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

STUDENT CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
2023-2024 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.
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
