Mrs. Alpert's Message

Dear Cardinal Family,


I hope you are all doing well and remaining healthy during this challenging time that everyone is facing.  During this school closure period the Whittier High School guidance staff will continue to be here for you.  We are here to help assist you with any academic questions you may have and social/emotional concerns that may arise.


I am currently the counselor for students with last names Rodriguez-Z and the Puente program.  Personally, I am a proud parent of two young boys.  I do my best to guide each student, the same way I would want my own children guided.  I truly find it a privilege to be able to take part in your student(s) education as they navigate through their high school years and strive for a future of success upon graduation.


Students, parents/guardians, if you need to contact me, please do so via email and I will get back to you as quickly as possible (weekends excluded).  In your email, please include student’s name, ID number and the best number to reach you if you need me to call you.  Please know that I am here for you and my commitment is to serve you in the best possible way.


Stay healthy and safe Cardinals.  We are in this together and remember to always be Cardinals with CLASS!


Kind Regards,


Mrs. Alpert
