Welcome to Griggs Elementary School


Dr. W.T. Griggs Elementary School
Griggs Elementary School is located in Poplar Branch, NC, and is home to approximately 255 students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. 

Griggs Elementary School was among six Title I schools across the state of North Carolina who was recognized this year for our Sustained Student Achievement.  For the past three years, our students have demonstrated growth each year as measured on the End-of-Grade test in the areas of Reading, Mathematics, and Science.
Parents are very involved in their children's education and volunteers are always welcome at our school.  A Parent Resource Center was opened at our school to provide access to computers and reading materials.

    Important Information for Parents of Kindergarten Students

    Children who start kindergarten on or after July 1, 2015 will be required to have additional vaccines to protect them from serious diseases. Kindergartners will now be required to have two doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine if they do not have a history of disease documented by a health care provider and the 4th dose of polio vaccine must be given after 4 years of age and before entering school for the first time.

    Thanks to the success of vaccines we don’t see these diseases very often; however they do still exist and can cause serious illness, disabilities and even death. Don’t let your child go unprotected. Vaccines are safe and effective. The most common side effects are pain and swelling at the site where the shot was given. Some people may experience a headache and fever. Serious reactions to vaccines are very rare.

    Talk with your child’s health care provider or the local health department about vaccines they may need to be protected and for school entry. This is a great chance to get your child to the doctor for a yearly health care visit.

    Your child will have to provide proof of vaccination on the first day of school. Please remember to bring your child’s shot record for school entry. You can get your child’s shot record from his/her doctor or the local health department.
