Wilkes County Schools and the Wilkes County Public Library are partnering to support students' ongoing education with an initiative called NC Cardinal Student Access. This program will create a library card and access for all students. This access will allow them to borrow and digitally access materials from their local library collection including hard copies of books, e-books, access to research data bases and other online materials. The library will be using the School System's student ID number to create the access. Click the Read More link below to view additional information and locate an opt-out form.

Elementary and middle schools in Wilkes County will continue to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2017-18 school year which provides free daily meals for all students in attendance. Our high schools are no longer eligible to participate, so they will be transitioned to the traditional free and reduced lunch program. This program allows eligible students to receive breakfast and lunch meal service either free or at a reduced cost. High school students not eligible will be required to pay for their school meals.
