A newsletter for Walnut Hills High School
September 3, 2021
Dear Walnut Hills High School Families,
As we head into the Labor Day weekend, I want to thank all of our parents for your fantastic support as we began this school year. I am particularly appreciative for everything that you have been doing to support our students with the changes in transportation and the overall adjustment to the new school year.
I would also like to thank our hard working and caring faculty and staff who have made a huge difference to our students. Their commitment is outstanding and our kids are the beneficiaries. Thank you for being part of a school community that provides rich and engaging, well-rounded experiences for our kids.
In closing I want to wish you a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend, and I look forward to seeing everyone bright and early on Tuesday morning.
