Make-Up Snow Days:  On Tuesday the 7th, the board of education voted to use instructional hours to make-up the snow days from January 5th, 8th, and 18th.  This means that enough instructional hours will occur this school year to cover the time required in school by the state.  Spring Break, the entire time, has been restored.  See make-up days below:

  • Snow day January Thursday the 4th:  make-up day January 25th
  • Snow day January Friday the 5th: no make-up day required
  • Snow day January Monday the 8th: no make-up day required
  • Snow day January Thursday the 18th: no make-up day required
  • The 30th of March has been turned back into a regular school day – no early release day.

Pastries with the Principal:  We had our first Pastries with the Principal meeting in January.  We discussed the building projects, snow make-up days, and volunteerism.  Here are the dates for the remainder of the year.  If there is interest in a 4:30 pm meeting time please email Ms. Emory (jessica.emory@carteretk12.org) and given enough interest she will host an am and pm session.
