TCS Safety Measures

CHS Mural

The TCS Board of Education has put into place numerous safety protocols and resources to keep our students and school community safe. Please follow the link in the image below. We feel safe in our schools because of our size, our ability to know each student, and our caring approach to building relationships with students and families. But we always have to consider the possibility of a tragedy happening HERE, in our small system. District administrators are meeting to reviewsafety procedures and areas where we can improve our safe schools plans. We are considering the addition of an anonymous tip line for students who are concerned with what they are seeing on social media, and additional safety upgrades to building entrances at Columbia Early College High School. The safety of our 600 students is our top priority in Tyrrell County Schools, let’s continue to work together to keep our kids safe!
