Welcome to the Wake Forest High School website. As you explore these pages, you will recognize that the Home of the Cougars is steeped with pride, a tradition of excellence, and a consistent expectation that WFHS will graduate students who are prepared to transition to their adult lives in the 21st century.
Attention Seniors: If you would like to design your Senior Class Tee shirt, please contact Mrs. Newhouse in room 214. All tee shirt designs must be submitted to Mrs. Newhouse no later than Friday, September 12th. Seniors will vote to select their favorite design from those submitted on time.
WCPSS has now put the bus routes for 2014-15 on their website, http://www.wcpss.net/school-directory/bus-routes/588.html. Look for your school on this page and click the link to find the school’s bus routes. Find the intersection nearest your residence. Be at the stop 10 minutes prior to pick up. Families that do not have access to the internet should check their bus routes with their school.
it is imperative that students know the bus number that coincides with their route. We communicate by bus number and at the end of the day, we do not have the ability to look up stops for students while we are dismissing. Here is that list of bus numbers:
Bus 1649 AM/ 1651 PM
We will have this posted around the school as well.
We encourage parents to review bus safety and their family bus plan with their children to get the new school year off to a great start.
NOTE: Wake Forest High School does not schedule routes or assign students to routes. If you have questions, please contact Customer Support at 919-805-3030 or www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation.
This event is for seniors and their parents to assist with planning the transition from high school to post-high school. Whether a student is planning to attend a four-year college, two-year college, enlisting in the military, apprenticeship program, or employment plans after graduation; this is an important time in your life, so stay focused and organized as you begin planning for the next chapter in your life! Look forward to seeing you in the auditorium on the 11th of September!
The Wake County Public School system (WCPSS) does not carry medical insurance to cover students’ accidental injuries or illnesses. A voluntary student accident insurance policy is available for purchase on an individual basis and covers accidental injuries that occur during school-sponsored activities. If you do not already have insurance for your child, WCPSS has contracted with Bollinger Insurance Solutions to offer coverage. Application and purchase information can be obtained from Bollinger’s website www.BollingerSchools.com. In addition, parents’ insurance also may provide coverage for injuries to their child(ren).
Effective August 1, 2014 parents can enroll their child online at www.BollingerSchools.com. Student Accident Insurance options available for the 2014-15 school year include:
School Time Only (includes all sports except football)
24 hour Only (includes all sports except football)
Unable to attend Cougar Camp? Here is your chance to get all of the vital information that you missed. The links below will provide you with copies of our parent and student packets from this event. Feel free to call with any questions.
New for 2014-15 - All parents enrolling a child/children for school at any WCPSS school after May 30 must request transportation at the time of enrollment in order to receive bus transportation. This will become a part of the enrollment process. A few things to note:
*Current students that are receiving bus transportation need to do nothing. You will be grandfathered in and receive transportation (this includes 8th grade students that will continue riding the bus to WFHS next year)
*Current students that are not currently receiving bus transportation must fill out a form to request bus transportation. You can do this at www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation. Follow the prompts to fill out a service request.
*Students that are pre-enrolled for next year, regardless of the date this was done, and are not currently a WCPSS student, need to go online to www.wcpss.net/parents/transportationand fill out the service request.
*When filling out the online form or providing the information for the registrar at the time of enrollment, address and school must be correct and you must be eligible for transportation (as before, transfers do not come with transportation).
*For Wake Forest High School, students that have registered prior to June 21 will be guaranteed that they will have bus service on the first day of school. After this date, transportation will do all they can to provide service on day 1 but cannot guarantee this.
*Wake Forest High School does not assign routes, manage drivers, or arrange pick up times. We also cannot approve a student getting on any bus other than the one they are assigned to. For transportation related questions:
The centralized transportation phone number is 919-805-3030. This is the phone number designated to receive any parent inquiries. The number will initially record to an automated voice message, then monitored by transportation phone center staff members and relayed to the appropiate transportation center.
All parents/guardians are now able to utilize the required online request form – http://www.wcpss.net/bus-support - in order to request the start of bus transportation for new students or request transportation to their new address if they have moved and are still eligible for transportation.
The transportation website (http://www.wcpss.net/transportation) continues to be updated, and is an excellent source of information for parents and staff. It includes bus routes, bus updates, FAQs and transportation policy and guidelines.
You may go to http://www.wcpss.net/routes to review bus routes. The routes listed are continually updated, with the most current routing information. Please feel free to contact your Area Transportation Manager, if you notice any issue.
The links below will provide you with answers to questions that you may have as you start this process. Again, current students that are receiving bus transportation need to do nothing. You will be grandfathered in and receive transportation (this includes 8th grade students that will continue riding the bus to WFHS next year)
