The Cumberland County Board of Education has approved a waiver of Policy 4316 (Student Dress Code, School Uniform Requirements) for the 2020-2021 school year only, as allowed by Policy 2450 (Suspension of Board Policies), due to the financial impact of COVID-19. However, families still have the option to allow students to wear uniforms when Blended-Remote and Face-to-Face Learning is in operation. There will be no consequences imposed upon a student for a uniform violation during the 2020-2021 school year.

Graphic of person readingPlease encourage your child to read every day. Research shows that reading 20 minutes or more every day has many benefits. Children who read or who are read to every day have better listening and thinking skills. They also earn better grades in school and on tests. There are even studies that prove that people who read every day earn more money in the workplace.  Please continue to read to and with your child daily.
