Solar Eclipse

The 2024 Great North American Eclipse will happen on Monday, April 8, 2024. In North Carolina, the partial eclipse will begin around 1:58pm and peak at approximately 3:15pm when the moon obscures about 82% of the sun.  Wake County Public School student and employee safety is of the utmost importance during this experience.  As such, it is important to recognize that it is never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays, even when the sun is partially obscured. 

Please be mindful of the eclipse as you are driving through the carpool line during dismissal.  We will be sharing safety information with our students; please take some time to reiterate this information at home as well.


Yearbook Orders - Deadline Extended

The PTA has extended the date for Yearbook orders until April 8th.  The code is YB28076.  The cost is $20.00.  Visit:


Better World Day - Red Cross Supply Collection

The fifth graders are collecting emergency supplies for the Red Cross for our Better World Day service project. Items suggested: new socks, first aid kit items, nonperishable items, batteries, flashlights, toiletries, etc. We are collecting all items on May 3rd during morning carpool.  The Carpool Casanova will help us collect our items to make it a fun event! 🙂 If students have items that they want to turn in ahead of time or if they ride the bus, they can bring their items to the collection boxes in the cafeteria or the front lobby. Thank you in advance for your support!

We want the outside of HES to reflect what a wonderful school community lies inside, so we're hosting a clean up day and need your help! The front of the school property is in need of some good old fashioned yard work and we're in need of volunteers to make that happen!

The more folks that help, the faster we'll get done! Each slot notes what tools/items are needed. If you are able to bring these items from home, it would be greatly appreciated. If you don’t have something, but want to help, just note it on the sign up. In addition, if you are only able to stay for a portion of the time, please note the time period you can help when you sign up.
