In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, many Cumberland County residents continue to deal with personal loss and challenging conditions.  To assist in the recovery process, the USDA is providing assistance to 32 North Carolina counties, including the Cumberland County Schools’ Child Nutrition Services, impacted by a Major Disaster Declaration.  

The benefits include offering meals to all students of the Cumberland County Schools at no charge through November 11, 2016. During this time, each student regardless of his/her approved meal status will be allowed one breakfast and one lunch per day at no charge.  All meals will continue to meet USDA guidelines. Additional items, including milk, may be purchased at the a la carte prices.  

Starting November 14, 2016, student meals will return to regular pricing.  Parents/guardians who have not done so already, may submit an application for free or reduce priced meal benefits at any time throughout the school year.  Only one application is needed per household.

Easy access to nutritious school meals will help keep students well-nourished and ready to learn as our community continues to deal with the aftermath and recovery from Hurricane Matthew.

Every Minute Counts  From Start to finish, class time matters

Parents help us combat student tardiness. Last school year, over 800 students were tardy to our elementary schools everyday. This year, the CCS is ‘teaming up’ with parents to combat student tardiness from grades kindergarten through 12th. As we have examined student data, it was discovered that some students are repeatedly missing large blocks of instructional time because of tardiness. Many of them are being checked in to school one hour late every day. We also have many who are being checked out by their parent/guardian early each day as well. Because of this,  the CCS is launching a campaign to help tackle tardiness titled “Every Minute Counts! From start to finish, class time matters.” Being tardy not only impacts the student who is late, but it impacts others in the class. Research shows that every disruption causes a gap in learning for ALL students in the class and can make the difference between a student passing a subject or having to remediate. We not only want to give our children the academic skills they need to succeed in life, but we want to give them another important life skill: being on time. The CCS is calling on all parents to join in this effort and help raise the expectations for our students by getting them to school on time and allowing them to complete the entire school day.
