The Wake Forest Police Department Traffic Unit has informed us that students are going up the wrong way on N. College Street between North Avenue and W Pine Street in the mornings. If the violations continue, citations will be issued.


Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 8th is Picture Day. Students will report to the auxiliary gym for pictures. A schedule is posted on our website under the Yearbook tab.


North Carolina state immunization law requires that all students, including those participating in the virtual academy, are up to date with immunizations by the first day of school. Seniors are now required to have the meningococcal vaccine. You are encouraged to immediately check with your doctor to ensure your child is up to date and provide the school with an updated copy of the shot record. If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call 919-562-6300 to schedule an appointment at the Health and Human Services Northern Regional Center. Please do not delay in providing this information to our school. This is now past due. You can email the records to, or drop off a copy to the school main office.


Reminder masks are required – over your nose and under your chin. Thank you to those who wear your mask properly. Remember to put your mask back on after you eat your lunch. Your assistance in keeping everyone safe is much appreciated.


Beginning tomorrow, we will follow a revised new bell schedule. Follow this link to view the schedule. WFHS Bell Schedule 21-22



That’s all for today! Have a good evening! Go COUGARS!
