News and Announcements

Join Us For Our Annual Back To School Night!

On behalf of Walnut High School, we are happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! We hope the first two weeks have been a smooth transition for your child. Out of an abundance of caution as we still navigate COVID, we only allow ONE parent/guardian per child to our Back to School Night on September 1. Only ONE parent/guardian can enter the classroom to avoid overcrowding or standing-room-only classrooms.

Our evening will begin promptly at 6:00 pm, starting with 0 period. Our first period will begin at 6:16 pm. This is an excellent opportunity for you to follow your son/daughter's daily schedule and personally meet each teacher, learning about the class, goals, and expectations for the school year. Our student leaders, GLCs, administrators, and performing arts groups will be around campus, helping you find classrooms, answer any questions, and pass out campus maps.

Please click the link below for the official letter, schedule, and campus map as you prepare for Back to School Night.

Parent and Student Volunteers Needed

Every six years, WHS is required to renew its accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). A self-study process is required for this accreditation. This process helps us write an action plan for the kinds of changes that will help our school continue to thrive and remain one of the best comprehensive high schools in California. The voices of our parents, students, and community members are an important part of our self-study. Our Focus Groups will benefit greatly from your experience and ideas. Please scan or click the link below and complete the volunteer application if interested.

Nutrition Services' Online Prepayment System

WVUSD Nutrition Services are experiencing some delays with transitioning to their new online prepayment provider, TITAN (family portal).

If parents/guardians have already made payments using eFunds those payments will be transferred to TITAN.

Do you need a Chromebook for the School Year?

District owned Chromebooks are made available for checkout to students who choose not to bring their own device to school.

All students checking out a device will be expected to return the following WHS DEVICE AGREEMENT FOR STUDENTS to Mr. Wendland with their signature and the signature of a parent or guardian. Students will not receive a Chromebook until they return the signed form.

Students who checked out devices during the period of Distance Learning and Summer School are expected to return those devices. No other device will be checked out until those are returned.

Important Nutrition Services Update

AB 130 Universal State Meal Mandate - Breakfast and Lunch will be provided at “no cost” this coming school year at all sites. Nutrition services are asking to fill out a meal application this year. Meal applications are NOT required to get the FREE meals.

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.
