Next School Year Info
As a reminder, we are returning to multi-track next year and will have students on Tracks 1, 2, 3, and 4. While many families have requested to switch to track 4 or remain following the track 4 calendar, we are not able to grant all of those requests because we have to function on all 4 tracks and follow class size mandates. I appreciate your understanding.
I've had to collapse some classes on Tracks 2 and 3 in order to adjust for Virtual Academy and Rolesville Middle collapsing Track 2.
Please be sure to locate your child's track for next year using this link: https://www.wcpss.net/domain/18821
If you are not returning to Harris Creek next school year and haven't let Ms. Edgreen know, please send her an email at email@example.com to let her know where your child will be attending school next year. Be sure to include your child's name, what grade they are going into and what school they will be attending. We need to have accurate student records to be sure we have the appropriate number of staff at the start of the school year and have sufficient time to get your child's student records to the new school.
If you have a rising Kindergartener scheduled to come to Harris Creek, you can find their track and staggered entry date here: https://www.wcpss.net/domain/18924
Supply Lists for 21-22 will be updated and added to the school website by Monday, June 21.
Looking forward to finishing this year strong and bringing in our new year with more normalcy!
