  • Prioritizing Health and Safety


    Cumberland County Schools places a high priority on promptly reaching out to parents or guardians in the event of a student's illness. To ensure swift and effective communication, we kindly request that you keep your emergency contact information up-to-date, especially any changes in your work, cell, or home phone numbers. Additionally, updating the names and contact details of authorized friends or relatives who can pick up your child from school is essential in ensuring quality care during illnesses or emergencies.

    Parents or guardians who entrust their children to a caregiver while away, whether deployed or out of town, are reminded to inform the school of the responsible individual during their absence.


    For further information on adhering to the best practices established by Cumberland County Schools, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Office of Health Services at 910-678-2406 or contact your child's designated Public Health School Nurse. Your commitment to maintaining up-to-date information and adhering to best practices contributes to the health and safety of our students.
