  • Scheduling
    Dear Parents, 
    Thank you for your unwavering support as we transition into the time of year when we create student schedules. As a reminder, this is the first time that you've been given the opportunity to choose the Virtual Academy or Plan B/Plan B-Transition.  With the new options, comes a learning curve for us as we figure out the best way to create the schedules.  Please be patient with us as we schedule some of the students by computer and some by hand-scheduling. 
    When the schedules are ready, I will notify you.
    Remember, every wcpss student will need a device to complete their school work this year.  To ensure that each student has a device, wcpss sent a survey to you requesting information about your child's access to an electronic device and internet access.  Please understand that if you have a device that your child(ren) will use, you must have enough devices for every school age child in your household to use. If you do not have one-to-one access, please indicate your need on the survey. 
    As we rebrand our school, thank you to the parents and students who are painting a section of wall while social distancing and wearing personal protective equipment.  For more information about the painting efforts, please see the PTSA link located under the Parents tab at the top of our website homepage.  Follow us on Twitter to keep up with what's happening at our school. 
    If you have any concerns or questions, please contact me at ppjohnson@wcpss.net. During the work week, I will respond within 24 hours. Friday, after 6 p.m. through the weekend, I will respond within 48 hours. (I need a little rest, too.)
    In partnership, 
    Pamela Perry Johnson, Principal
    Fred J. Carnage GT-AIG Magnet Middle School

  • Health Requirements

    State law requires that every child entering public schools in N.C. for the first time receive a health assessment. The assessment must occur within 12 months prior to entering school. The medical provider, parent or guardian is encouraged to provide a completed health assessment transmittal form to school on or before the child's first day of attendance. 

      A parent or guardian has 30 calendar days from the first day of attendance to present the required proof of immunization and health assessment. At the end of the 30 calendar day period, any child without a health assessment shall be prohibited from attending school until he or she has obtained the required assessment.  
      State law requires these vaccinations before or on the child's first day of attendance.
      Do not depend upon school records to arrive from another school system since records may arrive late or with incomplete or unacceptable medical information. If you cannot secure a certified immunization record, contact your physician or Wake County Human Services. If the completion of a new immunization series should run beyond the 30-day period, a physician's written statement that a series is in progress showing the anticipated completion date will allow the student to remain in school.
      If the school hasn't received by the 30th calendar day from the first day of a child's attendance a record of completed immunization or a physician’s note stating an immunization series is in progress, the principal is required by law to exclude the child from school on the 31st day until such evidence has been presented by the parent or guardian.

  • Message from the PTSA

    Dear Parents,
    After 55 years of looking out for our children, the walls of Carnage Magnet Middle School are in need of painting! We are looking to transform our hallways into vibrant areas, before school starts. We need your help! 
    We provide the paints (purple, green and gold) and you paint a 5' section of the hallways. Create something inspiring and beautiful like a school theme, geometric pattern, a small mural or an inspiration quote.
    Bring your paint brushes and ideas!
    Be a part of the change by signing up here!
    Join the Carnage PTSA now and give your child a Voice...and a t-shirt!
