Arrivals and Departures
Children may be dropped off to school starting at 7:25 A.M. Parents/family members are requested to limit their entrance into the building to the space outside the media center unless otherwise checked in through the office. This is strictly a security measure to prevent unauthorized entry into the building. People in the hallways without authorization from the office will be escorted to the office. Breakfast will be served each morning at South Walnut Elementary. South Walnut’s entrances remain locked during the school day.

At the end of the day parents are allowed to wait in the entrance foyer until students are dismissed. Please instruct your child to report home promptly from school. If children are not going directly home, arrangements should be made prior to their arrival at school. If there is a need to alter bus transportation, please call our Bus Garage at 427-6834. If students are staying after school for extracurricular activities or disciplinary reasons, they will need parent permission first.
Attention Parents, Guardians and Families:
We have a very active and successful PTO here at South Walnut. We need your help to continue to make this organization a success. We realize how busy everyone's schedules are, so we are asking every parent at South Walnut to make a two hour commitment to South Walnut Elementary for the 2016-2017 school year. If every parent was able to do this, then we could truly accomplish anything we wanted for our children. Are you ready to make your two hour pledge?

PTO meetings are at 5:00 p.m. in the South Walnut Media Center. Meeting dates for the 2016-2017 school year are the second Tuesday of each month.
