2nd Annual Walnut Volleyball Golf Tournament
The Walnut High School Girls Volleyball Program will be hosting their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, June 9, 2023 at Los Serranos Golf Club.
This event raises vital funds to support our girls volleyball program. These funds will be used to purchase much needed equipment, tournament fees, transportation, meals, and a supportive coaching staff to help them succeed on the court.
Our goal is to always provide a safe instructive environment for all of our athletes to learn and develop skills to be a better volleyball player, but more importantly, a productive member of society, as well as fielding a competitive program.
In order to continue to make this experience a reality for our program, we are reaching out directly to area businesses, family, and friends, and offering the opportunity to help by becoming a sponsor.
Included in this letter is a brochure with a variety of sponsorship packages for you to review as well as details about the tournament. All donations to our volleyball program are tax-deductible. Our Tax ID # is 95-6003446. Your support for this event will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Reporting Full Day Absences and Tardies Over 30 Mins
Students will be subject to disciplinary action when a student has been absent from class without a valid excuse. All absences must be cleared within one (1) school day after the last date of absence. The preferred method for clearing absences is via parent/guardian phone calls to the attendance office.
Parents must call the attendance office the day their student is absent as early as possible or within two school days of an absence, at the latest. Messages may also be left. Please clearly state the student's first and last name, guardian name, dates or class periods absent, and reason for the absence.
A reminder email and robocall are sent to the parent on the day of the absence. If uncleared, the office will make a courtesy call the following day.
When parents do not call within the two school days, the absences are counted as truant and referred to the GLC. We will not accept late phone calls.
