Governor Cooper closes NC Schools through at least May 15. Chat support for tech issues now available.
I hope that everyone had a good first day with their new At-Home Learning. We loved seeing all the photos that parents posted of their children’s new school setup on our Facebook page. Please keep them coming! Thank you to everyone for working with us to make the best of this global crisis affecting every single one of us.
We will continue sending out at least one update every day to keep our families up-to-date on our latest plans and will be answering your questions. Here are a few notable items from today:
NC Schools Closed Through at Least May 15
Today, Governor Cooper announced that all North Carolina schools will remain closed until at least May 15. We know that the announcement has created many questions. We will roll out more information soon, but please continue working on our At-Home Learning plan that began today.
Also, we will be closing our campuses on Wednesday for all things except our Grab-n-Go Meals at our 16 schools. We are working on alternative plans for our employees as we’ve been urged to allow everyone to work from home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Graduating Seniors Many pressing questions have been from our seniors and their families. North Carolina State Superintendent, Mark Johnson, said that NCDPI is working on plans for current seniors to graduate on time this year. It doesn’t mean that we will have a traditional commencement ceremony, due to social gathering requirements at that time, but they will still have the opportunity to graduate on-time. As we get closer to the end of the school year, and we know more about what is going on with COVID-19, we will update you on the state’s plans and our plans as well. But please rest assured that they will graduate!
Technology Support Now Offered On Our New Website Our technology team worked through the weekend to set up a live tech support chat on our new website. Here, you can get your school-related technology questions answered. There is also information on how to get internet service at home if you do not already have it.

CCS Storytime LIVE Today, I had the opportunity to do our first CCS Storytime LIVE on Facebook today at 2:00 PM and read Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. You can also watch it anytime with your children on our YouTube channel.
In Closing I can’t say it enough - thank you for your support and flexibility. Please use our new website for the latest updates and to get answers to many questions. I will continue to give updates at 2:00 PM on Facebook Live, as needed, and repost it on YouTube as well as send out daily emails.
Have a good evening,
