NCHSAA MEMO | Update from NCHSAA March 23, 2020

Having heard the updated information relative to schools remaining closed until the middle of May, NCHSAA interscholastic athletics will remain suspended until at least May 18.

The NCHSAA Board of Directors and staff will use the next few weeks to weigh our future decisions based on the new directions given by Governor Cooper, other government leaders, and organizations charged with public health and safety during this unprecedented time.  Such decisions will include the possible resumption of spring sports’ competition and the possibility of holding the state basketball championships.

While we remain hopeful that we will be able to resume competition, particularly for our senior student-athletes, we also recognize the need to protect the health and safety of our students, coaches and the communities we serve.

COVID-19 UPDATE: CCS ROLLS OUT PLAN TO KEEP STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES SAFE
Published by Dana Knight on March 25, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................
Fayetteville, N.C. – In response to Gov. Roy Cooper’s announcement to close all North Carolina Public Schools to limit the spread of COVID-19, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) officials created a plan to engage students in learning beyond the walls of the classroom.
During the two-week period, Cumberland@Home, a remote learning opportunity that will allow students to continue to learn beyond the classroom, will become a vital tool for retaining what has been learned this school year. Through the virtual-learning tool, all Pre-K through 12th grade materials will extend learning opportunities previously taught by classroom teachers. These review materials will help deepen students’ understanding and prepare them for the end-of-the-year standardized assessments.
“In light of the Governor’s executive order and the recommendations from heath officials, we are working expeditiously to keep our employees and students safe from the spread of COVID-19,” said Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “While we realize our students will not receive face-to-face classroom interaction for the next two weeks, we are confident that with the support of our parents and ‘teleworking’ educators, Cumberland@Home will keep our students moving in the right direction.”
Pre-K through 8th-grade students will complete paper-and-pencil assignments. Pre-K through 8th-grade materials may be picked up at the following locations (beginning Wednesday):
High school students will complete their assignments virtually via Google Classroom and Cumberland@Home.
Teachers will hold virtual office hours from 9 a.m. – noon daily to support students and parents. District staff will be available via a hotline with virtual hours for additional support.
Meals Pick-up Sites for Students
To provide meals for many CCS students during the two-week period, Child Nutrition Services will have curb-side pick-up meals for children ages 18 and younger. Each child will receive two meals: Lunch for the current day and a breakfast for the following day. The meal pick-up sites can be found here: http://bit.ly/mealpickup.
Work Schedule for CCS Employees
This afternoon, district officials announced that employees will observe Optional Workdays from Monday, March 16 – Monday, March 30. Beginning on Tuesday, March 17, Cumberland County Schools employees at schools and district offices will ‘telework’ through Monday, March 30, unless further direction is provided from the Governor or Health Director.

SMART Lunch

Smart Lunches

Terry Sanford is starting a new program this year called SMART Lunch. It stands for Students Maximizing Achievement Relationships & Time. Over the years we have seen a decrease in the number of students who are involved in campus and life and not able to stay after school for various reasons. SMART Lunch will provide ALL students an opportunity during the middle of the day to take part in academic and enrichment activities. Additionally, this will help build rigor, relevance, and positive relationships.

So how does will this work? We have restructured our daily schedule by reducing each class period and building the extra time in to an 85 minute block between 2nd and 3rd periods. Students using an online schedule program called FlexTime Manager will select one lunch period and two activities. They can plan their week(s) in advance. Teachers can also select students to attend activities as well.We are all excited about how SMART Lunch will “change the game” for ALL students Here…at FTS!
