News & Announcements

Principal News

The next two weeks will be exciting ones for West High.  Here are the upcoming important dates:


       Friday, February 28th:  School dismissed at 11:45 (busses will run at this time).

       Tuesday, March 3rd:     11th grade only ACT.  Please have students arrive on-time and bring ID.

       Thursday, March 5th:    Parent Teacher Conferences 4pm-7pm

       Friday, March 6th:         No school, teacher work day.


As we work on improving our campus safety, we ask all students arriving late to school to check-in at the Office of Student Services in the main hallway.  We are continuing our tardy sweeps with the purpose of having students in class on-time.  We are now looking at parking lot safety.  We ask that students park only in designated spaces with their West parking sticker.  We will begin parking lot enforcement soon.  


Additionally, during the first week in March, West High School will undergo our accreditation visit and we are excited to share the ways that we work together to serve your students.  Thank you to the parents and students who will join the focus groups during that time.  


Also, please arrange the schedules for your juniors (11th) grade to be present and on-time for the ACT test.  This is paid for by the state of Utah and counts for college entrance.  It also is one of the ways that West High is measured by the state of Utah, and only this offering of the ACT helps West High School.
