Onslow County Schools, January 23, 2018 — The new Richlands Elementary School located at Steeds Park, Richlands, NC, will open for students in August of 2018.  To better serve our elementary school children in the Richlands area, Onslow County Schools’ Board of Education voted in November 2017, to transition Richlands Elementary School and Richlands Primary School to serve students in kindergarten through fifth grade beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.

This change requires the creation of two separate districts within the existing Richlands area to support the K-5 students for each school.  On January 19, 2018, Onslow County Schools’ Board of Education received a re-alignment proposal from staff. 

The proposed re-alignment will provide a continuity of instructional services from one grade level to the next, shorten many bus routes, and balance the student population at each school in accordance with State statutes.

However, before making a final decision in February, Onslow County Schools wants to receive input from parents and families affected by the re-alignment. A town hall meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on January 30, 2018, in the multi-purpose room at Richlands Primary School, located at 7444 Richlands Highway, Richlands, NC. We encourage any parents who may be impacted by this proposal to attend the meeting to receive additional information and provide feedback to the Board of Education.
