The first 2 weeks of school will be reviewed in the sessions this week and will be posted on our website. We will host our first Parent Coffee on August 24th at 8am and 4pm. We will discuss in greater detail the learning and teaching schedule starting August 31st. The meeting codes are:

WCPSS Technology Services Department is preparing devices for all students who requested a device through the Technology Survey that was conducted in July. Leesville Road High, Knightdale High, South Garner High, Apex High and Enloe High will serve as distribution sites and families will be able to go to the site that is most convenient. Technology Services will contact you when your device is ready. If you did not complete the survey or need to change your response, please contact the school this week.
As a reminder, all 7th grade students are required to have a TDAP Booster as well as the Meningococcal Vaccine and Martin is required to have a copy of the vaccination on file. Please send a copy of the proof of vaccine to Ms. Sepulveda at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to send a copy via email, please plan to drop the hard copy off at school starting August 17th.
Finally, I know many students are excited to see who their teachers are for this year and are looking in PowerSchools for schedules. Please understand that schedules have not been finalized and what you see today is not accurate and will likely change. Thank you for your patience as we work hard to finalize schedules this week.
Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
