In order to promote families staying home as much as possible while continuing to provide daily student breakfast and lunch, we are changing our meal distribution and delivery schedule. Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - families will receive three breakfast and lunch meals per child to cover meals for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. This will prevent families from having to leave their homes as often. If you are unable to come to one of the distribution sites located at Randolph Fire Department, the front of CMS, or at the Cartersville Rescue Squad tomorrow from 10:00 a.m -12:00 noon; are not already signed up for delivery; and would like the meals provided for the remainder of this week, please call Mrs. Sandra Raymond at 804-492-4212 between now and 4:00 p.m. today to be added to the delivery list. After tomorrow, our next distribution and delivery, including Backpack of Love bags, will be on Monday, April 6, 2020. We will be publishing a calendar of distribution and delivery dates by the end of the day. Again, we are still providing daily breakfast and lunch meals while keeping families and staff from leaving their homes to a minimum. I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and at home. We love and miss you!

Cumberland County Public Schools Frequently Asked Questions (Updated March 30, 2020): The closing of schools due to the Coronavirus pandemic has left staff, students, and families with many questions regarding school-related operations and activities. Here are responses to a few of the commonly asked questions. Please check back often as this page will be updated daily with the most current responses to questions that are important to you. https://www.cucps.k12.va.us/article/221488?org=cucps
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, CuCPS school buildings and offices are closed. Luckily, student breakfast and lunch distribution/delivery and learning continue. If you need to contact administration, teachers, or a staff member, the best way is through email. Email addresses can be found on our CuCPS webpage. If this is not possible, you can call 804-492-4212 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on weekdays. This number will be answered by Mrs. Sandra Raymond remotely. She will get your messages to the correct people. Thank you for being patient, flexible, and understanding with us.
Spring Sports Update: - VHSL will delay decision to provide options on spring sports season until May. - Due to this all Spring Sports/Activities will remain postponed indefinitely. - As more information is released by the VHSL and CuCPS Administration we will let you know.
Good Morning, CuCPS Family. There are a lot of unknowns regarding how CuCPS will proceed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Although our school buildings are closed, student learning is to continue. We will learn more from the Virginia Department of Education today on the expectations on how to proceed. Please be patient as we learn the expectations and then plan and prepare for remote learning. We hope to have answers for you by Friday and develop a Frequently Asked Questions document for our staff, families, and the community as a reference. However, I can tell you now that we are committed to providing breakfast and lunch meals to our students for the remainder of the school year and will still hold prom and graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 when it is safe to do so. My thoughts and prayers go out to each student, family, and staff member as we navigate through this time. We are here for you. If you need something, please reach out to me at 492-4212 or through email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Northam has decided to close all public and private schools until the end of the school year. We are promised that the Virginia Department of Education will provide guidance to all divisions in our efforts to provide continuity of instruction and food services during this time. Other areas on which we are to be given prompt guidance include: · Graduation Requirements · Awarding Standard Credit and Verified Credit (in the absence of SOL testing) · Closing the instructional gaps created by the loss of instruction. As these and many more questions are answered in the next few days, weeks, and months to come, I will make every effort to maintain communication with all our stakeholders. I understand these are uncertain times for us all. The decisions being made are unprecedented and there is no script to follow. However, I have no doubt we will get through this together, and we will come through this on the other side stronger, and more prepared to take on any future challenges. Be on the lookout for further information coming. In the meantime — stay safe, stay healthy, and stay home.

On Monday, books will be distributed with breakfast and lunch meals. We appreciate the Virginia Children's Book Festival for donating books for our children!
We are establishing a food delivery process for families that cannot get to one of the three distribution sites. We prefer participation in the drive-thru process at one of the distribution sites (Randolph Fire Department, front of CMS, and Cartersville Rescue Squad building) from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon; however, we do understand that some families or childcare providers are unable to get to the sites. If you are unable to get to a distribution site, please call your child’s school at 492-4212 between the hours of 2:00-3:00 p.m. and request a delivery for the next day. We will arrange meal delivery. Again, we prefer distribution through the drive-thru process; however, we do understand that this is not possible for all families. It is our hope to provide meals for every student at Cumberland County Public Schools and we encourage each family to participate.
Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, breakfast and lunch bags for CuCPS students will be available each weekday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at three locations: the Randolph Fire Department, in front of CMS, and at the Cartersville Rescue Squad building. Distribution will be done in a drive-thru manner. You will not need to get out of your car. We will bring the bagged meals to you. We ask that you keep the drive-thru lines moving. Learning packets will be mailed home on Wednesday. Please be on the lookout for your child’s packet. Your child’s Report Card will be included in the packet. As information evolves, plans may change. Thank you for being understanding, patient, and flexible. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you.

Everyone be safe and we will miss you. http://cumberlandva.apptegy.us/o/cucps/page/health-update--2
