Skyward Updates & Info
1This year, the Skyward Student Information Update includes three new important provisions with regards to Student Data Privacy. We highly encourage you to complete the Student Information Update for each student prior to school starting. We encourage parents/guardians to thoroughly read through the provisions for steps 5 and 6 to understand the implications of the choices presented with regards to student data privacy. Students will not be able to use the school computers or internet until the Student Information Update is completed in their behalf (steps 5 and 6 specifically). The Student Information Update is accessed by logging into Skyward (parent account only) and selecting “Student Information Update”, selecting the student, and completing the ten steps for each student. For a step by step tutorial on how to update your students account CLICK HERE!
3If you have moved or will be moving, you will need to go through the complete withdrawl process that begins with the registrar, Ms. Johnson. She must know if a student will not be attending Westlake this coming year and where they will be moving to. Please let us know as soon as possible.
5If you or your student are in need of Crisis Intervention such as, suicidal thoughts, depression, and/or anxiety, our Counseling Office can provide you with the necessary resources to recognize the symptoms and take the appropriate action steps to get help.

2If you are a new student to the area and need to register at Westlake, you can do that by appointment only. Please see the “New Student” registration tab for all the forms and details.
4 In order to ensure a smooth transition into the beginning of a new school year, we encourage you to carefully review your student’s schedule on Skyward. If there are changes needed, please call the counseling office (801.610.8816) to schedule an appointment with a school counselor to complete those changes before the first day of classes. To minimize class disruptions, there should be very few schedule changes needed after the first day of class. Students are asked to attend the first A day and B day as per their schedule. No class changes will be made on the first two days of class. There will be a $5.00 fee for class changes that are granted. Class changes will only be granted if there is availability.

There are so many options out there–don’t settle for less than you want to see yourself achieve.
ScholarshipsApplying for scholarships can be a taunting task however, we highly encourage all students to apply for scholarships sometime through their high school career. This page is designed to help parents and students determine what can be applied for and help with pursuing a higher education path. We have also included information regarding financial aid and student loans.
1Financial Aid is any grant or scholarship, loan, or paid employment offered to help a student meet his/her college expenses. This aid is usually provided by various sources such as federal and state agencies, colleges, high schools, foundations, and corporations. The amount of financial aid that a student receives is determined through federal, state and institutional guidelines. Grants include aid the student receives that need not be repaid; loans must be repaid. Interest rates and repayment terms very by program. Employment is aid based on an hourly rate for work performed.
**New Scholarships are Added Frequently!**
