I have a similar problem with my before-school ensembles, and was lucky to get my school to agree to put the class on the students’ report cards as a half-credit elective as a “zero period” – it doesn’t effect their GPA much, but parents and high schools do see it. I’m still responsible for following up with attendance as the school won’t track it for me, but I do have the students sign a course description that very clearly lays out the attendance policy. Even getting it on their report card as a pass/fail class would probably help too!
