Important Senior Specific Information:


North Carolina state immunization law requires that all students are up to date with immunizations by the first day of school.  For us, this is August 28.   There are no extensions for this date.  Seniors are now required to have the meningococcal vaccine.  Also, for Seniors a 2nd meningococcal vaccine may be required for students by 17 years of age or entering 12th grade. Please consult with your doctor to see if you meet this requirement. You are encouraged to immediately check with your doctor to ensure your child is up to date and provide the school with an updated copy of the shot record.  If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call 919-562-6300 to schedule an appointment at the Health and Human Services Northern Regional Center.  Do not delay in providing this information to our school.  You can email the records to, fax to 919-670-4212, or drop off records in the main office, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.


Seniors may still submit Reduced Course Load Applications and Midyear Graduation Applications.  Both applications are accessible here.  This is an extension of the original deadline.  All applications should be submitted by Friday, August 25.  Submit applications via email to Ms. Weaver at or drop off in the front office, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.


Seniors are reminded to complete the task of getting your senior portrait for the yearbook.  Go here to book online or call 1-800-343-5735. This is a busy time for Prestige.  Continue to call if there are no appointments available.
