  • Military Connected Student Information
    Parents and guardians, if you have a student in your household who has an immediate family member connected with the U. S. military, please take a few minutes to complete a short form (ENGLISH | SPANISH.) This includes family members serving on active duty, in the National Guard and Reserves, Retired Military, Disabled Veterans or Civil Service Employees. The information on the short survey form is being collected on behalf of the North Carolina General Assembly to ensure that the unique needs of military-connected students are met. We would appreciate your participation.

  • Grad Tickets Graduation Tickets
    · The only guarantee is that each student will receive 5 tickets to graduation.
    · Every person (except the graduate) who attends will need a ticket to enter.
    Extra Tickets
    · There is no guarantee for extra tickets due to limited seating in the auditorium.

          o  Student or parent must come in person to the office to fill out the ticket request form
          o NO requests will be honored via email or phone
          o Requests may be made in the front office from Monday, April 27 until Friday, May 8 at 4:00pm.   Parents may sign up for the extra tickets between 8am and 4pm.  Students may sign up for tickets between 8am and 8:15am and between 3:25pm and 4pm.  The list will be reviewed and as many extra tickets as possible will be given.
