    Since this school year will begin like no other, I wanted to make sure that my

    contact information is easily accessible!  I can always be reached by email: 

    nderby@currituck.k12.nc.us.  The phone number for Jarvisburg Elementary is

    491-2050 and Griggs Elementary is 453-2700.  I will continue to work with

    students and parents during our remote learning period.  Please do not hesitate

    to contact me for any reason 8:00am-3:30pm.  



    My name is Nicole Derby and I am excited to be starting my 7th year as School Counselor! Just a little about myself:  I graduated from Currituck County High School and went on to attend UNC (Go Heels!), Elizabeth City State University, and Capella University where I earned my Master's in School Counseling.  I have four children.  My oldest son is living and working in Oregon.  My daughter just started Hofstra Law School in NY. My middle son is in his third year in Chapel Hill on the wrestling team at Carolina!  My youngest son is a junior at Currituck High School. (I am somewhat of a Tarheel fan!)





    I find that many parents and guardians are not exactly sure what the school counselor does so I found a helpful graphic:


    what do i do?




    I look forward to working with you and your students to make this a great school year! 



    keep calm
