WHS Attendance Office does not accept phone calls to notify or clear absences. Please contact us via email at with any available documentation  within 48 hours of your student’s return that states the date and reason for absence. Doctors’ notes may be attached to the email or may be hand delivered by the student upon their return.

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.
