WCPSS bus rider families are now able to use a free bus tracking system called Here Comes the Bus.   Here Comes the Bus translates GPS data into an easy to use customizable map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone. It allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop.  You can sign up for Here Comes the Bus at https://herecomesthebus.com/getting-started/.  You will need the district code and your student’s ID number to sign up. The WCPSS school code is 67500. For your smartphone or tablet, download the Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play.

 

 

WCPSS created an invaluable new resource for your child to ensure that he or she is successful in Math 1! The NC Math 1 Student Support Site is designed for you to help your child stay on track while offering you resources to help him or her with homework.   We encourage you to take advantage of the NC Math 1 Student Support Site via your student’s login to our Canvas website. Once you have logged in to Canvas, click on the tile that says "NC Math 1 Student Support Site" to access the support resources.   Detailed information was sent home with all Math I students.

 


This is just a reminder regarding carpool.  Please drop off students prior to 8:15 am in carpool located at the back of the school.  After 8:15am students are considered tardy and should be checked in at the main office with a parent.  All check-outs should conclude before 2:30pm.   Please do not drop off students in front of the cafeteria or by the trailers for safety reasons.

 

 

Have a great week COUGARS!

 

Yours,
