    • Students and teachers, just a friendly reminder that students are not to be using cell phones outside of the following times: before school, during lunch, and after school.  The only other time that students may use their cell phones is when the teacher of the class is allowing students to utilize their phones within an instructional activity. Earbuds/airpods should not be seen or used between classes or outside of the times that cell phones are allowed.  Remember ~ the only times that you are allowed to use your cell phones are before school, during lunch, after school, and within an instructional activity. Also, students, at no time is it okay to unplug anything at the school in order to charge your phone. Any phones that are plugged into an outlet in which a school device has been unplugged, those phones will be taken until a parent or guardian can pick them up.
    • NC State has invited East Duplin Students to a National College Fair at the Raleigh convention center. if interested in attending, stop by Ms. Cortez’s office in guidance! All students are welcome!
    •  Any student who did not receive a class registration letter from their first period teacher can stop by guidance  and pick one up. Junior registration starts Monday.
    •  Students,  I want to make you aware of an issue that we are having at school.  Throughout the day, there are a great number of students out in the hallways and all across the campus.  There are numerous reasons that this happens, but regardless of the reason, it is creating an atmosphere of constant noise in the hallways, disruptions, and lost instructional time.  To help regain some control over this issue, we will be under a “Closed Campus” status for the next two weeks. Beginning tomorrow, classroom doors will be locked at the tardy bell. Students that are caught out in the hallways after the tardy bell will be required to report to Chill Out for the remainder of the class period.  Students that need to come out of the classroom during instructional time will require an administrator to escort them. At the end of the two week period, administration will assess the effectiveness of our “Closed Campus” and make adjustments. We may continue the practice or we may reduce the restrictions depending on how well you respond.   In other words, if the noise level, disruptions, and lost instructional time gets better, we will go back to business as normal. However, if we see very little improvement, we may continue this practice.
    • Faculty and Staff-  Today is Thankful Thursday for Beta Week. To show their appreciation the Beta Club has provided a light breakfast and snacks in the teachers lounge.  EDHS family- thank you for all that you do to make East Duplin a great place to learn!
    • Beta Students- Be sure to wear a Beta Club t-shirt tomorrow.

    • Teachers and students, I want to make everyone aware of a big change concerning Panther Period.  Last week, I was notified that there was a possibility that we would not be able to utilize Panther Period due to the earlier release time being inconsistent with the rest of the county.  After looking at our plan along with the General Statutes concerning daily instructional time, it was determined that we could not count the last thirty minutes of our day along with our normal instructional time.  Instead of using the Panther Period as we had planned, we will instead use a combination of two schedules that should meet most of our needs. Monday - Thursday, we will be on the regular 3-Lunch Bell Schedule. Within the 3-Lunch Bell Schedule, all teachers will use the last thirty minutes of each period on Thursdays as their designated "Remediation/Enrichment" time.  On Fridays, we will be on a Lunch & Learn Bell Schedule which will allow for club and class meeting opportunities. Both schedules will be on our website by the end of today. Teachers, you already have access to both schedules if you would like to share them with your classes. We will begin this new schedule beginning Tuesday, January 21st.

    • I found a funny fact yesterday while doing a little reading.  Of the almost 7 Billion people on the planet, almost 6 Billion have access to a cell phone.  Only 4.5 Billion have access to a working toilet. Remember that we hope to have everyone disconnectED next Thursday.  There will be incentives for those that participate. Remember that this is to bring awareness to Teen Mental Health issues.  Everyone at this school knows someone that is facing some type of mental health issue. We know that going tech-free for one day is not going to make depression go away, anxiety disappear, or even lessen your stress.  But it will begin conversations among our teachers and students. In other words, bring awareness to a problem that is rarely talked about. According to teenmentalhealth.org, 1 in 5 young people suffer from a mental illness.  That’s 20 percent of our population. I think that’s significant enough for us to do something about it. I hope that each of you make a commitment next week to rise up to the challenge and become disconnectED for just one day.   Teachers, please make sure to show today’s commercial found on our website at some point in your class.

    • Students, as the weather gets warmer, more dress code issues are coming up. There are holes in pants that go above the fingertips. There are leggings being worn and your tops are not long enough. Just in case you have forgotten, tops are supposed to go down to your fingertips when you wear them with leggings. There are also short tops being worn that show your midriff. You will not be allowed to put on a jacket to cover your short shirt. You will have to change. All of these things go against the Duplin County Schools Dress Code Policy. Let me also remind you that your cannot wear tank tops (this applies to boys and girls) or racerback shirts (no shoulder blades should be showing). I have been made aware that sports shorts (like Nike) are also an issue because they are too short. So don’t wear them. Teachers, please make sure you are checking for dress code issues each morning during 1st period. Students, if you are caught with a dress code issue later in the day, it’s still an issue, even if it’s 4th period, and you will wait in ISS until someone brings you a change of clothes. Repeat offenders of the dress code policy will be written up and given consequences.

    • One more thing, students.  A couple of minor or trivial things happened yesterday off campus dealing with our students that caught my attention.  First off, last night our basketball teams played at Goldsboro High School.  The best way to put this is that I was so impressed that our students recognized a big difference between how many of Goldsboro’s fans acted and how our students acted.  Our fans and players were true models of class and sportsmanship throughout the night.  The second thing that happened involved my step dad.  He called me last night to say that he had run into some East Duplin students yesterday when he went out to get something to eat.  He said that he felt compelled to call me to let me know how respectful our students had been towards him while he spoke with them.  Small acts of respect, sportsmanship, and kindness not only reflect well on you when you exhibit these characteristics, but they reflect on our school, our community, and your parents.  It is absolutely the little things that make me the proudest of our student body.  Thank you to all who consistently act in a way that shows good manners and respect.

    Students, as long as it’s above 32 degrees by the end of 1st period, we’ll have lunch & learn.  In fact, we will even look at the forecast to just make sure that it will be warming up by lunch.  When it’s too cold or too wet, lunch & learn gets extremely congested since we have limited indoor space.

    Please make sure you congratulate the cheerleaders today for their conference win this Saturday. The East Duplin cheerleaders took first place in the ECC cheerleading competition.

    Teachers don’t forget that you have mandatory planning period meetings in the conference room in regards to test training.
