Keeping Kids Home When They Are Sick

As we approach the cold and flu season, it is important to uphold a health-conscious atmosphere and minimize the transmission of illnesses. We kindly request that you keep your child at home if they are unwell. If your child has a fever, please make sure they remain home until they have been fever-free for a full 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. This precaution is essential for the well-being of our school community.


Holiday Assistance Program

It’s almost time to begin our holiday assistance program. If you are able to help support the program, or are in need of assistance, please review this flyer for more information


No Early Dismissal After 3:15

As a reminder, we do not dismiss students for early dismissal after 3:15. If you need to pick your child up early for an appointment, please make sure it is before 3:15.


Visitor Check-in Reminder

We appreciate your patience as we transition the procedures to welcome visitors entering the school building. Wake County Public School System recently upgraded the visitor sign-in process to offer a uniform experience in all schools.  To simplify the process, please bring a driver’s license or state-approved ID card. Also, please allow plenty of time to complete the sign-in process when visiting for volunteer opportunities, to attend lunch with your child, and for meetings or conferences. As all visitors must register in the office, the process may take a few minutes to complete. We look forward to seeing you on campus.Thanks so much for all that you do!  


Kindergarten Registration for 2024-2025

Kindergarten Registration for the 2024-2025 school year opened on October 16th.  If you have a rising kindergartener for the next school, you can begin registration by going to the WCPSS website under enrollment and select 2024-2025.
