    Return to Physical Activity Update

    Below you will find a video to our Return to Athletics & Performing Arts Parent Informational Video. This video includes all of our safety measures that will be taken, including pre-workout screening, student-athlete arrival procedure, cohort guidelines, facility usage, athletic training services, student-athlete exposure protocol, as well as post-exposure return to play guidelines. After you have completed the informational video, please CLICK HERE to fill out a form acknowledging you watched the video and were informed on the content, requirements, and expectations of returning to physical activity at Walnut High School.

    As a reminder, these are VOLUNTARY workouts that cannot impact the student's grade, playing time, or making the team. These workouts are intended to get our Mustangs back on campus, connected, physically acclimated to conditioning, and necessary movements to prevent injury.

    Your child's head coach or director will be in contact regarding the next steps. Please click the link below to watch our informational video.

    We are looking forward to seeing our students back on campus, one step at a time!

    on campus safety screening

    For your safety, if you or your student come onto campus to pick up instructional materials, play sports, or have an appointment, please be aware you will be asked to fill out a visitor/parent/student assessment. Due to Covid- 19 the assessment is required by the State and the form itself is "CONFIDENTIAL."

    The questions are as follows:

    1. Are you experiencing any symptoms such as current or recent fever (100.4° or higher), chills, cough, shortness of breath or respiratory illness, sudden lack of taste or smell, or sudden onset of unexplained gastrointestinal illness?

    2. Have you been in close contact** with any person who has tested positive COVID-19 within the last 14 day?

    3. Have you or anyone living with you been out of the country within the last 14 days?

    **CLOSE CONTACT is defined as: Being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for 10 minutes or more; close contact can occur when having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (being coughed on).

    Please note: If you answer YES to any of these questions, please do not come to campus. We appreciate your efforts to keep us all safe during these uncertain times.

    Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not on camera at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.

    If your student is having difficulty logging in, please contact your teacher immediately, and remember to clear their attendance by the end of the day.

    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.

    We are so happy to see all of our students online and learning. They are working hard and making us proud. Keep up the great work!

    Attendance Reporting Hotline:

    • 9 & 10 Grades: 909-594-1333 Ext. 43642
