Health Matters

  • EMERGENCY INFORMATION

    Contacting the parent/guardian of a sick child is a priority for Cumberland County Schools. To ensure that parent/guardian are notified promptly we are requesting that you update your emergency information with any change in, work, cell, or home phone numbers. Updating the names and phone numbers of friends and/or relatives who are authorized to pick up your child from school will assist us in providing quality care in the event of illnesses or emergencies.

    Parent/guardian who leave their children with a caregiver while deployed or out of town,  remember to notify the school regarding who will be responsible for the children during their absence.

    BEST PRACTICES

    For additional guidance regarding Cumberland County Schools’ Best Practices contact the Office of Health Services at 910-678-2406 or your child’s Public Health School Nurse.
