Walnut Creek Advisory

>Advisory is a time for students and staff to build community. Students engage in circle work, social emotional learning and positive behavior support activities, college and career readiness and they are involved in team building competitions. 


Students are allowed to drive to school and park in the Walnut Creek parking lot. Students will need to complete an online form to request to park.

WDMCS seeks to cultivate a culture of belonging and inclusion. All students parking on school property are expected to adhere to Board Policy 502.05 Freedom of Expression


Cell Phones and Communication

If there is a family emergency, please contact the school office, and they will reach your student. If there is an emergency at school, we will call the parent/guardian.

  • Students may be asked to place their device in a caddy for the duration of the class.
  • Cell phone/handheld electronic device usage is only allowed before or after school unless permitted by the teacher. This includes the use of earbuds.
  • Smart watches can be worn as long as they are not a distraction.
  • If a phone or other device becomes a distraction, a teacher or staff member may keep the device until the end of the day.
  • WDMCS is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen cell phones or communication devices.
  • To learn more about cell phone privacy, please read Board Policy 502.09 - Search and Seizure

Student Dress and Appearance

Students and their parents/guardians are mainly responsible for deciding what a student wears to school each day. When students feel comfortable in their clothes and can express their individuality or family culture, it helps them focus better on learning. WDMCS has expectations for student dress based on safety and showing respect to others.

Students should dress appropriately for the weather, wearing coats, hats, gloves, and boots when needed. Families needing help with clothing or shoes can contact the school office.

For safety, students must always wear shoes. Clothing promoting illegal products for minors or showing inappropriate material is not allowed. If a student wears such clothing, they'll be asked to change or given something else to wear for the day.

If there are concerns about a student's dress, the school administration will work with the parent/guardian and student to find a positive solution. Board Policy 502 — Student Appearance gives the administration the final say on student dress and appearance.
