Cheers to the End of the Semester: Wishing You All A Restful Winter Break!

When the final bell rang yesterday to end our semester, the Walnut High Community Club passed out hot chocolate to all of our students as they exited campus and into the break!

We wanted to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to our parents as we close out the first semester of the 2022-2023 school year. Walnut High School is a special place because of the hard work, dedication, time, and effort our staff and parents put in behind the scenes to make our students successful. We hope you take these next two weeks to unwind, rest, recharge, and find renewal as we head into the second semester.

Class of 2026 | Habit #4 Think Win-Win

Habit #4 Think Win-Win Think Win-Win is an attitude toward life, a mental frame of mind that says I can win and so can you. It’s not me or you, it’s both of us. Think Win-win is the foundation for getting along well with other people. It begins with the belief that we are all equal, that no one is inferior or superior to anyone else, and no one really needs to be. This short video encapsulates the ideas of Think Win-Win and compels us to take on this point of view in 2023.

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.
