    Hi parents and families!

    I know that we are going through some difficult times and Duplin County Schools wants to help in any way that we can. Although we have suspended meal distribution at school sites, parents in need of food service for their children can text FOODNC to 877-877. This service is also available in Spanish by texting COMIDA to 877-877. Parents can also call 2-1-1 for assistance locating meal sites in their communities. 

    If you have any other needs or concerns, you can fill out this survey from the school Social Worker, Ms. Mobley:

    COVID-19 Survey 

    This survey is also available in Spanish:

    ENCUESTA DE NECESIDADES COVID-19 (Spanish)

    I would also recommend that you check out Ms. Mobley's webpage as it has several helpful resources. 

    If there is anything that I personally can do to help your student either academically or through social-emotional support, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are all in this together and although we cannot physically be together at this time, we will do everything we can to support your children and family. 

    Love, 

    Ms. Baldassini

    Hi students and families!

    I realized that some of you were having trouble accessing the Epic Library. I just sent out invitations via email. I sent them to parents' emails that I had on file. If you did not receive an email, I sent it to your student's Duplin County Schools email. If you would like me to re-send the invitation, please just let me know and give me the email address you would like me to use.

    The Epic Library is a great resource and you can access it for free until June 30th. Definitely be sure to take advantage of it!

    I'm missing you all and hope you are all staying safe!

    Love,
    Ms. Baldassini

    Hi students and families!

    With the COVID-19 virus affecting our class schedule, here are some resouces that you can use to keep up with your ELA and Social Studies learning. For those of you with computer access, I encourage you to use these resources as much as possible. Regardless of your computer access, use this time away from school to keep reading! Read your independent reading books, read the newspaper, read whatever you can get your hands on! And most importantly, wash those hands and stay safe. I'm sending you all my love and prayers. I'm looking forward to seeing you all back at school as soon as possible.
