Message from the WJHSD Board of Directors

Dear West Jefferson Hills School District Families,

We hope you are all well and enjoying time with your family members. We understand this is a time of uncertainty and unknown and want to reassure you that the district is positioned very well. We are all working diligently, proactively, cooperatively and strategically to persevere during this unprecedented time in our district, community and nation. 

As we transition to online learning tomorrow, we ask for your patience and understanding as we “get rolling” with this new initiative. Our teachers, administrators and support staff have worked intensely to be as prepared as possible to deliver a meaningful online learning experience for our students. We believe in our staff and their ability to provide the same level of academic excellence online that they provide in the buildings. This is an opportunity for our community to rally around this new process and support one another. There will be significant resources available to ANYONE who needs it. No issue is too small. We are all here to help and that includes members of the School Board. 

Thank you all, and please tell your children to be excited for the next generation of learning. This is a milestone for all of us. Good Luck, and remember #WErTJ!
