School Year Calendar Changes

A list of calendar changes for the 2017-2018 school year has been approved by the Board of Education. Here are some of the highlights.

February 19th-Now a school day

March 9th-Now a full day

March 30th-Now a school day/End of 3rd nine-weeks grading period

April 11th-Report Cards


We have finalized the plan for graduation for the Class of 2018. We will hold graduation on the football field on Friday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m.

Field Trips

Field trips were a topic of discussion at the School Improvement Team meeting earlier this year. The team decided that April 27th would be the cut off date for second semester field trips. This will allow us to maximize instructional time without interruptions before exams. It was also decided that we will use a standard field trip permission slip beginning second semester. The permission slip will be signed by the parent and the teachers of each student.

Athletic Gate Duty

The athletic duty sign up sheets have been placed in the Staff Canvas page. If you need to change a duty, please let me or Coach Harnly know. Thanks for your help with this!


You may have noticed that EVAAS has now been added to the NC Ed Could. All of your growth information for the 2016-2017 school year has now been updated. This information can be very useful. We sent a teacher from each of your departments to the EVAAS training last week. They will share information at your next department meeting. In the meantime, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Staff Handbook

The Staff Handbook can be found in Canvas. Please review this before the start of school. The Staff Canvas page also contains videos and step by step instructions for Educator's Handbook, Aesop, Travel Tracker, etc...
