School system elementary students are on Plan A

The Carteret County Board of Education met September 24, 2020, in special session to consider revisions to the elementary school schedule based on the Governor’s September 17, 2020, announcement. Board members voted to transition elementary school students to Plan A, which is five-day a week face-to-face instruction, beginning October 19, 2020. Middle school and high schools will continue to operate on Plan B. All students may continue to opt to be 100 percent virtual. 

Beginning October 19, 2020, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school students in Carteret County may attend school five days a week for face-to-face instruction. Families may opt for their elementary students to attend 100 percent remotely.

For elementary students opting to attending face-to-face five days a week, here is more information:

Face coverings for students and employees will continue to be required.

Wellness Checks will continue for school bus riders and car riders.

Social Distancing will continue in common areas such as hallways, restrooms, etc.

Social Distancing will be adhered to in classrooms when possible but there will be times when students may be within six feet of each other for extended periods to time.

Buses may operate with multiple students in a seat, and schools may need to operate double bus routes.

We will inspire, educate, and empower students for life through relationships, knowledge, and opportunity.

PowerSchool Mobile App

Ever wonder what your child is doing in school?  How did he do on that test at school today?  Was she counted present today?

Well you can access this information and much more with the PowerSchool Mobile App.  You can signup for all of your children under one account.  You can also receive real-time push updates anytime a grade or attendance is updated.  Check out the PowerSchool Mobile site for more information.  This is available for Apple and Android devices.

You can also access the same information through your computer, by accessing https://carteret.powerschool.com/public/

If you have never setup a parent account, there are just a few security steps to verify parental status and get you access:

1.  Complete the Parental Request Form for Access and send in with your child or deliver to your school office. (One is needed for each child, if at different schools.) 

2.  Stop by the school and show your state-issued picture ID.  (You must be a parent or legal guardian to receive access.)

3.  Your school will issue you a sheet similar to the one linked HERE.

4.  Go to a computer with internet access and complete the Parent Portal Instructions.
