CCS is offering another option for families who want to receive meals for their children, but for various reasons are unable to visit a meal site. Beginning October 13, Child Nutrition Services will be distributing five-day meal bundles on Tuesdays. Meal bundles must be pre-ordered. To reserve a meal bundle, parents and caregivers will complete an order form weekly, selecting the pick-up time and location. Quantities are limited and will be provided while supplies last. For families who are not participating in the five-day meal bundle option, the district will continue to provide daily ready-to-eat meals for children 18 years and younger. Each child may receive one breakfast and one lunch per day. For more information about the five-day meal bundles, visit http://bit.ly/CCS5DayMealBundles.

Out of an abundance of caution, employees at Gallberry Farm Elementary School and Jack Britt High School will telework Tuesday, October 6 through Thursday, October 8. This will allow time for deep cleaning and sanitizing of those school buildings. This is a precautionary measure based on recent positive COVID-19 cases impacting staff members at those schools.

The CCS Health Services Department is working closely with the Cumberland County Department of Public Health to personally contact individuals who may have been exposed and will continue to follow the appropriate protocols.

Fayetteville, N.C. – Cumberland County Schools (CCS) has created a COVID-19 dashboard to provide up-to-date information on positive COVID-19 cases in the school system. District staff will update the dashboard on Friday of each week. To access the dashboard, visit http://bit.ly/CCSCOVID-19Dashboard.

“As we navigate through this pandemic, we encourage everyone to follow the guidance of health officials,” said Shirley Bolden, director of Health Services for CCS. “It’s important that we continue to practice the three Ws — wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth, wait six feet apart and avoid close contact, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer. These actions will help flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.”
