Are you interesed in attending the district's Early College High School?!

The first Onslow County Early College High School opened their doors to the inaugural class just a few months ago in August 2017 and now they are ready to begin the process of planning for the 2018/2019 school year. Early College representatives met with Trexler's Eighth grade Math I students on November 3rd to share information about their school and specific facts about early college programs. Coming up in just a few weeks on November 13th at 5:30pm in Trexler's Media Center, representatives will return to hold a parent meeting with interested families. Please plan to attend the parent meeting to learn more about the Early College High School experience and to ask questions that you may have. To attend the Early College, students must successfully complete Math I by the end of eighth grade.

A Message from Onslow County Schools Health Services

The fall months have arrived, and winter is fast approaching, so our children are bundling up in hats, scarves and hooded jackets. That means it is a great time of year for us to see an increase in cases of head lice. As a proactive measure, please click here to learn some preventative measures to help minimize the risk of head lice. It will also help you learn how to identify lice and provide information on what to do if lice hits your home.
