Hello Westlake High School Students, Parents, Faculty, and the Community.

2020 has been a year of heartbreak, triumph, pain, and growth. Since March of 2020, Westlake Students have been disadvantaged when it comes to learning and growing as individuals. Since March, some students have been in Universal Remote Learning and have been struggling with adapting to this new learning style.

It has really hit the Senior Class of 2021 the hardest. Some couldn't enjoy their last Homecoming, experience their Last First Day of School, or even make more memories with their friends in their last year in High School. Even though our Student Government and Administration are trying to make this year memorable for our Senior Class, little to none has been done to compensate our seniors accordingly. 

Besides having to deal with a global pandemic, our seniors have had to struggle applying to colleges, registering for standardized testing, and even trying to balance school, their extracurriculars, and their part-time jobs. We, the Senior Class of 2021, propose to have our final exams OPTIONAL to have one less stressor that has led to the decline of many students' mental health, which we fail to address. If a student wishes to opt-out of a final exam, they will not be penalized, but if they decide to opt-in for a final exam, they shall receive full credit for their exams.

Sincerely,

Khalil Daniels on behalf of the Senior Class of 2021 at Westlake High School
