IMPORTANT: Message from Superintendent Merrill Regarding Social Media

August 31, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our traditional calendar schools are not yet a week old and already we have experienced social media threats at two of our high schools. This is no way to start off a school year. Parents and guardians, please know and share with your students that we take all these threats seriously and investigate fully. Not only are consequences delivered by the schools, but where feasible law enforcement, at our urging, will seek to prosecute.

In our school community we do not consider social media threats humorous, cute, or insignificant. Please talk with your students and help them understand that they are creating a digital footprint that not only will speak for itself, but will also follow them as they continue their schooling and careers.  And yes, I ask you to monitor their social media. Young people are committing too many mistakes for which they do not fully appreciate and understand the consequences. Please help them with that understanding.
Now, let’s get back to why we come to school – to teach and to learn.


Thank you,

James Merrill

Dr. James G. Merrill
Wake County Public School System

School’s Back. Prepare for Traffic!

The new year brings new parents and students who are new to the traffic patterns around our school. Don’t worry though, it’s only bad the first week. Here are some basic ideas that can help keep tempers cool and accidents from happening during this traffic crisis:

  1. Courtesy, Courtesy, Courtesy. Be helpful. Let cars needing to turn left in front of you, but not too many. You need to be courteous to drivers behind you as well. If everyone would let one car in front of them, things will run a lot smoother.
  2. Apply “The Rule of Rights”. When entering the roads around the school, try to use as many right turns as possible. Try to avoid left turns. The more you can do this, the better your experience will be.
  3. Don’t wait until you are at the front of the school to drop your student off. There is a large sidewalk alongside the round-about. It’s OK if your kid has to walk a little. The more cars that can unload at the same time, the faster the line moves.
  4. Students – be prepared to leave the vehicle efficiently. Have all your stuff ready to go. Again, be courteous to all the cars behind you waiting.
  5. Please do not cut through the student or teacher parking lots. We need to protect these valuable people. We love our kids and our teachers.
  6. Plan for a Delay. Try to leave a little bit early and know that you’ll be getting to your final destination a little bit late.

As the penguins of Madagascar say “Smile and wave boys. Smile and wave”. Be friendly to each other. Pay it forward. We’re all in this together and a little help goes along way.
