Student Agenda
All students will receive an agenda during homeroom in school.  Agendas will be required to check out materials in the media center, as well as be used as a pass when students have to travel through the school during class times.  Should a student lose their agenda, they will be responsible for paying $7.00 for a replacement.

Driver’s Education
Due to the fact that the NC Legislature has passed the Graduated Driver License Law, it is to the advantage of the student to take driver education at 14½.  Completing the driver education requirement is the first step in the Graduated Driver License Law.  After the completion of driver education and when the student has reached 15 years of age he/she is eligible to apply for a Learner’s Permit through the NC Division of Motor Vehicles.  The student must retain this permit for one year during which time he/she must drive only when under the supervision of the approved licensed driver.  If a student waits until 15 or older to take the driver education course, he/she must still apply for a learner’s permit and drive under its provisions for one year.
