Parents and Students in Hyde County Schools, As the school system starts making preparations to determine what the next school year will look like, we need to gather updated information on Internet access at home. We ask that you please click and fill out this form only ONCE per household. Therefore, even if you have 3 children that attend our school system, you would only answer this survey one time. The link to this survey is: https://forms.gle/S88sCRQtLNtdRLsR7 Please fill out as soon as possible. We will be pulling the data from the survey this Monday, June 15th, at the close of the business day. We thank you for your cooperation.

Ok so, she is no senior student at our school campus, but she has such a key role in the running of our school system. Ms. Stewart is our school nurse! This week, we celebrated the National School Nurse Day, and we wanted to take the opportunity to recognize and value her work and contributions to our school community! She works super hard to help keep our students and staff healthy and safe, and even more so in the eve of this pandemic! We appreciate her essential work and want to extend our congratulations on her day! Parents, students and community, how about joining with us in celebrating this amazing staff member at school?

Laker Pride Post!! We would like to extend our congratulations to the following students at Mattamuskeet Early College High School: LeAnna Farrow Charity Spencer Kriston Spencer ShiAnn Thompson These students just earned their Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Certification. This was a 10-hour online certification that is targeted at making a significant and critical impact on decreasing the number of young worker injuries and fatalities in the US. These students have learned how to safety transfer patients, proper body mechanics and on the job safety. They can now recognize, avoid, abate, and prevent safety and health hazards in the workplace. Their certification will never expire. It is outstanding to see our students working extra hard to complete their high school years with an advantage over everyone else to help them in their future endeavors! Congratulations for your hard work!

Our district feels very blessed to be 1 of only 7 counties in NC not have a confirmed case of COVID-19 so far. What we are doing is working! Thank you for all your support! With that in mind, there have been additional guidelines set up by the state to increase the level of safety for our staff who are serving as essential personnel delivering meals to your homes. 1. Starting today, we ask that you please setup a table, cooler, container, or box outside your house where the bus stops so the meals may be dropped in or on them and you can get to them after the bus departs. 2. If this is not feasible, we ask that neither parents nor students board the school bus for any reason. We appreciate your cooperation with these updates and we urge you to continue to follow local and state safety measures to keep all of us in Hyde county safe from this virus. Thank you and have a great day! En el distrito escolar nos sentimos muy bendecidos por ser todavía 1 de 7 condados en Carolina del Norte sin un caso confirmado del virus COVID-19 hasta ahora. Lo que estamos haciendo está funcionando. Gracias a todos por su apoyo. Teniendo esto presente, parámetros adicionales han sido establecidos por el estado para incrementar el nivel de protección de nuestro personal escolar quienes han sido designados como personal esencial al repartir la comida a sus hogares. 1. Iniciándose el día de hoy, le pedimos que por favor coloque una mesa, contenedor, caja afuera de su casa en donde el bus escolar se para para que la comida sea depositada o colocada en el mismo y usted pueda recogerlo después que el bus se haya ido. 2. Si esta opción no es posible, le pedimos que ni padres ni estudiantes aborden el bus escolar por ningún motivo. Apreciamos eternamente su cooperación con esta novedad y le rogamos que continúe cumpliendo con las medidas de protección establecidas por el gobierno local y estatal para que todos en el Condado de Hyde continuemos protegidos de este virus. Gracias y que tenga un buen día.

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

Important Message from Mattamuskeet Early College High School Principal, Mr. Wesley Floy: As you should be aware, we began virtual instruction last Thursday. Teachers have been teaching students online using the digital tools available. The beauty of the online instruction is that it allows us to not only continue providing instruction to our students, but also provides our students and staff opportunities to meet and talk through challenges, virtually. Students can still complete all their work from home showing that they are attending their classes. To do this students MUST check their emails, engage with their teachers during their "Office Hours," and complete their work. In other words, learning continues every day for each class despite our school campus mandated extended closure. Please contact your child’s teacher, have your child log in to his/her emails, and complete work for each class. As a parent, we know that you want to support your child’s education. Again, school is moving forward. Thank you for supporting your student and teachers. Please feel free to contact the school for additional questions.
