Cumberland County Schools Prepares for 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 time for the Kindergarteners to become familiar with the Kindergarten staff and classrooms as well as give teachers an opportunity to conduct individual assessments to understand each child's strengths and needs, each elementary school will assign incoming  Kindergarten students one day to attend school during the first week of school (August 23-26, 2021). Schools will notify families of the assigned Kindergarten Staggered Day by August 9, 2021.

On Friday, August 27, 2021, 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 of teacher assignments via phone call and email prior to Open House.

Beginning on Monday, August 30,  2021, 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.
