Principal's Message for the Week of 01.15.18

Announcements for the Week of December January 15th, 2018

Good Morning, this is Jessica Emory the Principal of Harkers Island with the announcements for the coming weeks. This announcement can also be located on the school website on the main page.


Week Events:

For the week of January 15th:

  • Monday the 15th there is no school because it is the MLK Holiday

For the week of January 22nd:

  • Wednesday the 24th is the first “Pastries with the Principal” OPTIONAL PARENT MEETING. The meeting starts at 8:05 in the cafeteria of the school. Pastries, coffee, and juice will be served.

Ms. Emory will be hosting this optional parent meeting once a month as an opportunity to get to know her, receive updates on the school happenings, and discuss significant school topics.  This first meeting will be on the following the topics:

  • Who is Ms. Emory (Where is she from?  How did she end up here?)
  • Harkers Island Construction Projects (Lobby, Library, Main Office)
  • CCS Snow Make-up Days (When and Why)



The construction in the Main Lobby has concluded until this summer when the flooring and tile will be addressed.  Come check out the new extra large lobby space.  We already love it because we can more easily see the front entrance and carpool seating for students has increased.

Make-Up Snow Days:

  • Snow day Thursday the 4th:  make-up day January 25th
  • Snow day Friday the 5th: make-up day April 5th
  • Snow day Monday the 8th: make-up day April 6th
  • The 30th of March has been turned into an Early Release Day.

Morning Drop-Off

The doors to the school are not open in the morning for morning drop-off earlier than 7:30.  Parents are required to wait until 7:30 for drop- off.  This is a CCS and HIES policy due to the supervision availability of staff and workday hours.  Thank you for supporting our staff and policy but not dropping your student(s) off before 7:30. 


Follow HIES on Twitter @HIESPrincipal and/or on our main website.


If you have any questions please call the Front Desk at 252-728-3295. This message has been posted on the school website for your reference.
