    We know that many are unfamiliar with our building and our expectations. We will have staff on duty throughout the building beginning at 8:00 am to assist with getting students to class safely. First core teachers will also share their room number with students this week to help them get prepared. 

    Please click here to review the arrival and dismissal procedures.

    We have expanded our learning expectations to include in person learning. Please click here to read the Learning Expectations for Plan B. 

    This is a lot of information, but it is important information to share ahead of time so families can read together and be prepared for all of the new expectations for attending school during a pandemic. We plan to provide time for reviewing these procedures with students next week. 

    We will have information posted and share bus routes with families by the end of the week. Don’t forget to update new phone numbers and email addresses with our front office at 919-776-8441 if anything changes so you continue to receive important updates.
