Fayetteville, NC – In light of the aftermath of Hurricane Florence and the evacuation of numerous students, employees, and their families, the Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will be closed for students on Thursday, September 20 and Friday, September 21. On both days, an Optional Workday for All Personnel will be observed. Make-up days will be announced at a later time. 

The CCS continues to partner with County officials to assess road conditions, including the structural integrity of bridges and other routes that school buses travel to transport students.

“During this week, many of our employees have been working around the clock to survey any damage caused by the storm to ensure our buildings are safe for students and staff to return to school,” said CCS’ Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “We are thankful to them as well as our City, County, and State officials, who have kept us abreast of conditions and have worked with us in setting up and maintaining shelters across Cumberland County for displaced families. I truly believe that trying times like these show the true strength and togetherness of our community.”

Prime Time will be closed on Thursday, September 20 and Friday, September 21

All after-school activities and events are canceled through Sunday, September 23.
