Pertussis, or whooping cough, is circulating in our community. We strongly encourage parents to review the information about Pertussis on the link below or by contacting your School Nurse. The school district is working with the Pender County Health Department to continuously monitor symptoms and contact parents as necessary.
North Carolina requires that public school students be vaccinated against pertussis and other communicable diseases. Your School Nurse is working diligently to ensure that we are compliant with this mandate. Please make sure your child is fully vaccinated and the documentation is provided to your School Nurse as soon as possible.
