Principal's Update 5/3/22

Good afternoon Cougar Country,

Time is running out to complete your back to school form.   If your child is planning to attend any summer learning opportunities then this information must be up to date. Also, all current transportation requests will be erased and families will need to complete this form to ensure transportation for next year. To locate this form please visit our school website at and find the “Back to School” Flyer under the quick links tab. If you still require assistance you can also reach us 919-560-3916.

This week in sports, Wednesday May 4, the softball team  will travel to Shepard for the championship game against Rogers Herr. The game will start at 5:00 pm. The cost for tickets is $7.00. Tickets can be purchased online. The link will be on Carrington ‘s Athletic webpage.  As a reminder you will need to set up an account in order to purchase a ticket.  Per Durham Public Schools Athletic Department, spectators are recommended to wear facemasks at athletic events. Spectators are limited to one small, clear bag.  Spectators who leave an athletic contest may not be allowed reentry into that contest. All parties must be present at the gate when validating your ticket(s).  Screenshots and or pictures of game tickets are not allowed.  Middle school students must be accompanied by an adult to enter and watch athletic events moving forward, this includes MS and HS athletics.  This is part of spectator and safety guidance for DPS athletic events.  The only exception is when middle school students have received invitations from the high schools.
