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.

WASC Parent Survey

In the Spring of 2024, Walnut High School will be evaluated for accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WASC accreditation shows our school meets high standards for operating a quality program. WASC accreditation is an ongoing cycle, including an initial self-study process, creating a schoolwide plan, and hosting evaluation visits. An accredited school is a statement to the broader community and the stakeholders that it is a trustworthy institution for student learning and committed to ongoing improvement.

It is imperative that we hear from all stakeholders, teachers, students, parents, community members, support, and district staff, as we set improvement goals through this reflective process. To reach that goal, we have created an electronic parent survey. Please take the time to complete the survey below and assist us in setting plans to make WHS the best school possible.

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.

Attendance Reporting Hotline:

11 & 12 Grades: 909- 444-3642

9 & 10 Grades : 909 - 444-3625

GLC Summer Registration Appointments are Live!

Class of 2024, 2025, 2026, and 2027 students should have received an email from their GLC via Sign Up Genius with a link to select their summer registration appointment.

Parents, please coordinate with your student your preferred date and time! Preferably, sibling appointments should be selected on the same day. Sibling appointments will not be made for you.

Registration appointments will be held from July 5 - July 28.

IMPORTANT: Student schedules will be created in June based on their course request selections. There is no benefit or drawback to selecting the first summer or last appointments; please set the appointment time that best fits your schedule. Summer appointments are to review schedules, check for scheduling mistakes, and to ensure that your student is taking the most appropriate courses for their grade level and post-secondary plans. Teacher change requests will not be honored.

Any questions? Call 909-594-1333 and leave a message. Before calling, make sure your student checks their school-issued email.


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.


During summer registration, students and their guardians watched the rules and expectations video for the upcoming school year. If you did not have a chance to watch it, please take a minute to view the video to help you be successful this year!

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.
