PCS families, Hurricane Florence has forced us to miss several weeks of school. Many of us had just found a routine after the first 10 days of school. We are hoping to return to school on the days listed below. In meantime, we have put together a list of OPTIONAL resources that parents can use with their students to stay engaged. The resources are listed by grade level. Some schools/teachers may have sent ideas more specific to their classrooms.

Pender County Schools is in the process of completing needed repairs to ensure its facilities are safe for the return of staff and students. For the most recent facilities update, click here.

At this time, the best projected return dates for Traditional Calendar Schools begin Oct. 18 with a window extending to Oct. 22, based on environmental hygienist and contractor reports.


Thank you to all of the individuals and organizations that have come to the aid of Pender County Schools. Your efforts are having an immediate positive impact for our students, teachers and families.
