School Announcements

  • Over the remainder of the school year, the department of Student Support will be hosting four workshops held at Monroe High School, Porter Ridge High School, and Sun Valley High School. We will continue to utilize various data points to steer the workshop offerings. Our goal for these events is to provide education and resources around specific topics as a way to support and strengthen our community. With this goal in mind, we hope that all schools will advertise this opportunity to their community. Each school host site was selected based on the area where the greatest need was demonstrated, but each location serves as a hub and is open to the entire UCPS community. Our families continue to demonstrate a need for more support and we hope to strengthen the bond between home, school, and community resources. Each workshop will be formatted the same. Each one will be one hour, which includes 40 minutes of sharing resources and information and 20 minutes for Q and A. They will run from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm in each school's media center with a combination of UCPS professionals and/or community professionals. We intend to record these events to be an ongoing resource for families. We are also planning support for Spanish-speaking families.

  • Current 6th Grade Vaccine Requirements: Important message for current 6th grade students regarding vaccination requirements prior to the 7th grade year. North Carolina Immunization Law requires a booster dose of Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis (Tdap), and initial Meningococcal C vaccine (MCV) for all 7th grade students.

    If your child does not currently have evidence of these vaccines, please contact your child's healthcare provider to obtain them. Following the administration of the vaccines, please submit a copy of the record to our School Nurse through the Front Office this school year. This documentation must be obtained within 30 days of the start of the 2022-2023 school year to meet this school enrollment requirement.

    Thank you for your timely attention to this matter. If you have any questions, the School Nurse will certainly be available to you as a resource. Please contact Nurse Trotter at (704)296-3009, ext. 2574.

  • Important Information for Current 6th Graders Regarding Tdap and Meningococcal Vaccine:


    North Carolina law mandates that all children entering the 7th grade are required to have a Tdap and meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Tdap covers your child for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, also known as whooping cough. Meningococcal vaccine is given to help prevent meningitis. Please bring in proof from your health care provider with the date the vaccines were given. 

    For complete details and explanations, please review the website for NC general statutes 130A-157.

    Please contact the school nurse if there are any questions.
