Due to the potential inclement weather from the Tropical Storm Watch for Eastern North Carolina, tomorrow, August 30, will be an early release day for students. Students will be dismissed at 1 PM. On Thursday, August 31 and Friday, September 1, we will be having remote instruction days. Principals and Teachers will share more details about the remote instruction days with students tomorrow. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.

Help us improve parent engagement!

We are asking parents to complete the Tyrrell County Schools Title I Parent Engagement Survey so that we can improve on actively involving parents and the community, and strengthen parent engagement within the school district and/or at the child’s school.

The survey is quick and easy to complete, and your feedback will be greatly appreciated. Your responses will help us to better understand your needs and priorities, and to develop new and innovative ways to engage parents in their children's education.
