Eligibility for Advanced Math

  • Current NC legislation (SL 2020-3) includes a provision for students not initially placed in advanced math courses to request the administration of the End of Grade (EOG) tests for the mathematics grade or course in which the student was enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year, solely for the purpose of determining math placement for the 2020-2021 school year according to Cabarrus County Schools criteria.

    If your child has not been placed in an advanced math course, and you wish for your student to be included in this opportunity, you may request an EOG assessment by completing the EOG/EOC Advanced Math Assessment Request Form. Testing will take place at H.E. Winkler Middle School this summer.  Parents will be contacted via email for testing details.

    If you have any questions, please contact Assistant Principal Dr. Courtney Smith at Courtney.Smith@Cabarrus.k12.nc.us or by calling the school.

School Nutrition Applications 2019-2020

  • School Nutrition Applications are now available.

    Please note that School Nutrition no longer sends out applications to either homes or in packets the first day of school.


    A postcard has been sent to every registered household in Cabarrus County Schools in the month of July that advises to apply online for the upcoming school year. The application can accessed by clicking here.

    If you do not have access to the internet, the public library or smart phones are additional avenues to apply online. We have chosen to have a limited number of applications available this year to the cafeteria manager only.


    Postcards will also be given to the front office staff to give out to newly registered students and others that ask for the information. The student ID number is required on the applications so please ensure it is recorded on the application/postcard. If you are not sure of your student's id number, please contact the school.

    The school should be your first place of contact on 704 260 6490. If you cannot contact the school, please call Gloria Cunningham  704.784.5136 or by email.
