Currituck County held two ribbon-cutting ceremonies on August 10, 2023 to celebrate the completion of renovation projects at Moyock Middle School and Moyock Elementary School. Members of the Board of Commissioners, Board of Education, county staff, and school personnel were joined by many county residents and students at each site. Also attending were officials from Sussex Development Corp. and Boomerang Design. These companies formed the project team to complete the renovations in time for the start of the new school year.
At Moyock Middle School, the project included an expansion of the cafeteria and renovations to create a new chorus room and new band classroom. A new outdoor patio seating area was built near the main office lobby in the heart of the school. Six new classrooms, including a new sixth grade science lab, were constructed and added onto the facility’s three main academic wings.
The project at Moyock Elementary School involved the demolition of an older section of the school and replacing it with a new two-story building, connected to the main school building. The addition includes the school’s cafeteria and 16 classrooms. First and second grade students at MES will be housed in the new addition.
