Staff, Parents and Students: As this school year soon comes to a close, we understand you need to make plans around the school calendar for next school year. At this point in time, the Board of Education has approved two different calendars drafts; one for Mattamuskeet School and Hyde Academy and the other one for Ocracoke School, but these calendars are not official. The hold up to make them so relies solely on the passing on House Bill HB163: AN ACT TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FLEXIBILITY TO CERTAIN SCHOOL SYTEMS IN ADOPTING THE SCHOOL CALENDARS at the General Assembly in Raleigh, NC. We would still like to share a link to each calendar to help you plan out the school year. However, if you like your particular calendar, we do encourage you to contact you legislators and ask them to pass HB163. Please click on the links to access the calendar drafts: Mattamuskeet School & Hyde Academy: https://5il.co/1u29g Ocracoke School: https://5il.co/1u29f
