New ELA Curriculum for Wake County 3rd Graders
Wake County is implementing a new ELA Curriculum for our 3rd graders called EL or Expeditionary Learning. EL is a rigorous curriculum that challenges students at a high level. 3rd grade teachers have gone to training sessions to begin the implementation of EL. If you would like to find out more about EL go to the EL video for parents.
Wake County Tobacco Products Policy
Several parents have asked what the Wake County Policy is for Tobacco products while on campus (Carpool, etc.) and while chaperoning field trips. In a nutshell, they are not allowed. Please review the linked details of the policy in the Student/Parent Handbook and in the WCPSS Policy Manual re: Tobacco-Free Environment.
