Letter from the Principal

Welcome to Charter West 2021-2022 School Year!

Steve Myers, Principal

Greetings Everyone,

Charter West is excited about the start of a new school year that begins this coming Monday August 16th, 2021. Students will be on campus during their assigned session either 7:30AM until 11:30 AM or from 12:00PM until 4:00PM Monday through Friday.

Students and Staff are encouraged to get fully vaccinated for COVID 19 but it is not required. All students and staff are welcome to wear a face mask as they see fit but a mask is not required. Detailed COVID 19 information can be found on the document accompanying this letter. If your student has tested positive for COVID 19 please follow all CDC and your doctors’ guidelines for quarantining before returning to campus. As always if your child feels ill do not send them to school but please make sure you contact us to report the absence for health reasons each day they will be out.

We will continue to follow our pre-COVID on campus security procedures and expectations. Cell phones, book bags, purses, food, and beverages are not permitted in our classrooms. Cell phones, book bags, and purses will be collected and locked in cabinets upon entry into our school. All bags and purses are subject to daily searches by security and administrative staff. Parents, please make sure you know what your student is bringing to school before they get here. Tabaco, lighters, vapes, and related items will be confiscated and not returned. These items are not permitted on any high school campus regardless of a student’s age. Illegal items will be confiscated and turned over to local law enforcement.

Student’s will be provided a bottle of water and a small snack during each session and our student council will be selling snack items after each session starting the second week of school. If your student is required to take prescribed medication during school hours, please contact the principal for directions on how to do so. Students are allowed to posses a prescribed epi pen or inhaler without contacting the principal.

Tomorrow evening, Thursday August 12th, Charter West is hosting parent/student dinner and open house event from 5:30PM until 7:00PM. All family members are invited to attend. Students will receive their course schedules during the evening.

Every student is assigned a Mentor Teacher. Mentor teachers will be responsible for assisting both your student and you stay fully informed regarding course progress, issues, or concerns we may have. They will also be your primary point of contact as you assist in our efforts to help your student make steady progress toward their graduation. Please feel free to contact your student’s mentor teacher any time you have a question or issue we need to know about.
