Health & Safety

Tyrrell County Schools is dedicated to supporting student health, mental health and safety, including improving school climate, promoting student and staff well-being, and addressing individual student strengths and needs.

Tyrrell County Schools is committed to strengthen and facilitate the educational process for students through identification, intervention, and correction of health related barriers that may impede learning. We strive to assure a safe and healthy environment conducive to learning for all students. We also aim to provide quality care for those who become ill or injured in order to maximize the quality of in-class time by reducing health related absenteeism.

Our staff works collaboratively with students, parents, educators, staff members, and other community resources to ensure that children’s health needs are supported within their school and community. This includes
 
  • helping families and school personnel prepare a safe and appropriate response to medical emergencies that a student might experience during school
  • assuring that all health related procedures and treatments are performed safely and accurately by trained school personnel
  • assisting to maximize the quality of the student’s educational experience by reducing the incidence of health related absenteeism
  • assuring that medications administered during school are done so correctly and according to school policy

Tyrrell County Schools supports the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students.
