Because of continuing concerns about COVID-19 and in consultation with school principals and athletic directors, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) has decided to delay summer athletic workouts to July 20, 2020. This guidance also applies to other extra-curricular activities such as band camps. This date is subject to change if state and local directives deem it necessary.

Although the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) has not rendered a decision about resuming sports in the fall, it has issued guidelines allowing schools to begin restrictive workouts this summer.

CCS considered allowing athletes to return to campus for voluntary workouts beginning July 6, but has determined that it is too soon to safely hold the workouts.

“Our district is continuing to evaluate when to resume athletic activities,” said Vernon Aldridge, the director of CCS’ Student Activities. “Any resumption will be conducted with the health and safety of our student-athletes and staff in mind and in compliance with the NCHSAA’s Reopening of Sports/Activities Summer Guidelines.”

Aldridge said that the district is also following guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Cumberland County Department of Public Health.

Cape Fear High School 2020 Graduate Hannah CogginsFayetteville, NC – Last week, Cape Fear High School (CFHS) senior Hannah Coggins crossed the graduation stage knowing that she had not missed a single day of school in her life.

The recent graduate not only celebrated completing high school, but she was according to CFHS Principal Brian Edkins, proud to have a record of perfect attendance from kindergarten through 12th grade — a rare occurrence.

“I have completed my entire school experience, from daycare to senior year, with perfect attendance,” said Coggins. “My inspiration for this accomplishment is my father. He pushed me to do my best and always told me that I could miss something important if I were not there. So, after all these years, I can say that I am thankful for him encouraging me to do my best.”

Her family is certain that Coggins will continue the same work ethic as she makes plans to attend Fayetteville Technical Community College in the fall to eventually become a physical therapist assistant.
