Family Update

Dear Families,

I hope the weather for the long weekend is as nice as the weather we’ve been having during the week!  Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we continue to safely get our students to and from school everyday.  Main St. construction is completed and looks great!  Once North Ave. is completed, we will return to buses only on Main St. and Parent Drop Off/Pick Up on North Ave.

Since Monday is a holiday, there is no school.    For all updates and resources about Walnut Square, please visit our website:  You can also “like” our Facebook page, Walnut Square Elementary School and follow us on Instragram @walnutsquaresuperstars.

It is very helpful if families send the following to school with their children:

  • Water bottle (we have a water bottle filling station)
  • Masks (and some extra masks)
