It is now time for students to dress for the weather. In order to keep track of boots, jackets, hats and shoes, please take the time to label all your children's belongings. We hope this will help reduce mix-ups!
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.
SCHOOL PARKING LOT – PICKING UP and DROPPING STUDENTS OFF
Please comply with the “no parking” signs along the sidewalk in the drop-off zone. In the interest of safety and to minimize congestion in our parking lot, PLEASE only stop briefly to pick up or let your children off. If you need to leave your vehicle, we request you make use of our parking lot. Thank-you for your help with this!
