The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We will provide updates and resources in an effort to help families reduce the risk in their home and community.
Tyrrell County Schools Continuity of Learning
Our instructional staff have the skills needed to move teaching and learning beyond the four walls of the classroom for all of our students. We are committed to providing quality instruction to our students within a remote environment.
Tyrrell County Schools can provide you (parent) and your child with access to your child's current grades and attendance via the internet.
Return to Schools Update
On October 13, 2020, the Tyrrell County Schools’ Board of Education accepted Superintendent Holley's recommendation that students at Tyrrell Elementary remain on Plan C, through the remainder of the first semester, which ends on December 17, 2020. This decision was made as a result of placing the safety of our students and staff as our top priority.
NC Remote Learning Resources & Information
These resources shared are to assist in finding effective instructional material. Some of these resources are typically a paid subscription but have been opened specifically in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This is not a comprehensive list - the page will be updated with new resources and monitored for changes as they are necessary.
In an effort to support families and teachers, the resources linked below have been created to provide weekly learning activities that do not require technology and are aligned to NC standards. Resources are organized by age and grade level. Knowing that children develop and learn at different rates please don't hesitate to look at resources outside of your child's age or grade level. Weekly resources will continue to be added each Friday. Please check back for more!
Department of Health & Human Services School Re-Opening Guidance
Please take a look at StrongSchoolsNC: Public Health Toolkit (K-12) to read about the health and safety requirements directly from the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This document will be helpful in informing our stakeholders what types of health and safety procedures schools will be taking to ensure the health & safety of our students and staff. This toolkit lists the specific requirements that schools need to implement.
In addition to the StrongSchoolsNC Toolkit, DHHS has also developed very specific protocols for what school staff need to do if an individual is symptom-positive or has contracted COVID-19. Links to both of those documents (in English and Spanish), as well as an FAQ on the guidance, is below.
Department of Health & Human Services Updated InformationNCDHHS has created a family-facing brochure that can be shared directly with families to provide more insight into what school reopening will look like.
