PRESS RELEASE

Construction on the new Third Creek Middle School continues and is on track for the 2020-2021 school year. The new school will be located at 359 E. Barkley Road in Statesville, right beside Third Creek Elementary. With the exception of a few redistricting locations, students who currently attend Statesville Middle School will attend Third Creek Middle for the 2020-2021 school year. Redistricting for the new Third Creek Middle was proposed at the Board of Education Meeting on Monday, November 4, 2019. Redistricting for Third Creek Middle will impact four areas of Statesville:

Current sixth and seventh grade students who are attending Troutman Middle who wish to continue at Troutman Middle may do so through a grandfather clause. However, transportation will not be provided.
  • Students currently living in BOUNDARY 40 and 49 (see map) currently attend East Iredell Middle school. Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, those students will attend the new Third Creek Middle. Current sixth and seventh grade students who are attending East Iredell Middle who wish to continue at East Iredell Middle may do so through a grandfather clause. However, transportation will not be provided.
  • Students currently living in BOUNDARY 37 (see map) currently attend Statesville Middle school. Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, those students will attend East Iredell Middle School.
