Pitt County Schools will now make up Friday, September 6, on October 11, 2019. October 11, formerly a system-designated workday, is now a full school day for all schools students and staff (including Early College sites). There will be no make-up day for students for time missed on Thursday, September 5, as PCS will utilize banked instructional time already built into the 2019-2020 school calendar.
