February is CTE Month!! Career and Technical education first officially began in 1917 with the Smith-Huges Act but vocational classes have been around long before when the workforce and the public school system began working together to combine hands-on learning with classroom instruction. Today there are endless CTE possibilities ranging from the healthcare industry, manufacturing, agriculture, public safety & law enforcement, STEM, business, financing, computers, and so much more. Throughout this month, Hyde County CTE will be showcasing its elite staff members and students!! Be on the lookout for updates and to see what cool things CTE students are doing in their classes.
The Hyde County Board of Education will conduct a Special Meeting via Zoom at 5:00 p.m., on Thursday, December 31, 2020, with the purpose of the Board reviewing and discussing re-opening the schools to students.

Parents and students, it has come to our attention that there are postings in social media falsely claiming our NC Governor has made a statement that all students in our K-12 Public Schools will repeat the current grade for next school year. This is false information, so please disregard. Thank you.

Hello Hyde County School’s students, staff, and parents. I am so excited to tell everyone about our Breakfast and Lunch meal program in all Hyde County Schools. Governor Roy Cooper has charged school districts with feeding children between the ages of 0-18 years old while schools are closed. As some of you may know, we have students in Hyde County who attend schools other than Hyde County Public Schools. Hyde County Schools is committed to feeding all children, regardless of whether they attend a Hyde County School facility. Each day on the Mattamuskeet side, between 10:30 am and 1:00 pm, our Yellow School Buses will be delivering lunch for that day and breakfast for the following morning to all students on the mainland. On Ocracoke, lunches for today and breakfast for the following morning will be provided each day to be picked up in the NCCAT Dining Room based on the schedule established by Principal Leslie Cole. Last Tuesday, Mattamuskeet served 369 meals. This was an incredible accomplishment considering the entire Mattamuskeet Campus has a population of 397 students. Last Wednesday, Mattamuskeet delivered 380 meals with Ocracoke started their program serving an additional 37 meals. I just wanted to thank all of our staff, including Transportation Director Mrs. Tammy Sadler, for working so hard to make this program such an incredible success. Thank you to everyone for continuing to do what is best for students! Stephen Basnight
