North Carolina's student immunization schedule includes vaccines such as polio and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR). Kindergarten, seventh, and twelfth graders require certain vaccines that can be found here>>> https://immunization.dph.ncdhhs.gov/schools/k-12.htm Make an appointment with your health care provider to get back on track today. Don’t have a health care provider? Buncombe County Health and Human Services can help. Visit buncombecounty.org/immunize for more information on their walk-in hours and appointment scheduling.

North Windy Ridge Intermediate (NWRI) students took a trip to Biltmore Estate to enjoy the scenery and learn about local history. The students had a busy day touring the large facilities, the farm and the home, and learning about horticulture, architecture, and local history. They got to learn about horse drawn carriages, metalworking, looms and weaving, and see the estate and a variety of farm animals. “It’s history in our backyard,” said NWRI Principal Brent Wise. “Every student should see it at some point in their lives. It’s all about making connections with our local history.” The school’s first trip to Biltmore, the NWRI PTO raised the funds for this trip that the students won’t soon forget.
