Virtual Academy Updates for October 22, 2021

Hello A.B. Combs Virtual Academy Families,


We wanted to provide you a few important updates regarding our Virtual Academy students.


3rd and 4th Grade Virtual Academy families: The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) will be administered this academic year to all third grade and fourth grade students in the Wake County Public School System. The data collected from this universal screening is used to aid in gifted identification as well as to determine your child’s area of academic strengths and areas of growth. Please complete this survey no later than Wednesday, Oct 27th, to let us know if you would like your child to participate in this assessment. You may choose for your child to take the assessment over three days, Nov 3rd, 4th, and 5th or Nov 8th. 


Supply Pick-Up: All Virtual Academy families are asked to come by Combs on Tuesday, November 2nd to pick up 2nd quarter supplies for your child.  The office will be open from 8am-3pm.  Supply bags will be labeled with your child’s name at the front entrance to the school.


School Pictures: Virtual Academy students are invited to come to Combs for fall picture day on Thursday, November 4th from 11:30-12:30 to have your child’s picture taken.  These school pictures are the ones that will be used in the school yearbook.


Best wishes for a wonderful weekend!
