Covid Safety Protocols

On November 9th, the School Board unanimously took action to modify the district’s COVID protocols and has made face coverings optional for all students, staff, and visitors in school buildings effective Monday, November 15. Due to federal guidelines, face coverings will still be required on all OCS school transportation until further notice.

School Dismissal Manager

All dismissal changes need to happen inside the SDM system. It is very important that information in the system is kept current and correct. If you do not have access to your SDM account, please email jill.yager@onslow.k12.nc.us or michelle.staley@onslow.k12.nc.us for assistance.


If your student is partaking in any after school activity, this needs to be documented in SDM by selecting the appropriate activity.


Parents of car riders, we want to remind you to please display the student name sign in a manner that is easy to read from the sidewalk. I suggest the passenger side visor. We also need all parents who are capable of using their mobile device to self check-in to do so. If you need help with this process, call the office for assistance.
