COVID-19 UPDATE: CCS Rolls Out Plan to Keep Students and Employees Safe

Fayetteville, N.C. – In response to Gov. Roy Cooper’s announcement to close all North Carolina Public Schools to limit the spread of COVID-19, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) officials created a plan to engage students in learning beyond the walls of the classroom.

During the two-week period, Cumberland@Home, a remote learning opportunity that will allow students to continue to learn beyond the classroom, will become a vital tool for retaining what has been learned this school year. Through the virtual-learning tool, all Pre-K through 12th grade materials will extend learning opportunities previously taught by classroom teachers. These review materials will help deepen students’ understanding and prepare them for the end-of-the-year standardized assessments.

“In light of the Governor’s executive order and the recommendations from heath officials, we are working expeditiously to keep our employees and students safe from the spread of COVID-19,” said Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “While we realize our students will not receive face-to-face classroom interaction for the next two weeks, we are confident that with the support of our parents and ‘teleworking’ educators, Cumberland@Home will keep our students moving in the right direction.”

Pre-K through 8th-grade students will complete paper-and-pencil assignments. Pre-K through 8th-grade materials may be picked up at the following locations (beginning Wednesday):

Cumberland County Public Libraries (all locations; subject to operating hours).

Cumberland County Housing Authority (all locations; subject to operating hours).

Online:  www.cumberlandathome.ccs.k12.nc.us

High school students will complete their assignments virtually via Google Classroom and Cumberland@Home.

Teachers will hold virtual office hours from 9 a.m. – noon daily to support students and parents. District staff will be available via a hotline with virtual hours for additional support.

Meals Pick-up Sites for Students

To provide meals for many CCS students during the two-week period, Child Nutrition Services will have curb-side pick-up meals for children ages 18 and younger. Each child will receive two meals: Lunch for the current day and a breakfast for the following day. The meal pick-up sites can be found here: http://bit.ly/mealpickup.
