Health and Safety

As a reminder, all students should come to school with a face covering.  If a student does not have one, we will provide one.  All students will need to use a water bottle, our school water fountains remain closed at this time.  We will continue to social distance as much as practical.  WCPSS follows the guidance from the NCDHHS Safe Schools.  As practices and guidance changes occur, I will update you.  Thank you for all that you do to keep students healthy and safe.  


Parents bringing their children to and from school must utilize the carpool line during arrival and dismissal. Please remain in your cars in the carpool line, do not park and walk your child to the front door. There are multiple staff members outside to assist with escorting children in the building safely. We appreciate your patience and support.

Bus Transportation

The yellow bus transportation request period has ended.  If you applied for a yellow bus transportation by the due date, please check your email for bus stop and pick up/drop off time information.  If you have not applied for yellow bus transportation, but need to, please visit the WCPSS Transportation page to do so.
