Welcome Back!

Months of preparation have come to fruition as the 2013-14 school year is now officially under way. Over 12,000 students walked through the doors of our 20 schools on August 26, greeted by friendly staff who were refreshed and eager to get started.

Many innovative initiatives and changes are in store for this school year, including new principals at Carrboro Elementary and Chapel Hill High. Additionally, Frank Porter Graham Elementary opened this year as the district's first-ever magnet school and Northside Elementary opened in a brand new facility, built on the historic site where the original school of the same name once stood. The district has also launched its new long-range plan which will guide our work and lead us to sustained excellence.

Parents are encouraged to get involved...and that starts with building relationships with teachers and other members of the school community. We urge everyone to become familiar with the websites for both the school and district, where policies, calendars, contact information and much more can be found. Another great way to stay connected is to "like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Sulura Jackson, Principal of Chapel Hill High, greets a student and welcomes him back to school.
