The Kern High School District is excited to welcome back our students and staff for the 2021-2022 school year. Our school campuses will return to full, in-person instruction on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.
Tryouts/practice will start on Monday August 2nd. Paperwork and physicals need to be completed before you can start practicing. 10 practices must be done before you can play. First competition is Friday August 13th. Contact Coach Urata by email as soon as possible for further information and announcements.
On May 27, 2021 from 1 pm to 5:30 pm, Kern County Public Health and Kern Medical Center will utilize the West High School Cafeteria to provide vaccinations for the community. Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to any community member ages 12 and up. All parties must pre-register prior to vaccination being administered.
We are excited to announce the re-opening for in-person instruction for all of our West High School (WHS) students. Parents/Guardians have the option to send their child to in-person instruction or keep their child in the current distance learning format. Students who return to in-person instruction will be able to attend all of their classes. WHS will follow all appropriate safety guidelines. All staff and students will be required to wear face coverings and follow 3-foot social distancing requirements. Students and staff will be required to participate in temperature checks; hand sanitizing stations and hand sanitizer will be available on campus and water fountains will remain closed. Students will be provided lunch as they exit campus at 1:00 pm daily. The West High School COVID-19 Site Specific Plan is located on our website at west.kernhigh.org for your review. Students who remain in the distance learning format will continue to log into their classes just as they are doing now.
