NC law requires all students entering the 7th grade to have one dose of Tdap and one dose of Meningococcal conjugate vaccine.  Important: You will have to submit a copy of your child's immunizations before he or she can enroll in Public School.  According to the law, after 30 days your student will not be able to attend school, without these vaccinations.


Dear Parents,  Burke County Public Schools will administer end-of-year tests to our middle school students beginning Friday, May 25, 2018. 

Middle School Students will take the following assessments:
        1. End of Grade (EOG) Science (8th)- online
        2. EOG Reading and Math (6th-8th)-online
        3. NC Final Exam (NCFE) Science (6th-7th) and Social Studies (6th -8th)-               online
        4. End Course (EOC) Math 1 (some 8th graders)-online

We are asking that as you begin scheduling vacations, that you avid trips during the end-of-year testing dates and weeks before to allow students to prepare for these upcoming assessments.
