Dare County Families and Friends, 

I am writing to extend holiday greetings to you and your family. I wish each of you a restful winter break, a happy holiday, and a prosperous and reflective new year.

As the remaining days of 2019 come to an end, I am proud of our shared accomplishments from the past year. We have amazing schools in Dare County. Our talented and dedicated educators work tirelessly to provide each of our students with a safe and fun learning experience. To each of you, I say thank you. I am also grateful for the endless support and encouragement we receive from parents and community members. Without your partnership, our work would often go unfinished. 

This time of year presents us with the opportunity to extend tidings of peace and love to our families and our neighbors. It is a time for us to reflect on our responsibility to share with the less fortunate, to forgive each other, to care for the sick and the hungry, and to treat each other the way we would want to be treated. It is also a time for us to remember the brave men and women that serve in the United States Military, many of whom are deployed all around the world. 

As we look towards a new year, I am excited about the opportunities that await Dare County Schools. Please know that I value your input and contributions to our schools. My door is always open. On behalf of Rena, Jack and Cate, I wish you the best of the season, take care, and Happy Holidays. 

John Farrelly
Superintendent, Dare County Schools
