 As the COVID-19 pandemic looms and the start of a new school year approaches on August 17, once again, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is giving parents the chance to decide how their child will be educated during the 2020-2021 school year based on what’s best for their family.

On July 9, the Cumberland County Board of Education approved three options for the opening of schools:

Plan A – Traditional Face-to-Face Learning with Minimal Social Distancing;
Plan B – Blended-Remote and Face-to-Face Learning; and

Plan C – Total Remote Learning.

CCS understands that next week Gov. Roy Cooper will share official guidance for reopening schools. Based on his announcement, the district’s proposed plans are subject to change.

If Gov. Cooper selects Plan B, it will require parents to choose one of the following three learning experiences within the Plan that best suits their child:

Option 1 – The Blended In-Person Learning Experience;
Option 2 – The Remote Learning Full-Time Experience at Current School; or

Option 3 – Cumberland Academy (K-12 Virtual School)

The district will launch a School Re-Entry Portal and parents will be able to select an option during the Re-Entry Enrollment Period, which is July 13-19. The option selection remains in place for at a minimum, a semester. The enrollment link, along with additional information, will be accessible to families on Monday, July 13. For more information visit www.reentry.ccs.k12.nc.us.

Slide of multi-toned yellow and orange sun graphic wearing black sunglassesIn order to support the academic rigor we require during the school year, we are continuing with a mandatory summer reading activity for all students attending John Griffin Middle School.

Students are required to read one book from the attached choices for the 2020–2021 academic year. You may check them out from the public library, or you may even have some in your home.  We also have a large number of copies available for checkout from our school office.

Beginning October 1st, 2020 your child will share information about the book with his or her ELA teacher and classmates and present his or her book product. Encourage your child to note interesting characters, important themes, and memorable events from the reading.

Thank you for your support. This effort will ensure our students are challenged academically as we continue to strive for excellence.

If this causes a financial hardship or if you have any questions, please contact our office at 424-7678.
