     Matthew caused a lot of damage to our area and we missed a few school days that we are required to make up.  Parents, just a reminder to check the Currituck County website to see the approved school make-up days for the remainder of the year.
    We are off to a great start this school year.  Preschool has had a busy start to the year as we have re-located our Jarvisburg PreK to Griggs Elementary and continue to serve students at Central Elementary.  Thank you to all who have applied and with our new on-line application, procedures are running smooth.  NCPre-K continues to have 18 students in each classroom and applications can be completed through our Currituck County Schools Website. Students that are found eligible at this time of the school year will be placed on a waiting list and parents will be notified of status changes. Applications for 2017-2018 will not be available before February of 2017.  Notice will be posted as soon as I have next years regulations.
    Classroom teachers have completed our first round of home visits with most families and we are thankful for your cooperation in allowing us to visit and answer any questions you may have.   
    Hello everyone and welcome to Preschool.  My name is Deidre Simmons and I am serving the preschool students in our county as the Preschool Coordinator and NCPK Program Administrator.  I have been teaching for 25 years.  I earned a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education from North Carolina Central University, located in Durham, North Carolina.  I have add on certification in Birth- Kindergarten and Early Childhood through grade 4. In November of 2010 I earned National Board Teacher Certification!   I worked in the Birth to 3 population for 4 years, serving infants and toddlers in the home environment before coming to Currituck County  in 1993 and beginning my work with the 3-5 year old preschool population.
