New Announcements

 

Remote Learning

The Wake County Board of Education voted on December 15th to move all students to remote instruction from January 4-15.  Therefore, students will not report to school for in-person instruction during these weeks.  Students will be expected to continue to log into their live google meet sessions during their scheduled class time.   

 

Asynchronous Day

Wednesday, January 6th is still designated as an asynchronous day for students.  Students will not have live class sessions on this date but instead complete work assigned to them by their respective teachers.  

 

2nd Semester Schedules

While it is our goal to minimize any schedule changes because we see the value in the routine and relationships our students have established with their current teachers, we have to ensure our classes remain balanced so our teachers are able to deliver high quality instruction to every student in their class.  Students that switched from Plan B to Virtual or vice versa will have new teachers for the 2nd semester.  Some students that are remaining in Plan B and Virtual may experience a change in teachers for one or more classes based on our need to collapse and balance classes.  We are unable to make schedule changes in powerschool that allow parents and students the ability to see their new teachers for 2nd semester until the end of the quarter which ends on January 15th.  However, we are working to find the best way to communicate these changes to students & parents prior to this date.  I will be communicating this process out in my message next Sunday, January 10th.  

 

As a reminder, we are unable to change students from Plan B to Virtual or vice versa for 2nd semester at this time.   

 

A & A/B Honor Roll

Students that made the A or A/B Honor Roll for 1st Quarter will be receiving a digital certificate on January 4th through their Wake County email.  If they do not receive the certificate in their email, please have them email Mr. Barbalato at nbarbalato@wcpss.net.
