    Dear families,

    As many of you know, our schools are closed until April 13, 2020 due to the coronavirus. We wanted to let you know that we (the staff and I) are here to help every family at Walker. Teachers have communicated with students and parents to keep them up-to-date with what is going on in the district and the classrooms. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail me @ Mariana.Garate@sausd.us or the teachers (First name.Last name@sausd.us). Please do not call the school as the office is closed. Thank you!

    Please click the students' resource links (on the left hand-side of this page) to get to the different programs (Lexia, ST Math, A.R, MyON and Reading Plus.)

    I wanted to personally welcome you and your family to an exciting new year. Here is some important information regarding our school.
    • School begins at 8:10 a.m. this school year for grades K - 5. Our first bell will ring at 8:05 a.m. and by 8:10 a.m. All students must be in their classrooms sitting at their desks and ready to begin their school day. Any students arriving after 8:10 a.m. will be considered tardy.
    • Dismissal times:
                         Kindergarten                      1:47 p.m.
                         Grades 1 - 3                       2:15 p.m.
                         Grades 4-5                   2:35 p.m.
    • Modified Days: Every Wednesday is a modified day at all elementary and intermediate schools, district-wide. The purpose of these modified days is to provide teachers with an opportunity to collaborate with one another to discuss instructional strategies for effective teaching. This means that Walker will release students early every Wednesday for the entire school year, August through May.  
    • Dismissal times for *MODIFIED WEDNESDAYS:
                         Kindergarten, Grades 1 - 3               1:10 p.m.
