WALNUT PARK is a “SCENT AWARE” SCHOOL
Our school is designated as a ‘Scent Aware’ school. For the health benefit of all staff and students we ask that all visitors and staff refrain from wearing strong scented perfume, creams, etc. Signage is posted at our main doors. On behalf of our Health & Safety committee and those sensitive to scents, we thank you for your attention to this matter.
Messages for Students
At times we field many messages from parents to their children. We are trying to minimize disruption to classes as much as possible. We appreciate your help and support with this. If messages are unavoidable, please call before 2:45 so that we will have time to deliver them.
