School Announcements

  • Good evening Trojan Families,

    This is the evening's message for the week of October 26 through October 30.

    Let me begin by saying that it has been an honor to serve as your principal of Southeast Collegiate Prep. Thank you for accepting me and working with me to see the value of being a Trojan, and the pride to be called a Mighty Trojan. There is still work to be done, however we are growing in the right direction. Continue to support all scholars and staff in making Southeast Collegiate a great place to learn and teach, as they prepare all scholars for the challenges they will face; not if they graduate, but when they graduate.

    College Application week continues, scholars can schedule time with our school counselor Ms Higgins who will help in completing college applications and other post secondary information. These sessions can be done virtually or through "Park and Prepare," which are socially distanced face to face sessions in the court yard adjacent to the bus parking lot.

    Monday, October 26 is the make up day for Senior portraits from 9:30 to 11:00. Appointments should have been made online through LifeTouch. Scholars or parents can call or email Mr. Osorio or their Senior Advisor for more information.

    The STEM in the park event originally scheduled for October 16 in Scotland Neck will be Thursday, October 29 from 10:00 to 12:30, outside in the court yard at the Scotland Neck Town Hall.

    On Friday, October 30 another STEM in the park event for the Enfield communities will be hosted on the campus of Inborden and Enfield S.T.E.A.M. Academy. Masks will be required, social distance will be enforced, and hand washing stations will be available. These are K-12 events and we hope that Halifax County Schools scholars and families will come out and support and help showcase the great things going on in Halifax County Schools.

    Finally, Halifax County Schools is providing hot meals and shelf stable meals on Mondays and Wednesdays. We need all scholars to come out to the bus to receive these meals. Do not let this blessing pass you by.

    Thank you for your time, be well, and God Bless.

    Humbly yours,

    Dr. Gregory Monroe

You can call Ms. Evans, Southeast's data manager to get connected. You can call 252-445-2027 or email her at

    Finally, this week is the beginning of College Application Week. Our goal is to have 100% of our seniors to apply to a post-secondary program.

    Halifax County, NC- October 5, 2020

    Reopening of Schools

    At the Halifax County Board of Education meeting on Monday, October 5, 2020, the Board approved Superintendent Dr. Eric Cunningham’s recommendation to continue with remote learning for the next nine weeks. Dr. Cunningham stated that he would monitor for the next couple of weeks and reserves the right to modify his recommendation at November 2020 board meeting.

    Dr. Cunningham based his recommendation on survey data after listening to parents, students, staff and teachers. The data revealed that there are deep concerns about COVID-19 and its impact on reopening for in-person instruction. Halifax County Schools has suffered a terrible loss and it still resonates in our hearts and minds of our entire community. We will continue to work with our health department officials and monitor the data. With the support and guidance of our health experts, I am certain we will identify the best time to fully reopen. Safety is our highest priority and requires everyone to be in alignment to protect our most precious treasures our children.

  • Hello Trojans,  

    The following announcements are for the week of September 21 through September 25, and will be posted on the Southeast homepage and Facebook page.

    I would like to start with a special shout out to several community partners who have stepped up with phenomenal support for Southeast. Thank you Smith Chapel Missionary Baptist Church of Enfield, Pastor Farmer, and congregation for your donations of 20 plus thumb-drives and sponsorship of several Chromebook hardship scholarships. Also a special thank you to Commissioner Kenneth Ward and Coach Omar Jackson for also sponsoring more than 10 Chromebook hardship scholarships.

    As a reminder Parents and Guardians, scholars should check in daily with each of their teachers, even if they cannot attend the live sessions at the exact time. We realize that connectivity issues continue to be a revolving and unpredictable issue. However, check-ins can be done via emails, logging into Google Classes to start or submit an assignment, or a simple telephone call.  

    Again, if there are barriers to learning, we are making every effort to overcome them, and unlike the shut-down in March, scholars' engagement and efforts are being measured by numeric grades and not just a pass or fail score, which is reflected in the progress reports mailed out on Friday. If your scholars' progress report is not received, you can contact your scholars' teachers. You can find their contact information as well as their office hours and other class information on their teacher pages found on the Southeast homepage at

    Finally, I have to stress that scholars utilize their teachers' office hours, intervention periods, and other resources, put in place to help during these challenging times. Parents, if your scholar can attend the synchronous or live instructional sessions or the small group and one on one sessions hosted by their teachers they should take full advantage of every opportunity.

    We achieve more together and team work makes the dream work.

    Thank you for your time, stay safe, and God Bless you all.

    Dr. Gregory Monroe

  • Message from Dr. Monroe - September 14, 2020:
    Hello Trojans, this is Dr. Monroe Southeast's principal, with the evening's message for the week of September 14 through September 18. 
    We have completed 4 weeks of instruction in this new school year. We are still working through the day to day issues as they arise. Thank you all for partnering with us as we face the highs and lows together. 
    There will be virtual College Admission sessions for Seniors on Monday, September 14 with Fayetteville State, and Tuesday, September 15 with Shaw University. Seniors should check their email for messages from our guidance counselor, Ms Higgins for the links to join each session. 
    On Wednesday, September 16 progress reports will be generated. Parents and Guardians, progress reports can be emailed to you with your consent, and if we have your email address on file. To give consent and/or have your email address placed on file you should call Ms. Evans, our data manager at 252-445-2027 or email her at Grades on the progress report are reflective of graded assignments, quizzes, projects, and major tests. Scholars if you are not pleased with your progress report grade, there is still time to make improvements. 
    Parents and Guardians, scholars should check in daily with each of their teachers, even if they cannot attend the live sessions at the exact time. We realize that connectivity issues continue to be revolving and unpredictable. Check-ins can be done via emails, logging into the class to start or submit an assignment, or a telephone call. If there are issues related to a device, please call me and let's work together to resolve the challenges impeding learning.
    On Friday, September 18 teachers will be involved in virtual professional development workshops.  Synchronous or live sessions will be recorded and posted with assignments to be completed. Scholars should go to their teachers webpage, check their student emails, or log into the learning platforms as directed by the teacher to be counted present and to receive grade credits.
    Finally, teachers have posted office hours and intervention times. Some scholars are not utilizing these resources, which will be reflected on the progress reports. Parents, please encourage your scholar to attend all live sessions and take advantage of the small group or one on one sessions hosted by their teachers. As the old adage goes, a closed mouth doesn't get fed.
    Thank you for your time, stay safe, and God Bless!
    Dr. Gregory E. Monroe, Principal
