Principal Message (4/8/24)


Seniors and Senior Parents/Guardians


Water/Nerf Gun Battles

I embedded the WCPSS message below yesterday in the principal message, and I am sad to report that some seniors showed up on campus this afternoon to engage in "water wars."  I want to reiterate that we do not want this on the school campus.  If students display any of these behaviors on campus, they will have consequences. 


Rumors: The grand prize is $1,000. Rules are that seniors can not engage a participant if they are active in a school activity.  If you strip down to your undergarment they cannot spray you with water.


Please talk with your kids.


WCPSS Message

Our district has received multiple reports from area law enforcement agencies regarding local high school seniors engaged in water gun and NERF gun battles in off-campus locations across our community. Law enforcement also shared with us that they are getting reports of students who are trespassing on private property and driving recklessly while engaged in these activities. We are joining with law enforcement to ask you to encourage your student to make responsible decisions. Students who trespass or drive recklessly can face legal consequences and could put their future in jeopardy. Please continue to monitor your student’s activities. The best means to keep schools and communities safe is to maintain healthy and open relationships between adults and children at all times. Students and parents can also report safety concerns to our anonymous tip line, (919) 856-1911.We appreciate your partnership in keeping our communities safe and ensuring that our seniors stay on track for a successful future. If you have questions, please contact Officer Kellam, our SRO at, or call the non-emergency line for your local law enforcement agency.
