The coronavirus pandemic has increased isolation and confusion for young children and their families due to the need for physical distancing and at-home learning. Finding engaging ways to support children’s early development is more important and more challenging than ever. VPM is proud to offer Circle Time at Home, a program that brings a familiar school routine into the home. Host and educator Ms. Gaby leads engaging and interactive family-centered learning, focused on social emotional, language, cognitive, and physical health areas of development. Aligned with Virginia’s Pre-K and Kindergarten learning standards, this new half-hour program from VPM premieres tomorrow, September 14, and airs Monday-Friday at 10:30 am on VPM PLUS. View a short clip by clicking the image above and read more HERE. Please feel free to pass this on to family, friends, and neighbors who have young children in their lives! For information on the full scope of educator-informed shows and resources from VPM, visit vpm.org/homelearning.
First, we'd like to share that Ms. Kathryn Garrett has accepted the huge responsibility to oversee Food Services while our division conducts the very difficult task of replacing Mr. Bill Brandt. Mr. Brandt will be missed by our CUCPS Family. This is a meal update from Ms. Garrett regarding changes to our feeding program. "We provide meals for students at CuCPS, whether we are learning in person or remotely. What changed last week is that we have been given the opportunity to feed even more children in Cumberland county, not just those enrolled in CUCPS. We received word from the VDOE last week that we are able to continue our Summer Feeding Program at least through December 2020. In the Summer Feeding Program we are able to feed any child in Cumberland county, 18 years old or younger. This means that any child in Cumberland county may receive the meals; they do not have to be enrolled in CuCPS. When we return to the National School Lunch Program, we are permitted to feed school-aged children enrolled in CuCPS." Please spread the word so families are aware of this opportunity. No child in Cumberland county should go without meals. This is wonderful for our families.
Free Vision Screenings for CCES Students on Distribution Day, Tuesday, 9/8/2020. VDOE requires all K & Grade 3 students to have their vision screened, so we have partnered with CONEXUS to make this happen. You may remember that they donated free prescription glasses to our students last year too! When you come to Distribution Day, we will route students in grades K and 3 to get an almost drive-through screening - students will enter the building in a Covid-safe manner for a quick screening. If you have an elementary school student in another grade and you would like to have the screening too, just drive up and they will provide this service as time permits. Did we mention that it's FREE? Aren't you glad that you're a Duke? :)
Just a reminder that WIFI connections are available at CMS, Mama D's Country Store, Shiloh Church, Raman's Midway Market, Jones Chapel Church, Cartersville Rescue, & will be at Rocky Mount Church on Thursday! #iamcucps
On Thursday, August 20, Cumberland Elementary School will host a distribution day. We will distribute devices, library books, and the next ten days of school work. We will also collect completed work, as well as any forms from Open House that you filled out. Please bring the binder or plastic envelope that was given to you at Open House and your student’s completed school work, and we will exchange it for a new one with new assignments. Also, if you were issued a flash drive, please bring it back so that we can upload more videos. Hours for Distribution Day are 9:00-11:00 AM and again from 4:00-7:00 PM. We will be set up outside of Cumberland Elementary School. This is a very important day to ensure students have what they need for the next 2 weeks of instruction. See you there!
CCES Drive-thru Open House has been rescheduled for Tuesday, August 11 between 9:00-11:00 or 3:00-7:00. Meet our staff, pick up supplies needed for remote learning, enjoy some food and more. You won't want to miss this. Go Dukes!
You may pick up your child's personal belongings that were left when we closed in March, next week. Pick-up at the LPJ Center between 10:00 and 2:00, Tuesday, July 28th or Wednesday, July 29th.
