Medication Pick-up On the Last Day of School

As the last day of school approaches, we would like to remind you that your child’s medication(s) need to be picked up by a PARENT/GUARDIAN on the last day of school. Medication cannot go home with your child unless they are authorized to self-carry their medication. Medication left at school will be properly disposed. Please remember, medication orders must be renewed by your healthcare provider each school year.

Recycle Club/Sustainability Committee at Open House

Open House was a great success for Recycle Club and we couldn’t have done it without your help! With the shiny new green bins and the clear signage on our trash stations we made it possible to properly compost and recycle at the Walnut Acres Open House.

Events are the biggest trash contributors because it is hard to control what is put in each bin, so we rely on you to properly recycle and compost. This event has shown us it is possible when we all work together.

Thanks for all your help. We couldn’t do it without you!

Ordering your kit is easy! Simply visit, search for Walnut Acres Elementary and pick the kit that matches your grade level.

Your kit will be delivered to school for you to pick up on Jaguar Day.
