News and Announcements


On Monday, we remember those who lost their lives 22 years ago. ⁣

Thank you, Mr. Landis, for continuing to teach our students about this event so 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 and all day Monday. #NeverForget

Please Lock Your Bikes Up!

We want to ensure the safety and security of your bicycles while they are on our school campus.

Why Locking Up Matters:

Bicycles left unsecured can be vulnerable to theft, especially after-school hours. To prevent such incidents and protect your investment, please use a sturdy lock whenever you park your bike on campus.

Locking Tips:

  1. Use a Quality Lock: Invest in a good-quality lock that is difficult to cut or break.

  2. Lock to Designated Areas: Only park and lock your bike in designated bike racks by the K building student lot or in front of the school entrance.

  3. Secure All Parts: Lock both the frame and the wheels to the rack or post.

Thank you for being so cooperative in keeping our campus secure for everyone.

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.

2023-24 Walnut High School Rules and Expectations Video


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.
