We commit: Enloe Student Services supports the WCPSS Commitment to Racial Equity: "We cannot be silent in the face of racism in our community or beyond. Our Core Beliefs compel us to see, to understand and to interrupt racism in all its forms."
Summer hours: Because of the continuing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Student Services will operate under limited hours during the summer. We will not be open for drop-in visits. Access to email will be limited, so while we will strive for our usual response within 48 hours, we appreciate your flexibility and patience.
Student pick-up and drop-off: Click on the image at left to get the full information regarding procedures for student return and retrieval of items. The procedures are different than the senior event, so please read this document in its entirety. A few highlights: Drop-off and pick-up are now separate events, and they cannot be combined; students must complete the Google Form by July 3 (if they have already completed it, they do not have to do so again); and there are no assigned time slots.

Housing help: A program through WakePrevent has begun that aims to keep families in hotels if the family has lost income/job because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The family has to be living in a hotel at the time it makes contact with this program; has to have experienced a loss of income/job due to Covid-19; and has to have children who are enrolled in WCPSS or a charter school or younger than school-age. Families may contact 919-856-5661 or email@example.com. Families need to make contact themselves as they will need to answer questions during an intake process. For more information, click here and here.

Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-De, Q-R: Ms. Greene
Di-Jh, P: Mr. Small: student request form;
parent request form; during the school shutdown, use email
Ji-O: Ms. Russell
S-Z: Ms. Kearney
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
This tutorial will help you make the most out of using our site!

Warning of a scam: The WCPSS school system wants parents and students to be aware of a college admissions assistance program targeting area students. At least three area students have received a letter directing them to a website where they can sign up for a college admissions presentation. A counselor who researched the program found that families were being persuaded to sign up for a paid program and provide their financial information to get assistance. There are 71 open complaints about this company with the Better Business Bureau. Please remember: Financial aid information is FREE, and families should not pay for any type of program that “sells” financial aid advice or guidance.
