Halloween is here and as always, we will allow students to show their Halloween spirit, but there are some guidelines we must follow to ensure student safety:
- Students are prohibited from wearing costume masks
- Make-up or face painting should be very minimal. Staff needs to still be able to EASILY identify a student wearing make-up or face painting. If your face is fully painted, you will be required to wash your face before attending classes
- Weapons, or replica weapons are not allowed
- Costumes need to adhere to the school dress code and should not disrupt the instructional program during school hours. If you have ANY questions regarding your costume, please see your GLC before Halloween for guidance or approval.
Thank you for you cooperation Brahmas. We look forward to a fun and safe Halloween on campus.

Walnut Valley Unified School District has moved to ParentSquare!
We are excited to let you know that starting the 2022-2023 school year, ParentSquare will be replacing Blackboard Connect as the new district-wide communication platform. ParentSquare, will allow Diamond Bar High to unify all parent communication from the district, schools, classrooms, and school activity groups under one umbrella.
With ParentSquare you’ll be able to
- Receive all school and classroom communication via email, text or app
- View and download photos
- View the school and available classroom calendars
It is our hope that WVUSD's partnership with ParentSquare will enable a stronger dialogue between school & home. We also hope it will help empower everyone within the school community to stay connected and informed.
While ParentSquare can send messages through both email and text messages, we believe the best experience will be through the phone/tablet app which you can download by the links below.
You can also create a password for your ParentSquare account on your computer by clicking HERE.
