News and Announcements
THE SECOND ANNUAL MUSTANG CORRAL SUMMER FEST WAS A HIT!
Last Saturday, The Mustang Corral Summer Fest provided great music, food, and a chance for the Walnut community to come together and kick off the school year! We raised $34,000 directly to our clubs, athletic programs, and performing arts groups to start the year with money in their account!
Thank you to Walnut High Community Club for making this all come together & Walnut High School ASB for planning a rally to showcase our school!
Check out the recap video below, edited by Hillina Ulloa.

Walnut High School Heat Protocol for Outdoor Activities
As we are experiencing hot and humid weather, we wanted to share how we handle excessive heat for our students involved in extracurricular outdoor activities. Our athletic trainer continuously monitors the weather with a wet bulb globe temperature thermometer.
Let’s take preventative measures and let’s keep reminding our students of the importance of nutrition and hydration (water + electrolytes) on a daily basis as we tackle these hot days!
Click below for the Walnut High School Wet Bulb Temperature Protocol.

DO YOU NEED A CHROMEBOOK FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR?
District owned Chromebooks are made available for checkout to students who choose not to bring their own device to school.
All students checking out a device will be expected to fill out the online Chromebook User Agreement . Students will not receive a Chromebook until they have filled out the form.
SCHOOL LUNCH POLICY

Food, drinks or other items are NOT to be passed to students through the fence. This is strictly prohibited.

STUDENT CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
2023-2024 Rules & Expectations at Walnut High School
Parents: One thing you will notice this year are tardy or cell phone detention automated emails. If your child was issued a detention for excessive tardies or a cell phone violation, you will get an email with information on the detention they need to serve.
Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.
All single-period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.
Attendance Reporting Hotline:
11 & 12 Grades: 909- 444-3642
9 & 10 Grades : 909 - 444-3625
