Great Comeback

On behalf of Cumberland Polytechnic High School, I would like to welcome you to our Great Comeback 2021-2022 school year. This school year we are going to take extra precautions that will make sure our staff and students are safe. The following procedures will stay in place until social distancing protocols have been lifted:



-Students, staff, and any person that comes into our school will be required to wear a face covering.


-Students will not be issued lockers, we ask that students carry a mesh or clear book bag to store their belongings. If it is not economically feasible for your family to purchase a mesh or clear book bag we will work to find alternatives.


-All students are required to attend Virtual homeroom the first 10 days of school via Webex. Homeroom will be from 9:00am – 9:10am. A google doc has been shared with the virtual homeroom link.


-Meals will be consumed in classrooms. Our cafeteria is not large enough to social distance properly.


-School meals will be provided at no charge for students during the upcoming school year.


-Student schedules are available to view now in the PowerSchool Parent Module. We have also mailed schedules to each student.


-Student drop off time is 7:00am


-Student dismissal is at 2:30pm


-Bus transportation to your student’s home school will not be available until August 23.
