Jets Parents,

 

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the start of our new school year! I have a few announcements for you today:

  • Congratulations to President Jeannie Sollars and our other 20-21 PTA Officers who were placed yesterday evening. THANK YOU for your willingness to serve our school community this year! To see the list of the 12 dedicated individuals serving this year, please click here
  • Registration for the Raleigh Parks & Rec “REC” camps will open on Friday, August 7th. In these camps, campers will have the opportunity to participate in their virtual learning classrooms while supervised by Raleigh Parks & Rec staff in a day-camp environment. Families can register for these camps on a week-by-week basis, but enrollment is limited. Plan to visit their website later this week for more information. 
  • WCPSS has created this resource site to assist parents and students with technology during virtual learning. 
  • If you have not yet applied for school meal benefits, you may complete an application online at www.wcpss.net/meals. Students eligible for reduced-price meals will receive their breakfast and lunch at no cost for the 2020-2021 school year. School meals are, and will continue to, be available to families via curbside pickup. For more information please visit https://www.wcpss.net/food.
  • The registration windows for the Virtual Academy are now closed. Any student not registered for VA will be placed into one of 3 rotating groups and begin school in the Plan B Transition plan. Parents of registered VA students should have received an email or phone call this afternoon confirming their enrollment in the Virtual Academy. Any parent who registered for VA, but DID NOT receive confirmation today should contact our Data Manager, Mark Flynn, right away at mflynn2@wcpss.net
