NOTES

A bell at 7:18 am will dismiss students from the gym, courtyard, cafeteria, and media center to their first-period class.

 

 

Cafeteria Guidelines | While eating breakfast or lunch, students must stay in the cafeteria and remain seated.  No food should be in any academic areas.  Restaurants are not allowed to deliver food to the school. If parents bring outside food for students, the student will be provided a designated area to consume the food items not in the cafeteria to be within the guidelines of the Federal School Lunch Program.

 

Before School – Where to go? | When students arrive on campus, they must report to the cafeteria, the media center, or school courtyard (main gym on rainy days – seated in bleachers).

 

Morning Carpool Pattern | All carpool students should enter the North entrance driveway.  Vehicles exiting the morning carpool will exit the school’s property on Roberts Pond Road.  Please follow the signs. This will allow vehicles to turn right to return to Wendell or to turn left to return to Rolesville Road.   This pattern change will improve traffic visibility entering back onto Rolesville Road and reduce the back up in the carpool loop.
