Wilkes Early College Started This Week

Principal Michelle Shepherd welcomed 290 students to Wilkes Early College High School for an awesome start to the 2017-2018 school year this week.  Wilkes County Schools first day of class is scheduled for August 28.  As a reminder:  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. Wilkes 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.  More information and meal prices can be found on the Wilkes County Schools website.

IRS Scams Continue All Year

According to Wilkesboro Police--it continues to happen all throughout the year. Many people receive calls from individuals claiming to be IRS agents or collection agents, here are some ways to tell if you’re being scammed:  Fraudulent callers often tell potential victims that tax is owed and must be paid immediately, or that they are entitled to a large tax refund. If they are unsuccessful the first time around, scammers will sometimes call back and attempt a different strategy. To avoid becoming a victim of these scams, it’s important for taxpayers to know the following:   If you owe taxes, the IRS will first contact you by mail, not by telephone; The IRS never asks for credit card, debit card, or prepaid card information over the phone; and The IRS never insists that you must pay your taxes using a specific payment method.
