The neighborhoods behind our school have reported an increase in inappropriate student behavior both before and after school – jumping fences, trespassing in yards and leaving trash in yards. They have also reported an increase in parents using their neighborhood as a secondary carpool. Only students who live in those neighborhoods and are walkers should be exiting campus via the back path. If your child walks to school via the back path, please talk with him/her about respecting the property of the homes. This area is posted by the City of Raleigh and the police department will be ticketing violators.
Enjoy the 3 day weekend Wildcats!
