Habit #3 of Freshmen Roadmap

During the culmination of this month, our Freshmen GLCs are emphasizing Habit #3 of the Freshman Roadmap. Habit #3 emphasizes that finding resources is a necessary skill for lifelong learning and effective work in many fields. Our website, is a resource that helps students find answers to questions about their own about social/emotional awareness, Walnut High School graduation requirements, a through g graduation requirements, various mustang pathways and much more.

Habit #3


Due to many problems and safety issues we DO NOT allow student lunches to be delivered anywhere on campus.

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

Outside Food Delivery Services such as UBER Eats/Door Dash is strictly prohibited. Food will be confiscated if deliveries are dropped off.

We understand the importance of student nutrition but we encourage students to either use the free lunch at school or bring their lunch from home.


Students must attend every class, every day, and be on time. In order to receive daily credit, students are to bring all necessary materials to class. Students will not be excused from class to get materials. Homework and class assignments are to be completed on time and to the best of the student’s ability. Only behaviors befitting the learning environment are acceptable. Students are to comply with all reasonable requests of any staff member. Dress code will be enforced.


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
