Checking out students/Picture I.D.

posted Dec 5, 2018, 9:00 AM by Kimberly Ward

Please be sure to bring in a picture id to the office when checking students out.  This will help speed things up as well as help us with providing a very safe check out system. 

We have had several people picking up students in the front office right before dismissal.  Our school policy is to have students needing to leave early to be picked up and checked out by 2:00.  This will keep parents from getting into the car rider and bus traffic as well as alleviating extra people in the front office at dismissal time.

Change in School start and ending times

posted Oct 10, 2018, 10:11 AM by Kimberly Ward

Due to recent instructional time missed for inclement weather, we will be adding 15 minutes to the school day to prepare our students to meet the necessary state requirements for promotion.

Effective November 1, 2018, students at Whiteville Primary School will begin school at 8:00 a.m. instead of 8:10 a.m. Students arriving after 8:00 a.m. will be considered tardy to school.

Also, students will be released at 2:50 p.m. instead of 2:45 p.m. Students who ride a school bus after school will still arrive at their destination at the same time. Car rider students will be approximately 5 minutes later.

Once again, beginning on Thursday, November 1, please note the changes to the instructional day at Whiteville Primary. Our new school hours are 8:00 a.m. – 2:50 p.m.

Thank you for making accommodations for the change in schedule. Please feel free to contact the school if you have a question about the change in schedule – Whiteville Primary School (910)642-4119.
