Anaverde Hills

Good Afternoon Westside Union School District Families. This is Shannon Rossall-Bennett, Principal at Anaverde Hills School, with an important announcement regarding a return to school for the 4th quarter. Your student is currently enrolled in a hybrid program at Anaverde Hills School, meaning he/she should return to campus when it is cleared to reopen. LA County has now entered the Red Tier, and we are working to get our school reopened for some "in-person" instruction. You can find the survey in an email message accompanying this dialer message or on the front page of our school website. Please complete the survey by Thursday, March 18, 2021 by 3:00 pm. Thank you.

In this summary:

Westside USD Reopening plans awaiting approval. Available on District and School Websites.

The TK-6th grade students in mild/moderate special day classes will return February 16th and the TK/K cohorts will return on February 22nd.  

Parents will receive information about the new system for daily check-in which is currently required.  You will find information about that system and directions for using it on the website.  You will also find a video to help you with setting up the system either on your phone or on another device.

Some additional changes that have been made to facilitate reopening schools include the addition of 654 GPS ionizers to all HVAC units district-wide.  These ionizers kill 99% of all germs, bacteria, and viruses, and are Underwriter’s Laboratories certified to deliver clean indoor air that is safe and healthy.

Monday, February 15th is Presidents Day.  Our schools will be closed for that day.
