Kindergarten Staggered Entry

Excitement is in the air as elementary schools across Cumberland County Schools (CCS) make preparations to welcome Kindergarten students to the classroom.  To allow ample time for teachers to conduct critical Kindergarten assessments and prepare for a successful school year, each elementary school will assign incoming Kindergarten students one day to attend school during the first week of school (August 29-September 2, 2022).  Schools will notify families to the assigned Kindergarten Staggered Day by August 5, 2022.

A downloadable flyer is available here


On Friday, September 2, 2022, elementary schools will invite kindergarten students and their families to attend a Kindergarten Open House to meet their assigned teacher for the school year.  School Staff will notify parents/families to teacher assignments via phone call and email prior to Open House.



Beginning on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, all Kindergarten students will follow the normal school schedule with their teacher of record.  School staff will direct Kindergarten students to their assigned classes.



Families with questions about the Kindergarten Staggered Entry Day may contact their child's elementary school or call the Elementary Curriculum & Instruction Services Department at (910) 678-2422.
