utah Debate was represented, so as a team victory this was very significant. West's victory includes many notable efforts by individual debaters. Policy teams Tristan Blot & Kenji Aoki, Kiyan Banuri & Griffin Zody, and Matthew Kim & Jane Galian each won first place in the varsity, JV, and novice divisions respectively. Their combined effort earned them first place overall in policy debate.In Lincoln-Douglas debate, Michael Tao won first in the varsity division, Kenneth Nelson was a semifinalist, and Marchello Alvarez was a quarterfinalist. West's victory was only one point ahead of a very talented Logan team, so every effort was needed to make this happen. Congrats to all West debaters who contributed to this result.
