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.
