Threat events have been occurring this weekend through today in school districts around our area. We understand these threats are cause for concern and we share in those very same concerns with you. The Currituck County School District and the Sheriff's Department are prepared to immediately investigate and take action on any and all threats that are made regarding our students, staff, and school district.
Communication is important when there is a safety concern and we will work diligently to provide as much communication as possible to our parents and staff. On a related note, please encourage your children to report concerning posts/messages to you and/or school administrators. Talk to your children regarding their fears and concerns, but also about the consequences of inappropriate things posted or communicated to others. All threats will be investigated and addressed by school administrators and law enforcement.
We will continue to remain vigilant in our safety efforts. The Currituck County School District is committed to providing safe and productive environments that enhance learning.
Thank you for your support!

The Currituck County Board of Education approved revisions to the 2017-18 academic calendar to make up for the lost instructional hours from January's inclement weather closings.
Ten minutes will be added to the instructional day for students and staff at each of the elementary and middle schools effective Monday, February 12th. The additional ten minutes per day until the end of the school year will provide the hours needed to meet the state requirement of 1025 instructional hours in an academic calendar year. Each school's dismissal time will reflect the addition of these 10 minutes.
We appreciate the nearly 950 responses to the district's Inclement Weather Make-Up Day Survey. Parent and staff input from the survey supports the decision to add these minutes. Furthermore, the Board of Education discussed and outlined a plan should the district have to close school and make-up additional time for inclement weather in the future.New Dismissal times effective 2/12/18:KIES- 3:10pmMES- 2:40pmSES- 2:40pmCES- 3:10pmGES- 2:40pmJES- 3:40pmMMS- 3:45pmCCMS- 3:10pmAs additional inclement weather days occur, and the Currituck County Schools are required to make up additional time, time will be made up as needed by making changes to the academic calendar in the following order:1) April 25th Early Release Day will become a full student day.2) May 8th Workday (Primary Elections) will become a full student day.3) March 30th Early Release Day will become a full student day.

This year, North Carolina will be implementing new procedures for students who must cross the street to board a school bus. These procedures will be implemented in an effort to ensure student safety and avoid serious accidents when students must cross a road to board a school bus. Parents are encouraged to read and reinforce these procedures before the school year begins. Students will receive instruction on these new procedures during the start of the school year. Parent assistance in reinforcing these signals is appreciated! Click HERE for more information.
