Notifying us about student absences

What do I do if my student will be absent?

 

  • When your student will be absent from school, please send us an email to attendance@westlakeacademy.org to let us know.
  • If your student arrives late to school because they started their day at a medical appointment, they must check in at the appropriate office before proceeding to class or lunch on campus. Bringing the medical note at this time is the best option. If forgotten, medical notes can be emailed to attendance@westlakeacademy.org.
  • If your student is a student driver and will be leaving campus early for an appointment, parents must email permission with the time the student is to leave campus to attendance@westlakeacademy.org. Even though the student has permission to leave, they MUST always check out in the Secondary Office prior to leaving campus.
  • If your student will be riding home with another student, please email permission and instructions to dismissal@westlakeacademy.org.

 

If your child is sick....

 

A friendly reminder to please keep your child home if they are ill. In an effort to maintain a healthy campus, we ask you all to please be mindful of the safety of other students and staff and not send your child to school if they’re experiencing a fever, cough, headaches, and other cold, flu, and COVID-like symptoms.

 

If your child tests positive for COVID, please call the campus nurse at 817-490-5778 or notify us by email. In addition, please notify covidquestions@westlakeacademy.org.
