Virtual GLC Registration appointments | Data Confirmation

This year, COVID-19 has added an extra challenge to the season, so for the first time ever, GLC summer appointments will be done virtually. Virtual Meeting (by appointment you signed up for) will start on June 29th. More information will be provided as it becomes available. If you have not made your summer registration appointment, please contact Mrs. Markel at Parents, if your student’s registration appointment is during your on-line summer school class, please keep your appointment time. Teachers are aware and students will be excused during that time to attend their phone appointment with their GLC. We look forward to utilizing new digital platforms and virtual meetings to ensure everyone is supported.

Data Confirmation - Through your AERIES Parent Portal account you will be able to finalize parent/guardian information, emergency card information, and registration documents (in lieu of filling out paper forms.) The Aeries Parent Portal will be open June 1st for re-registration and verification of continuing students in Walnut Valley Unified School District. It is mandatory that all parents/guardians update student, and parent information, emergency card information and registration forms before your student’s summer registration date.

Congratulations to All the Winners!

Suicide Prevention Awareness: YOU could be the difference

Senior, Kaitlin Chheng, is currently working to raise Teen Suicide Awareness in our community as a part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. Mental health problems and suicidal thoughts may hide in plain sight, and it is up to us as a community to recognize this, raise awareness, and prevent it.
