CCS Transitions to ‘Plan A’ Following Spring Break

In alignment with state law and the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will transition to Plan A beginning Monday, April 12, 2021. The Cumberland County Board of Education approved plans to transition students in grades PreK-12 from Plan B to Plan A during a Special Board meeting Tuesday evening. 

Under Plan A, students in grades PreK-12 will be eligible to attend class in person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of each week. Wellness Wednesday will be an Independent Remote Learning Day for all students. School-based virtual learning options remain open to students.

Overview of Plan A in CCS:

  • Plan A does not require schools to reduce the usual number of students in the classroom. 
  • Plan A does not require social distancing on school buses. 
  • CCS will continue daily symptom and temperature screenings/checks for all students and any person who enters a school building. 
  • Social distancing protocols will be required for anyone who enters school buildings. CCS will continue to limit visitors in school buildings under Plan A. 
  • All students must wear face masks in school and on school buses. All staff must wear face masks in school buildings and offices. 
  • CCS will continue to provide PPE and face masks for students, teachers and staff.


Calendar Revision for April 1, 2021

Thursday, April 1 has been revised to be an asynchronous/independent remote learning day for students; it will be a required onsite workday for staff to finalize Plan A preparations prior to leaving for Spring Break.

Students in FSU or FTCC classes that require face-to-face instruction will attend those classes on Wednesday, March 31 and Thursday, April 1. This calendar adjustment does not impact our Year-Round schools and Cumberland (Virtual)
