Families who missed the registration deadline and still wish to enroll in the WCPSS Virtual Academy are required to complete the waitlist request form by Wednesday, May 12, 2021. The deadline will not be extended beyond that date. Admission to the WCPSS Virtual Academy is not guaranteed and will be determined based on course/class availability.

WCPSS Chromebooks and WiFi Hotspots - What to Return and What to Keep
Any student who has a WCPSS-issued hotspot must return it to their school by the end of the school year. Hotspots will be disabled after the last day of school. Students who have a WCPSS-issued Chromebook will keep their Chromebook through the transition to the 2021-22 school year. Students are not required to return their Chromebooks to their school at the end of this school year, even if they are transferring or advancing to another WCPSS school. Students who are graduating or leaving WCPSS are required to return all devices to their school on or before their last day.

Face coverings will no longer be required for NCHSAA activities and competitions
Face coverings are not required for outdoor activities and competitions that are governed by the NC High School Athletic Association. For the health and safety of our student athletes and teams, we encourage athletes to wear face coverings outdoors when they are closer than six feet. This is also the recommendation of NC Department of Health and Human Services for anyone who is not vaccinated. Spectators are also encouraged, but not required, to wear face coverings.
