FEBRUARY 5 SWEETHEART DANCE POSTPONED

 

As you are aware, the COVID cases are on the rise in the community as well as our school. The staff and student health and safety are of the utmost importance to the GHHS administration. Due to the current COVID numbers we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Sweetheart dance. We are hopeful that we will be able to host an all-student body event later in the spring if conditions are conducive.

 


 

COVID TESTING NOTE

 

We now have asymptomatic COVID testing available on our campus on Wednesdays before class starts.  Here’s the link.  If you’re interested in having your student tested, they should be on campus by 6:30am. You can find more information about testing here.


 

RETURN TO SCHOOL COVID NOTES

 

Here’s the most recent info on returning to school:

  • We need to all be tight with our 3 W’s right now:

  • Students are not allowed to bring backpacks or large bags into games.
  • Spectators must observe  WCPSS Dress Code policy. Spectators not following policy may be asked to leave campus. 

 


 

 

TRANSPORTATION

 

Due to a severe driver shortage, caused primarily by the impacts of COVID-19, some bus routes may not run. Please check the status of your child’s bus daily at www.wcpss.net/busupdate

 

If the status of your child's bus route is "No Driver Available/Route Uncovered," you will need to make alternate transportation arrangements. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

 

If your student is returning to in-person learning from Virtual Academy and needs to ride the bus, please request transportation as soon as possible. If you have any questions, contact Nina Scott-Emuakpor

Meal Benefits

Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits as soon as possible. By submitting a qualifying application, families will also support the district in qualifying for additional funds to support students and learning! Also, the NC Department of Health & Human Services is collecting student free and reduced lunch and attendance data from WCPSS to determine any additional Pandemic Electronic Benefits (P-EBT) that will be issued in the coming months! By not applying for these meal benefits, you will miss the potential opportunity to receive direct P-EBT funds for your family!

Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2022 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra education funding next school year. Also, this ensures your student is covered for the first few weeks of school next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits can be found at www.wcpss.net/meals. Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at MySchoolApps.com. Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535.
