Welcome, parents!

Instructional Time Policy: We prioritize and value instructional time and need every minute to provide students quality instruction. For that reason, we ask that you ensure your child arrives at school on time and that you not check a student out early unless it is an emergency or for a scheduled appointment. Our office staff will not check students out between 3:20-3:45, as teachers will be completing important end of the day closing activities. We ask that you respect this policy, as it is to ensure we are maximizing instructional time for the benefit of your child.

Carolina Parent’s 2011-12 Family Guide to Special Needs Resources in the Triangle is now available online at: http://www.carolinaparent.com/publications/specialkids/index.php.
