We are so excited to let you know that parents can now excuse student absences online via Skyward. Please note this is NOT for tardies, only absences. You can only parent excuse absences within the 10 school day excusal period. To verify your students' attendance and any updates to it, please check Skyward.

The State Board of Education released an absenteeism letter in September 2016.  It is extremely important to have your student(s) attend school everyday.  Alpine School District views and understands the importance of good attendance–you can read about that here.  Make sure you are aware of the attendance policy (below) at Westlake High School.  In an effort to help track your students’ attendance, please sign up in Skyward to receive email notifications.  To excuse absences, tardies, etc., please email [email protected].
