National Hispanic Recognition Award

Congrats to these amazing Walnut High School students who were recently recognized by College Board as National Recognition Program awardees. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented communities through College Board’s Student Search Service. These students earned this recognition by placing in the top 3% in the country on their PSAT/NMSQT, earning passing scores on multiple AP exams, and maintaining a high GPA in their classes.

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.

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.
