Principal Mid-Week Message 3-17

 

Hello this is Kathryn Hutchinson, Principal of Centennial Campus Magnet, with a mid-week special message.

I hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy during our track out. As I am sure you all have heard, all Wake County Public Schools have been closed until atleast March 27th. This extends our time away as we are already out. Please be sure to continue to stay in communication with the district on guidance and information. Our staff has been reaching out concerned and sending positive thoughts to you all in the midst of everything.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to our counselors or social worker with any needs that come up. I am sure as our teaching staff comes off of track out, they may be reaching out to connect as well.

In the meantime, I want to share again this important information for food distribution and opportunities to help. Thank you to the many families that have already reached out to me asking how to support our community.

I am grateful for our Red Wolf community who cares for each other!
