Meals will be served at no cost to students at food distribution sites across Wake County through Monday, Aug. 31. Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 1, students will pay for meals based on their meal benefits eligibility. In addition, a student’s ID number will need to be provided in order to receive meals beginning September 1. Parents/guardians may pick up meals without a student present if they can provide the ID number of the student. Please remember that Brentwood is a food distribution site. For more information and a list of all distribution sites, visit wcpss.net/food.
Technology and Support
We understand and recognize that there are still some students who are without a technology device. Thank you for your continued patience as WCPSS works to distribute devices to students. If you requested a device, you will be notified of your assigned pick-up date as soon as possible, if you have not already.
We encourage parents to visit wcpss.net/techguides for technology support. The resources on this site show students how to log in to their Wake IDs and student email, how to set up and use Chromebooks and Internet hotspots, how to connect to WiFi, how to use learning systems such as Google Classroom and much more. You can also find contact information for the WCPSS help desk.
Please contact your child’s teacher or the school if you need any assistance. We are here to support you. Thank you again for your GRACE, PATIENCE, and FLEXIBILITY.
Have a wonderful week!
