The New Hanover County Board of Education approved the following revised calendars for the 2020-2021 school year:

“These Post Pandemic calendars are a way for our district to address the immediate and long term needs of our students.” stated Board Member Nelson Beaulieu “ They have endured so much these past months and we need to figure out how we can best engage them when they do come back to school!  These calendars are a big part of that and I want to thank Dr. Smith, Dr. Burns and the entire calendar committee for their excellent work!”

All calendars are posted online at nhcs.net. Additionally, the Board of Education granted authority to the superintendent to revise the current and future calendars as needed in response to closings due to inclement weather, emergencies, and Acts of God.
