Due to enrollment numbers that have buildings at 95 percent capacity or higher, the following schools are currently closed to new transfers: Eastern Elementary School, John Cotten Tayloe Elementary School and Washington High School.

Other schools are currently at 90-95 percent capacity. Administrators are closely watching these schools. If the capacity exceeds 95 percent, the school will be closed to new transfers. Those schools being closely monitored at this time are P. S. Jones Middle School, Chocowinity Middle School, Chocowinity Primary School and Bath Elementary School. Decisions on the status of these schools will be made following the district’s kindergarten registration window.
