Active Shooter Exercise to be Held at Hyde County Schools

08/03/2018 - Hyde County Schools in partnership with the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office, NC State Highway Patrol and other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, along with local Fire Dept. and EMS will be conducting an Active Shooter Exercise on both campuses.

The Mattamuskeet Campus exercise will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 and the Ocracoke Campus exercise will be help on Friday, August 17, 2018. Both will be held from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm.

Due to the nature of the exercise, the entire campus will be closed to the public. No visitors to the campus will be allowed on site and the campus will be cordoned off with yellow tape. Safety coordinators will also be stationed on the perimeter of the campus to re-direct individuals desiring access to the campus. School staff will be on site to participate in the exercise and to learn the procedures that must be followed in the event an active shooter is on site.

Thank you for your understanding as the school works with law enforcement agencies to help prepare its employees to be in a position to better protect the children in the event of an active shooter incident.
