Local Elementary School Temporarily Shifts to Remote Learning

Students attending Sunnyside Elementary Schools will temporarily transition to virtual remote learning from October 5-15 because of multiple positive COVID-19 cases within their school building. The students are scheduled to resume face-to-face learning on October 18. 

Families will be contacted by Cumberland County Schools' Office of Health Services with quarantine guidelines if their child is identified as exposed. 

In the meantime, district officials have asked parents to continue to monitor their child's health and the health of their families for COVID-19 symptoms, which include a fever, runny nose, and cough. Vomiting and diarrhea have also been reported in some children. Parents have been encouraged to consult with their primary care provider if their child develops COVID-19 symptoms. 

In alignment with recommendations from health officials, CCS continues to encourage parents, students, teachers, and staff to take the following critical actions to reduce transmission in schools:

  • Everyone over the age of 12 get vaccinated as quickly as possible
  • Follow the requirements in the imminent hazard abatement order to wear a mask in indoor settings, on and off campus
  • Stay home and get tested when you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms
