10 Minute Extension of School Day
BOE Regular Meeting: At its meeting on October 1st, the Tyrrell County Board of
Education approved extending the school day by 10 minutes beginning October 15th.
This action was taken in order to make up four of the six days lost as a result of Hurricane
Florence. The extension was determined to be less disruptive than making modifications
in the existing school calendar. By making this modification to the school day, the system
now has some additional days in case schools have to be closed for inclement weather
during the winter months.
