On Sunday, we remember those who lost their lives 21 years ago. ⁣

Thank you, Mr. Landis, for continuing to teach our students about this event so that we will never forget it. The video below is from 2019, where Walnut High School clubs have unified since 2011 to place American flags on the front lawn of Walnut High School, with each flag representing a lost life on 9/11/2001.

Mr. Landis and Ms. Takahashi's ADP class placed the flags in front of our school today for our community to view as they drive by. The flags will be placed out in front of our school all weekend. #NeverForget

Parent and Student Volunteers Needed

Every six years, WHS is required to renew its accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). A self-study process is required for this accreditation. This process helps us write an action plan for the kinds of changes that will help our school continue to thrive and remain one of the best comprehensive high schools in California. The voices of our parents, students, and community members are an important part of our self-study. Our Focus Groups will benefit greatly from your experience and ideas. Please scan or click the link below and complete the volunteer application if interested.

Great idea for WHS staff, teachers and Alums too!


Parking permits are required for students to park in the student lot. A student must have a parking permit to park in the student lot located by the Softball Field. In order to receive a parking permit, the student must complete the on-line application, HERE. The requirements are listed below:

  • Complete Student Parking Application
  • Download California Driver's License
  • Download evidence of vehicle insurance coverage with student listed as insured driver

Once the Parking Application is completed stickers will be issued by Mrs. Markel at the Assistant Principal's office. If you had a parking decal last year, you MUST complete the form again this year and replace your old sticker. You must have this on your car before parking in our lot on the first day of school. WVUSD is NOT responsible for any damage or theft of the vehicle, this includes any articles left in it.

1st and 2nd notices are being placed on student cars that DO NOT have a parking permit. Failure to obtain this permit will result in a referral to their GLC, loss of student lot parking privilege and a possible parking citation. Please stress to your students the importance of completing this task.


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.
