    STUDENT SCHEDULES 

    We want to inform you that while draft schedules are available for viewing, NO SCHEDULES HAVE BEEN FINALIZED YET. It's expected that there will be further changes, so we kindly ask that you refrain from sending any schedule change request emails to the school until you have received your finalized schedule in early August.  The process for requesting schedule changes will be shared after schedules are officially released. 

     

    NEW ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM - SCHOOLCASH ONLINE 

    Beginning July 1, WCPSS will be utilizing a new online payment system called SchoolCash Online. Click here to learn more and set up your family account.

    INDIVIDUAL STUDENT REPORT FOR EOC RESULTS

    Parents of students who took EOC tests can now view their child’s Individual Student Report (ISR) in PowerSchool. To view your child’s ISR, log in to PowerSchool and click on State Test Reports in the left side of the menu. 

     

    2024-25 SCHOOL MEAL PRICES 

    Full-paid breakfast will be $2.00 and lunch will be $3.75. You can pre-pay for student meals online through My School Bucks. 

     

    NEW BUS DELAY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM 

    Starting this school year, parents of students who ride the bus now can receive up-to-the-minute notifications via text and/or email when their child’s bus is delayed. To receive these messages, you will need to make sure you have given permission to receive text and/or email notifications via SchoolMessenger. You can also check for bus delays by clicking on the Live Bus Updates link on your school’s transportation page, or by visiting wcpss.net/busupdates. You also can still track your child’s bus using the Here Comes the Bus app. 

     

    KEEPING STUDENTS UP TO DATE ON VACCINATIONS 

    Keeping children up to date on vaccinations is the best way to keep them healthy and reduce severe illness and unnecessary absences from school. See a list of all vaccines required for school attendance.  Updated vaccine records should be sent to SHS-studentsvcs@wcpss.net or Fax: 919-670-4438.
