Kindergarten Registration for 2017 began on Monday, January 16th but it's not too late to register! This is for children born in 2012. Parents are asked to bring birth certificate and CARE card. Registration hours each day are from 8:00 am - 3:30 pm. If you have neighbors or friends whose children will start kindergarten in the fall, please remind them it's time to register.
Enrollment for 2017-18 We want to determine as accurately as possible the number of students who will be attending Walnut Park next year. If you are moving out of town or will be registering your child in another school in the area, please let us know.

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!
