2022-2023 Back-to-School Superintendent’s Message

  • Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  Back-to-School Season is one of my favorite times of the year.  As your superintendent, I feel so fortunate to serve as your leader. I take this responsibility seriously and am thankful that you are part of the CCS family! 

    As we prepare for this new school year, it is important to note that we are continuing to navigate through the complexities and the aftermath of a global pandemic, but this year we’re focused, more than ever, on working together to produce the best outcomes for our young people. Together, We Will Rise!

    We have a tremendous school district. Our successful students and premier professionals have achieved remarkable success in the classroom and beyond. Last year, many of them represented our county at the state and national levels, and we’re Cumberland County Proud.  As we go into the new school year, we will continue to allow our strategic plan, “The Cumberland Commitment,” to guide us. 

    To maintain a safe and inviting environment, we are excited about starting the school year with a new mobile device app and website—Here Comes the Bus®. CCS is dedicated to providing innovative and secure resources to keep families informed. Here Comes the Bus allows registered families to view the real-time location of their child’s school bus via their smartphone or computer.

    To learn more about Here Comes the Bus and all the information you need to start the school year, visit the CCS Back-to-School website. The website will be your one-stop-shop for everything back-to-school: bus info, school calendars, enrollment and more. Please check the site often as it will be updated with new and timely information.

    Thank you for your continued support as we all work together to provide students with equitable access to engaging learning that prepares them to be collaborative, competitive, and successful in our global world.
