Fayetteville – The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will close for students on Wednesday, May 1, changing the day to an optional workday for teachers and staff. This decision was made after carefully monitoring the number of teachers and staff who have requested leave to attend the education rally in Raleigh on May 1.

“It was our hope to have an adequate number of teachers and substitutes to provide instruction for our students on May 1,” said CCS’ Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “However, because of the increasing number of projected absences, we’ve made a data-driven decision with the safety and well-being of our students in mind.”

No make-up day for students or staff will be required. Prime Time will be available on May 1, 2019, at the all-day care site locations. Please call 678-2451 to reserve your child’s place. Parents will need to provide lunch and a beverage for their child. Parents registering after Monday, April 29, 2019, will also need to bring two snacks and two beverages in addition to their child’s lunch.
