A few reminders:

  • The tardy bell rings at 7:55am. Please make sure your student is in the building by 7:55am. Students not in class by 7:55am will receive tardy documentation.
  • 11:30am is the halfway point in the school day. If your student checks in after this time or checks out before this time, he/she will be counted absent for the entire day.
  • All students must be in uniform daily. See the image below for uniform expectations.
  • NC Law requires one dose of Tdap and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine for students entering the 7th grade. Students without these two shots will not be allowed to attend school after September 22, 2021.
