This year is starting with 9 weeks of Remote Learning. Students will be taught virtually online using CANVAS learning platform to post instructional materials. Microsoft Teams and Zoom for Education will be used for video conferencing. The first day of school is Monday, August 17.
Log-In Information: It is critical that students know how to access their WSFCS email and Home Base Apps. Parents should also have access to Parent Portal to check grades. Go here to sign up if you need to. https://www.wsfcs.k12.nc.us/Page/769
Contact Information Updates: It is also critical that we have correct email and phone numbers for parents so that we can communicate with you during Remote Learning. Call the main office or email Ms. Dones to update your information. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Remote Learning Bell Times: Unlike the spring, this fall our students will follow their class bell schedule and log on at the designated class times to have face-to-face instruction from their teachers. During remote learning we will be adjusting our bell schedule to start one hour later. Visit our website under the Students Tab for the class schedule for each grade level.
