The Mission of North End Elementary is to prepare our students for success in a changing world.
Our vision is to educate and equip our students with the skills and abilities to compete in a global economy and provide them with 21st century skills. Our students will have the ability to be creative problem-solvers, think critically, and learn to communicate and collaborate with others, and place in them a desire to help others and give back to their community.
Kindergarten Registration is Open!

Inclement Weather Information for Parents
WHO IS WATCHING THE WEATHER?
The superintendent and administrative staff carefully watch the weather
conditions during seasons of possible inclement weather.
WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR INFORMATION?
Our school district staff listens to the weather forecasts. The director of
transportation tests the road conditions on our bus routes beginning at
3:30-4 a.m. We also contact the local law enforcement about road
conditions. We must give careful consideration to the most dangerous
bus routes in the district. So, even if it looks clear on your street,
dangerous conditions may exist in other parts of our district.
WHAT FACTORS ARE CONSIDERED WHEN MAKING THE DECISION TO
The safety of all Person County children is our primary concern in making
our decision. In deciding whether children will be safe, we look at the
following factors: Information on road conditions from the director of
transportation and from law enforcement, including whether roads are icy,
flooded, or impassable; Time that precipitation begins to accumulate
and the amount; Weather predictions; Building conditions (e.g.,
whether schools have power and heat); Parking lot conditions;
Temperature and wind-chill.
WHO MAKES THE DECISION?
The superintendent of schools is responsible for the final decision,
based on the above factors and recommendations from the district staff.
WHEN IS THE DECISION MADE?
The decision is made by 6:00 a.m., except in the situations when inclement
weather may force school closings during the school day, so that radio
and TV stations can be notified.
HOW IS THE PUBLIC NOTIFIED?
When the decision is made to close school, details will be posted
immediately on the school district website and on social media such as
Facebook. Additionally, the District will begin notifying parents using
the automated calling system.
The District also provides closing information to local news media outlets.

WHAT IF SCHOOL CLOSES DURING THE DAY?
Parents should make sure that their child’s teacher has on file a written
explanation of what the student should do in the event that school closes
during the day. If school closes during the day, all students will be sent
home on their regular transportation route unless other directions are
on file. PCS Daycare does not operate when schools close early. It is
impossible for the school staff to accept phoned in directions under

North End's AIG students recently participated in the St. Jude's Math-A-Thon.
They raised over $200 to help the patients at the St. Jude's Children's
Hospital. They also completed a math fun book to help sharpen their
math skills. Super proud of these students and their hard work!
