Upper School Back-to-School Day was moved to Sept. 22 due to the second installment of “Carmageddon” 405 freeway closures between the 10 and 101 freeways.

The 405 will be closed on Sept. 29 and 30 in order to continue the expansion of the Mulholland Drive bridge, dubbed “Carmageddon II,” according to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s website.

“This coming closure could lead to traffic congestion, and to avoid the inconvenience to our Harvard-Westlake parents, the Back-to-School date was changed,” execuitve assistant Emily Kennedy said.
