CCS Announces Update on School Calendars
Year-Round Schools to Begin School Year Remotely

In light of the restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students attending year-round schools (Anne Chesnutt Middle, E.E. Miller Elementary and Reid Ross Classical) will begin the 2020-2021 school year remotely. The first day of school for Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) year-round students will be July 9.

The Cumberland County Board of Education approved revised calendars at its June 9 meeting. The start dates have been determined; however, the format of instruction for the following school calendars has not been finalized:

  • Early College High Schools: August 3
  • Cumberland Polytechnic High School: August 12
  • Traditional Schools and A.B. Wilkins High School: August 17

The district is reviewing and considering multiple options for schools based on guidance received from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).

To assist with planning for the fall, the district has launched a parent survey to gather input and feedback about remote learning: https://forms.gle/PAiVkBFa7udx2i1Z7. Parents and guardians are encouraged to complete one survey per household.

“As we continue to monitor and follow COVID-19 guidance, we are exploring multiple scenarios and options for school in the fall,” said CCS Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “Our final decision will be guided by directions from the Governor, along with state and local health officials. Our top priority is the safety of our students and staff.”
