Based on the latest information from the National Weather Service and Wilson County Emergency Management, which anticipates continued heavy rain and additional flooding, all students and staff will be in remote learning tomorrow - Fri., Nov. 13. Students should complete their classes and assignments from home. Staff members in our schools, departments and Central Office can work remotely from home or report to buildings if they feel it is safe to do so. Staff should contact their supervisor to make them aware of their plans for tomorrow. Please stay safe and heed all travel warnings. Meals will be available for curbside pickup at our 23 traditional schools from 11:30 to 1:30. This includes all schools except Daniels Learning Center and the two early colleges, but those students can go to any other school for meal pickup. The meal includes a lunch and a snack for today. We commend our School Nutrition Department for making this possible and hope that all of our students and staff have a great day of remote learning!
To help us consider different scenarios and plan for whatever is decided about the re-entry of schools in the fall, we have developed a survey for families. Your feedback is very important to us. Para ayudarnos a considerar diferentes escenarios y planificar lo que se decida sobre el reingreso de las escuelas en el otoño, hemos desarrollado una encuesta para familias. Su opinión es muy importante para nosotros.
The Wilson County Board of Education will meet for its regular meeting on Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Central Office Boardroom (113 NE Tarboro St.).
WCS now ranks 58th in the state for overall proficiency out of 115 school districts - up one ranking from last year! In 2015-16, our rank was 90th and in 2016-17 our rank increased slightly to 89th. For the last three school years, we've had the highest increase in proficiency OF ANY DISTRICT IN THE STATE!!!!
We are SO GRATEFUL to Wilson County Emergency Management, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, city and county crews, NCDOT, the Red Cross, our WCS Maintenance Department, news outlets and countless others who serve us selflessly during emergencies and inclement weather! Shout Out! to Superintendent Dr. Mills who always errs on the side of caution and seeks advisement from weather experts to keep us safe during inclement weather. He is responsible for the safety and the education of more than 11,000 students and 2,000 staff members - so he does not take the decision to close schools lightly.
THANK YOU to every individual, business or entity who made a financial or in-kind donation to WCS Operation Backpack! Your generous contribution enabled us to provide more than 3,000 backpacks to students in need.
Great coverage in The Wilson Times about our commitment to offering more STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, math and arts) options for our students so that they are better prepared for our STEM-centered world.
Parents of middle and high-school students can apply online for your child to receive free or reduced cost meals in our school cafeterias.
