During a special board meeting Thursday, the Cumberland County Board of Education voted to continue with remote learning for all Cumberland County Schools (CCS) students through the end of the fall semester. The Board will consider resuming in-person instruction at the beginning of the second semester, pending positive metrics from the Cumberland County Department of Public Health.

“Outside only” workouts for volleyball and cross country will begin on October 1, and other sports will begin “outside only” workouts on October 19. The Board approved the volleyball season to begin as scheduled; however, no spectators will be allowed to attend those games, due to COVID-19 concerns.
