Information for Parents

There is an increased awareness at the Federal, State and local levels regarding bullying issues.  We have heard numerous times in the last few years confusion, complaints and have sensed anger regarding real and perceived bullying. Expectations can be found in the code of conduct. 

Walton Central School District cares about protecting our students.  Protection begins with education.  We cannot do this without help from parents and the community; please work with us in educating our youth.

Listed below are various topics and what is currently scheduled to address them.
