The Cumberland County School System requires that students attending Morganton Road Elementary School live within our school attendance area.  Also, students must be living with a parent, court appointed guardian, or be a ward of the court placed in a home in the school’s attendance area. Families living with other families (e.g., living with relatives in our district), must turn in a notarized affidavit that the school provides.  A copy of that relatives’ proof of address must be attached.

If a student needs to transfer to another school, the student’s parent or legal guardian is requested to check with the school to obtain the necessary forms and information in order to facilitate the transfer procedure.  This request should be made at least 48 hours prior to picking up the transfer documents.


Parent Teacher Association (PTA) The PTA would like to welcome you to Morganton Road Elementary. We strive to help improve Morganton Road by sponsoring programs for the school and by organizing volunteers.

We encourage you to join the PTA.  Membership dues are $5.00 per person per year.  A portion of your dues remains with Morganton Road PTA and the remaining portion pays State and National PTA dues.  PTA Meetings and other school sponsored events will be scheduled throughout the school year; we will communicate the dates/times through notes sent home and electronic phone messages.  Please take part in these events whenever possible. Community involvement is important for our students and school.  

We also sponsor fundraisers to pay for PTA programs and to purchase items for Morganton Road.

*Note- The PTA does not accept personal checks.

PTA Supports School Volunteers

Morganton Road PTA realizes the need for volunteers for the 2018-2019 school year. When you volunteer, you show your child that you care about his/her education.  Children get excited about school when they know a parent is involved.
