    Final Exam

    Parents please pay close attention to the final exam schedule on the school website. Only students with state exams should attend school this week. If your child needs to make up a missed exam please contact their teacher directly.

    Students must have permission slips that can be printed from the Wakefield High school website to leave early on exam days.

    The only students who should show up to school Friday June 9th are students who need to take make up exams. Transportation will not be provided on exam make up day.

    Graduation

    All seniors are required to attend graduation rehearsal at the Raleigh Convention Center on Monday, June 5th from 1:00-3:00 PM.  Students should arrive no later than 12:30 PM and go directly to their seats on the ceremonial side of the stage. School clothes can be worn for rehearsal.

    Tickets will be given to students as they walk across the stage during rehearsal.  All students will receive 9 tickets.  Fines and fees must be paid and accounts must be cleared in order to receive tickets.  Some students will be attending rehearsal and will still have books that need to be returned.  Tickets are marked and will be waiting for students in the Media Center after books, accounts, fines and fees have been taken care of.

    Tuesday’s Incident

    As you all know last week was a difficult week for Wakefield. Despite the black eye we received in the media, Wakefield is still a great school that values and embraces the differences and diversity of all the students we serve. We will not let the actions of a few individuals define us a school.  We are still proud to call ourselves Wolverines and will use what happen as opportunity to start the necessary dialogue that will move us toward a path of healing, reconciliation and growth. Always remember at Wakefield High School it’s all about the W.

    Car Pool

    Property owners who live across from the school are reporting that parents and students are parking on their streets during the school day.  In particular, they are parking there during carpool times in the mornings and afternoons.  This means parents are dropping off and picking up students away from school property.  This is a dangerous practice in that it requires students to walk across Wakefield Pines Drive to get to school.  This is being done to avoid being in the carpool line.  Although we recognize that carpool is an inconvenience to some, we are requesting that you adhere to the school's carpool policy. This message is also to inform you that the City of Raleigh will be adjusting the public parking times on these streets and you will no longer be able to park there without getting a citation.  The carpool map is posted on the school website so please review our policy and the recommendations for carpool there."
