Family Survey

Wake County Public Schools is administering a District Wide Family Survey from Monday, April 8 through Friday, May 17. This survey provides families the opportunity to provide valuable feedback, and it is a high-quality data source for school planning and School Improvement. Please help us by completing the survey online. A high response rate makes the data much more meaningful. The survey should take approximately 7 minutes to complete.

Safety Reminder

We have seen an increase in parents dropping off their children along Apex Barbecue Road - on both sides of the road. Students dropped off this way have sometimes demonstrated some unsafe behaviors. This is very dangerous, and we do not want to see any children get hurt. For students' safety, only students walking from home are allowed to walk to school. Thank you!
