Medical Requirements

Do you have a student entering Grade 7?

Grade 7 students require two additional immunizations – Tdap booster and Menincoccal. There are two ways that we can access this information: if your Doctor utilizes the Immtrac2 system (the official Texas Immunization Registry) we can access your student’s records once they are loaded by your Physician. Another option is to bring a printed copy of your student’s records to the school during registration. Proof of immunization is required prior to the first day of school.

 

Will your student need to take medication while at school?

If your student will need to take medication at school, you may bring it to the Nurse's Office along with the 2019-2020 Medication Administration Request.

 

Volunteering

Do you think you may want to volunteer at Westlake Academy? Go on a field trip? If you think you might, please click here to complete the mandatory background check. This is a requirement of all volunteers and must be completed once per year. Doing it now will ensure that you will have the clearance you need right when you need it!

 

Athletic forms/physicals

All athletes are required to have a sports physical each year. We offer sports physicals on campus for your convenience. This year, Dr. Brad Griffin will be at the Sam and Margaret Lee Fieldhouse on Thursday, August 15th  from 1-4.  No appointment is needed. Cost is $20 per person (checks or cash only please).
