First off, we still have about 10% of our families that have information in our data system, or InfoSnap, that needs to be updated or completed. Please check to see if your child was given an information packet about this. This is only affecting a small number of our students, but failure to complete these forms will result in these children not having access to our computers and digital resources that are benefiting their education. These forms include the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). It is highly important that we have your consent on these forms so your child can access and utilize our digital resources.
Lastly, I would just like to give you some calendar updates. School will be closed for students on January 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. Previously, we were scheduled to have early release days on February 27th and March 20th, but those days are now regular, full student days.
Feel free to give the school a call if you have any questions. I hope you enjoyed your weekend, and we look forward to seeing our Chargers tomorrow!
Charge Forward, Charge Together!

Catawba County Schools is excited to announce that we are expanding the mental health services that are available for our students. Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 school year, we will contract with Support, Inc. to provide School Based Therapy in all of our schools. Without ever having to leave the school campus, your child can work confidentially with an individual therapist on issues impacting their lives. Support, Inc. can begin the referral process for your child this summer and provide services without delay when school starts back. If your child has previously received school-based therapy services from another provider, you can transfer your services to Support, Inc. this summer as well. Please contact Maria Ballard, Director of Student Services, if you would like additional information or if you have any questions.
