Storm Brings Three-Hour Release, Two-Day Close for the CCS

The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is working closely with Cumberland County Emergency Management to monitor the path of Hurricane Florence. Based on weather projections and the State of Emergency issued by the Cumberland County Commissioners, there will be a three-hour early release for students on Wednesday, September 12. CCS’ Prime Time before- and after-school care program will close two hours after schools dismiss. 

The school system will be closed on Thursday, September 13 and Friday, September 14 for all students and staff.

Currently, the projected make-up days are as follows:

  • Traditional Schools – Monday, October 22 & Wednesday, November 21
  • Year-Round Schools, Early College High Schools, & Cumberland Polytechnic High School – Tuesday, November 6 and Wednesday, November 21

“As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” said CCS’ Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “Based on our County Commissioners’ guidance during this State of Emergency, we encourage all staff members and students to adhere to the curfew, which will be effective beginning Wednesday. We hope everyone will take the necessary precautions to prepare for the storm and be safe. Additionally, we will continue to monitor the storm’s impact on Cumberland County and make any necessary decisions regarding school next week as soon as conditions allow.”
