Dear Walnut High School Families,
In March, the 2019-20 academic year changed abruptly for everyone. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country and world, we experienced school closures and the temporary suspension of extracurricular activities. With the guidance and direction of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, we are excited to announce that we are in the process of creating volunteer return to practice guidelines for athletics, cheer, and performing arts groups. There are strict guidelines and safety precautions that are required to bring these groups on campus, including small cohorts, social distancing, and disinfecting equipment. We will be offering parent meetings with administration and our coaches to review the process and answer questions. While we would like all student groups and activities to resume, our County Health Department has only authorized these select cohorts of student groups to be on campus at this time.
In the near future, you will receive a detailed timeline regarding the return to athletics protocol followed in the upcoming weeks with a plan of return for our performing arts groups. Our student and staff’s safety and well-being remain our top priority as we work together to bring our students back on campus. We understand that the situation may change during the school year, and we will remain flexible and adjust our plans as necessary. In the meantime, we are excited to welcome back our athletic and performing arts groups as we work to reacclimate back to physical activity.
