From WCPSS: Important: Grading Guidelines

We have developed grading guidelines that align with NC State Board of Education revised grading policy.

These guidelines are designed to provide clarity and understanding for students and families around how grades will be determined for the second half of the 2019-20 school year. They address grades, feedback and promotion decisions. We also have provided summaries of these guidelines with key dates, timelines and checklists.

Grades 6-8  | Summary of GuidelinesFull Guidelines

Grades 9-11 | Summary of Guidelines, Full Guidelines

These guidelines are based on guidance from the NC Department of Public Instruction. Please contact your child’s teacher with questions.

Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.


From WCPSS: Please take a quick survey on your remote learning experience

We would like for families to provide feedback on their students’ remote learning experience so far. This will be the first of two surveys this semester designed to help us improve remote learning. Please complete the survey by May 20:


Memorial Day Holiday

Monday, May 25th is Memorial Day. This day is a holiday for staff and students. There will be no remote learning on this day.


Reminder: All Playground and Athletic Fields are Closed

Due to local and state directives, all school facilities including all playground and athletic fields are closed. For the safety of our community, we ask that your family please adhere to the guidelines.


Food Collection and Distribution

Anyone who needs food assistance should visit to find the food distribution site nearest you. If you cannot get food from one of these sites, please contact someone at your child’s school, so we can try to provide assistance. We are continuing to add new food assistance locations and options, so please check this page regularly for updates.
