Upcoming Events for Parents
Back 2 School Festival Quiet Opening
The Back 2 School Fair will be this Saturday, August 10th at Watauga High School from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. There will be "quiet opening" from 9:00-10:00 am for students with disabilities and their families. Please contact either Mike Marcela at firstname.lastname@example.org or Renee Battle at email@example.com or via phone at 828-264-7190 to request an invitation to the quiet opening. We will respond quickly so you will be all set to attend the opening.
A quiet opening is designed to be a calmer, smaller event so that students who have sensory issues or get easily overwhelmed can easily "shop" and enjoy the Back to School fair. We will also have a "quiet room" in place for parents and students who need a space to cool down and regroup and refocus during the fair. We look forward to seeing you there!

- Notices about upcoming EC Parent Advisory Council meetings and parent trainings;
- A section of important procedural information for parents
- A list of various parent resources covering many areas of disabilities
- A calendar of important upcoming school and district events
One of our goals is to continually to strive to develop and strengthen our relationships and our collaborative efforts with our parents and community members.
