    You can always call the Westside High School Attendance Office to report student attendance, however, if you would like to avoid the phone call, you can download the SchoolPass app to contact the school about your child being absent from school, being late to school, or being picked up early from school. SchoolPass pulls data directly from PowerSchool, so it is very important to make sure that your information is up-to-date on the PowerSchool Parent Portal in order to use this option. Below is some information on how to use SchoolPass.

    HOW TO DOWNLOAD THE SCHOOLPASS APP - FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS VIDEO

    PLEASE NOTE: When logging in to the app for the first time, click on FORGOT PASSWORD so a temporary code can be sent to your email. You should use the same email that you have listed in PowerSchool for school communications.

    REPORTING AN ABSENCE, LATE ARRIVAL, OR EARLY RELEASE

    When your child(ren) will not be attending school:

    1. Click on the "+" on the bottom navigation bar to access the Add Changes menu and choose the appropriate option (i.e. Absent, Late Arrival, Early Pick Up).
    2. Select the day(s) on the calendar that attendance will be impacted.
    3. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: In the notes section, you must enter in information about the time frames your child(ren) will be gone (e.g. all day, mod 2 only, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm, early pick up at 1:45, etc.). Failure to provide notes will result in our Attendance Office not being able to process the attendance because we don't have enough information and an automated message being sent out at the end of the day because the attendance will be marked as an unexcused absence.
    4. If you have multiple students, select each student you are reporting an absence for (green arrow will appear).
