CARPOOL
We appreciate your cooperation with the carpool traffic pattern.  I have attached another copy for your review as we continue to ask all drivers to follow the established pattern to maintain campus safety. SoutheastRaleighMagnetHigh Traffic Pattern.pdf    Please remember to regularly review our SRMHS school website for updates and the latest school information at https://www.wcpss.net/southeastraleighhs.  
 
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL
Students should arrive on campus no earlier than 6:45 AM. Breakfast will be served from 6:55- 7:15 AM. All food must be eaten in the cafeteria. Students may not bring food or drinks into the building to be consumed before school. No restaurant food can be brought in or delivered to schools. Students should wait in supervised areas and classrooms and stand so others can walk through the lobby easily. Upon dismissal, all students should go directly to the buses or wait outside under the overhang by the carpool line. Students staying after school for extracurricular activities must report by 2:45 PM to their teacher/advisor and remain there until picked up. Students who do not follow these procedures will face disciplinary actions. These rules are for your safety and the safety of others at Southeast Raleigh Magnet  High School.
 
ELECTRONIC DEVICES- BYOD
Electronic devices, such as ear buds, listening devices, mp3 players and cell phones are allowed during the academic day (7:20 AM - 2:30 PM) when appropriate.  During class time, cell phones should only be used for instructional purposes as directed by a staff member. Teachers have the flexibility to establish classroom rules and procedures for use in support of BYOD (bring your own device) to enhance instruction.  Students must adhere to the individual classroom expectations and procedures for electronic devices as a established by the staff member. Students are expected to apply classroom rules to electronic device use as they do all other classroom rules and procedures. Students must make responsible choices for use during transitions and in emergency situations.
 
VISITORS
Parents are welcome to our school at any time and for any event. In order for school personnel to give parents the attention that they deserve, it is best that an appointment be made before appearing at the school for a meeting. Whether you have an appointment or not, please check into the office when visiting during school hours so that we may greet you.
