News and Announcements
Senior Sunrise shines for the Class of 2023
This morning at 6:00 am, our Class of 2023 came together to watch the sunrise & bond as a class! Seniors also had a chance to write a future letter to themselves which they will open up at our Senior Sunset event in May. Drinks, donuts, music, and good vibes for the Class of 2023!
A big shoutout to our Senior Class Advisor, Diana De La Cruz-Wilds, for helping coordinate the event. Also thank you ASB, Mr. & Mrs. Schultz, and Walnut High Community Club for supporting our Seniors!

STUDENT VOICE IN ACTION : STUDENT THINK TANK
Don't miss out! The first Student Think Tank Meeting of 2022 is on 9/21 during lunch. Lunch will be provided. Each meeting, the Student Think Tank covers a goal or area of growth that we work on as a group.
The purpose of the Student Think Tank is to create and implement goals through student input into areas that impact student performance, safety and security, mental health, and other areas of concern. It's not too late to join! If interested, please fill out the form below with your WVUSD google account!
REMEMBERING THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
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
It's Homecoming Week!
On Friday Night, as halftime, we will crown our Homecoming Queen and on Saturday during our Homecoming Dance, we will crown our Homecoming King.

- 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.
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.

2022-2023 Rules & Expectations at Walnut High School
Parents: One thing you will notice this year are tardy or cell phone detention automated emails. If your child was issued a detention for excessive tardies or a cell phone violation, you will get an email with information on the detention they need to serve.
STUDENT CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
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
9 & 10 Grades : 909 - 444-3625
