Hello, this is Patti Hamler, Principal of Wake Forest High School.

Happy New Year 2022!

The Fall Semester Final Exam Schedule is posted on the school's website in the "School News" section.  Included in this information is the Early Release form that students will need each day of testing if they will be leaving at the conclusion of the testing session. Students without the signed form will remain on campus in a group study hall until bus dismissal.  Note that students will need a separate signed form for each day as applicable; forms must be printed out and turned in each day; no electronic forms will be accepted.  Forms are also available at the Attendance Window this week.  Classroom teachers will be letting students know the specifics about where to report on testing days.


Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits as soon as possible. By submitting a qualifying application, families will also support the district in qualifying for additional funds to support students and learning! Also, the NC Department of Health & Human Services is collecting student free and reduced lunch and attendance data from WCPSS to determine any additional Pandemic Electronic Benefits (P-EBT) that will be issued in the coming months! By not applying for these meal benefits, you will miss the potential opportunity to receive direct P-EBT funds for your family!

Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2022 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra education funding next school year. Also, this ensures your student is covered for the first few weeks of school next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits can be found at Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535. 


A reminder to all families, masks are still required at WFHS.  A special shout out to those who continue to follow guidelines.  We appreciate everyone in keeping us all safe.

That’s all for today! Go COUGARS!
