Governor Morehead School February Newsletter

Dear Governor Morehead School Community,

Please enjoy this month's newsletter:

As Governor Morehead School students and staff roll into the 2nd semester, it is full steam ahead. As you will see in this newsletter, there are many great things happening virtually in our classrooms and in our community.  We continue to be grateful for all the support our students’ families are providing and their partnership throughout this time, as well as the determination our students are demonstrating.  We are hopeful that in the next few months the conditions of the pandemic will improve as vaccines continue to be distributed. Educators will have the opportunity for vaccines in Group 3: Frontline Essential Workers. For more information on when “Finding your spot to take your Shot” visit


Black History Month: This month we celebrate Black History Month.  Celebrate literature and hear from North Carolina authors with the Fourth-Annual Black History Month Read-In with N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Throughout Black History Month in February, the Commission will highlight individual Black North Carolina children’s book authors. This year’s event will be entirely online and will highlight different N.C. children’s book authors and include videos and interviews. For information regarding the video release schedule, visit


Summer Program 2021: We have begun planning for a Summer Program. The program will take place in-person if the school re-opens, if not, the program will be remote. The program will include educational opportunities in a fun and engaging way that promotes more than just academics but the opportunity to play games, participate in outdoor activities, and be with friends safely. Families can register now by completing the Summer Program Application.  


Lastly, we are always seeking ways we can best serve our students and our families.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to share your experiences with GMS and our remote learning.  We wish you continued health and our best.
