2018-2019 Calendar Changes
The Tyrrell County Schools Board of Education has approved the calendar for the 2018-2019 school year. Please note, there are changes to the calendar that may directly or indirectly affect families of students in all grade levels. The biggest change will be earlier start and end dates for students in grades 9 through 12 than in previous school years. Columbia High School students will begin school on August 15th. The purpose of this early start date is to allow first semester classes to end and exams to occur before the winter break. Special legislation allows Cooperative Innovative High Schools to start earlier than the mandated Monday closest to August 25th. Columbia Middle and Tyrrell Elementary Schools are still required to wait until the Monday August 27th to begin school.
