[email protected] iBuses Are on the Move
Eighty school buses with Wi-Fi connectivity have been deployed around the community to support connectivity. The range of connectivity for each iBus is the size of a football field. Students in the selected communities should be able to stay in their homes and connect to the iBuses, which will be parked at each location from 7:45 a.m.-4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Beginning on Monday, Sept. 21, some of the iBus locations will change. Here is the updated list of locations:

COVID-19 Update
With a focus on student and staff safety, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. has convened a COVID-19 Medical Advisory team, which is composed of local health officials as well as internal and external stakeholders. The team will review weekly COVID-19 metrics, such as the case positivity rate, new cases per capita (100K), the rate of acceleration and the number of active clusters in the last two weeks. The team’s input will help guide the district as it charts a path toward reopening for in-person instruction, which the Cumberland County Board of Education will later consider for approval.

A special board meeting will be scheduled for mid-September to address movement to Plan B (Blended-Remote and Face-to-Face Learning).

Census Reminder
Have you completed your Census, yet? If not, please do so by Sept. 20. Census data will be used to plan for highways, school lunch funding, emergency response, families in need, and much more. Cumberland County could lose at least $240 million over the next 10 years as a result of projected undercounting. Visit the CCS Website to see how easy it is for you and your family to be counted in the 2020 Census!
