Calendar Update

PCS CALENDAR UPDATES

Calendar changes:
    November 12 will now be a Teacher Workday
    February 23 will be an Early Release day

 

Special Notice from Pitt County Schools on October 22, 2021:

Students, Staff and Families,
We wanted to inform you that the Board of Education held a Special-Called meeting today and made two changes to the current 2021-22 school calendar. The Board voted to approve a teacher workday for November 12, 2021, formerly a regular school day for students. February 23, 2022, will also be an early release day for students. Banked hours, normally reserved for severe weather such as hurricanes, will be used, so student days will not need to be made up.

Please know that the above changes are in response to understanding that while we anticipated this school year would be vastly different than the previous school year for our staff and students, it simply has not been the case. The workload of educators has been greatly multiplied due to the continued pandemic, with few workdays formerly built into the calendar at the beginning of each semester. Our intention is to provide the necessary support for our educators and administrators, while still maintaining the allotted number of student days required for North Carolina schools.
