Hello Walnut Acres Families,
We hope you had a wonderful summer and are excited for the new school year! Jaguar Day is just around the corner, and we are looking forward to seeing you there! Our new principal, Ms. Luong, will be there as well, so be sure to say hello.
We care about your time, so please complete the following checklist BEFORE Jaguar Day on August 12. This will enable you to skip lines for the Jaguar Fund, Spirit Wear, Student Food Emergency Kits, and Yearbook and enable you to spend more time socializing at the volunteer tables and with friends!

1. UPDATE MDUSD HOMELINK & PRINT NEW EMERGENCY CARD
Go to HomeLink to update your address, phone numbers, and emergency contacts. Complete this task by August 11th to receive your child’s class assignment immediately at Jaguar Day.
At the end of the student verification process, print the New Emergency Card and bring it with you to Jaguar day.
If you are a new family, or have a student who is enrolling at Walnut Acres for the first time, please go to the office through Monday, August 12 to get your verification code to enter your new student in HomeLink. You will need to show a photo ID (such as a driver's license) to receive the letter that contains your verification code. Alternatively, you may complete an Emergency Form, also available in the office, and bring it with you to Jaguar Day.
Reminder: Students must have all required immunizations completed before you receive your child’s class assignment at Jaguar Day.
2. REGISTER ON KONSTELLA
Konstella is our school’s communication tool for all PFC announcements and event sign-ups, and it is our online directory. New families need to register! Go to: www.konstella.com and click “Find Your School” and enter “Walnut Acres” to register.
*Note-after you get your class assignment on Jaguar Day, you can add your student to their classroom.
3. DONATE TO JAGUAR FUND
You can donate to our Jaguar Fund online via Konstella with a credit card.

If you prefer to pay by check, you can do so on Jaguar Day or at the office.
