MUSTANG "ROUND UP" Information
Walnut High School started the "Mustang Round-Up" this week during out tutorial period.
Here are some details:
- Students have from 10:30 - 10:40 am to find a classroom for academic support. At 10:37 we will make an announcement letting students know they have to be in a classroom during tutorial by 10:40 otherwise, they will be sent to the "Mustang Round-Up".
- A GLC will scan students in and an email will be sent to parents/guardians
- All students in "Mustang Round-Up" will quietly work on something in the assigned classroom. It is not a hang-out time! We really want our students to focus on finishing homework, getting extra help, and using that time during the school day to get ahead.
Note: Tutorial takes place most Tuesdays and Thursdays after second block. During this time, students report to their academic teacher for additional support. Tutorial at Walnut High School is a 50-minute block of time built into the school day twice a week to focus on intervention and academic support. Please reinforce the importance of maintaining good grades and using every opportunity offered to do so here on campus.
Chromebook Distribution Roll Out
This week we started passing out Chromebooks to the Class of 2023. Next week, we start passing out to our Senior and Sophomore classes. With a new shipment of Chromebooks coming in, we are able to expedite our process of distribution. By September 3, every student will have access to a device on campus while in the classroom and at home. If your child has a personal device and wishes to use it on campus, they can do so by accessing our Bring Your Own Device Network. If you currently have a district checked-out device, you may continue using that device.
Our Sophomores and Seniors will be escorted by their English teachers next week.
If a student is not able to attend with their class, they will have the opportunity to pick up a device on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:50 - 3:30 outside the Technology Distribution Center (right next to the library) during their designated week.
Each student must turn in a user device agreement form that is signed by both the student and parent before receiving a Chromebook. Below is the user device agreement for your reference. Your child will turn in the user device agreement in exchange for a Chromebook.
Please note that by Tuesday, September 7, every student is expected to have a device on campus for their classes whether district-issued or their personal device.
If you have any further questions, please contact Kevin Wendland at email@example.com.

2021-2022 COVID Response Protocols
First and foremost, we thank you for your partnership and support as we strive to put “Kids First, Every Student, Every Day” with the reopening of all schools.
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff remain our top priority. All safety recommendations and protocols adhering to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health have been implemented.
The WVUSD 2021-2022 Safe Practices Handbook was emailed to all parents and guardians last week, and it describes the protocols that are in place. We have attached (link below) the handbook with this communication for your reference.
One of the protocols outlined in the handbook is WVUSD’s Response to COVID Situations at School. As linked below, parents will receive a phone call if their child shows symptoms or if their child is in close contact with a person at school with a confirmed positive COVID test.
Parents may receive initial phone calls as a response to positively identified COVID cases. Parents whose children are directed to quarantine will receive follow-up phone calls from our district staff with detailed information. You may receive these follow-up calls during the evening hours.
Aeries One Time Student Health Screening
Parents/guardians must complete a one-time 2021/2022 COVID-19 Student Health Screening form acknowledging responsibility for your child’s daily health screening before entering the school campus. This form is now available on AERIES portal and must be completed for each child that attends WVUSD. A banner will appear in each AERIES account before the start of school.
