BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT SEPTEMBER 1!
On behalf of Walnut High School, we are happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! We hope the first two weeks have been a smooth transition for your child. Out of an abundance of caution as we still navigate COVID, we only allow ONE parent/guardian per child to our Back to School Night on September 1. Only ONE parent/guardian can enter the classroom to avoid overcrowding or standing-room-only classrooms.
Our evening will begin promptly at 6:00 pm, starting with 0 period. Our first period will begin at 6:16 pm. This is an excellent opportunity for you to follow your son/daughter's daily schedule and personally meet each teacher, learning about the class, goals, and expectations for the school year. Our student leaders, GLCs, administrators, and performing arts groups will be around campus, helping you find classrooms, answer any questions, and pass out campus maps.
Please click the link below for the official letter, schedule, and campus map as you prepare for Back to School Night.
After School Detention Starts Next Week
Detention starts on Monday, 8/22 . Detention runs from 3:35-4:35 in Room B13. Students may be assigned either a 30 minute or 1 hour detention for violating expectations outlined in the student handbook. Cellular phones must be kept out of site and must not be heard. To assist with this request, GLCs and detention facilitators will ask for students to place their cellular phone into a locked cabinet for the duration of their detention. When detention ends, students may remove their cellular phone from the locked cabinet.

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 return the following WHS DEVICE AGREEMENT FOR STUDENTS to Mr. Wendland with their signature and the signature of a parent or guardian. Students will not receive a Chromebook until they return the signed form.
Students who checked out devices during the period of Distance Learning and Summer School are expected to return those devices. No other device will be checked out until those are returned.
Important Nutrition Services Update
AB 130 Universal State Meal Mandate - Breakfast and Lunch will be provided at “no cost” this coming school year at all sites. Nutrition services are asking to fill out a meal application this year. Meal applications are NOT required to get the FREE meals.
Students do NOT have to take the meals, they can bring their own meals from home.
Approved meal applications help increase district funding and help households with discounts on various products and services but are NOT required to get FREE meals.

BIRTHDAY MARQUEE is now available! If you have a student that has a birthday coming up, be sure to make a birthday dedication on the WHS marquee! All proceeds goes to support WHS students and staff so RESERVE YOURS TODAY!

SCHOOL LUNCH POLICY
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.

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.
