General Announcements & Information

Attendance Reminder

Please be reminded that, even in Remote Learning, if you are absent from school/class the absence needs to be cleared by calling our Attendance Office at (805) 373-1790. Informing the teacher of the absence will not clear the absence in Q. Thank You!

Pick-up and Drop-off Expectations

Westlake High School would like to share with you the following traffic and pedestrian reminders:

  1. Students are not allowed to walk across Lakeview Canyon Road or any other street at any time unless they are crossing through a designated crosswalk. If a student decides to jaywalk across any street, not only are they putting themselves in danger, they will also be at risk of getting a citation from the Thousand Oaks Police Department.
  2. Please be advised that the pick-up and drop off zone in front of the school is to drop off and pick up students only. Do not park in this designated zone as it prevents others from using this designated zone.
  3. As you are entering Lakeview Canyon Road, please abide by the 25 mile per hour speed limit at all times and be alert of any student walking across the street.
  4. You are strongly encouraged to drop off and pick up your student from the student parking lot as there is less traffic and it allows students to enter the campus between Building 1 and 4.

Free Student Lunch Available

Free lunch is available for all students. No student ID is required. Stop by the cafeteria snack window or by the bridge to pick up your free lunch.

Campus Visitors

Be reminded that all staff, students, and visitors to Westlake High School will be screened upon entering campus. This includes wearing of a mask while on campus, temperature taken, and questions regarding current health. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
