The record of your student’s attendance is a critical part of their education.  Please use this website to answer questions, and follow the tips in the “Auto response” to your emails to ensure the process is smooth for you and your student.  Some reminders:

  • WHS Attendance Office does not accept phone calls to notify or clear absences. Contact us via email at within 48 hours of your student’s return that states the date and reason for absence. Doctors’ notes or other documentation should be attached to the email. All documentation must be received within 5 days

  • When arriving or leaving campus, students must always check in and out through the Attendance Office to keep their attendance accurate. 

  • Please refer to the EISD school calendar and WHS bell schedule when making appointments and in planning travel days to help minimize impact on instructional time.

  • Westlake High School follows attendance rules set out by the Texas Education Agency and policies set by Eanes Independent School District.  For further information, please refer to the “Resources” section below.
