From Steven W. Price, Superintendent
To: Our Cumberland Regional Family
I hope this update finds you all healthy and safe in your homes. I wanted to update you since Governor Murphy’s Order has slightly changed our Closure Plan.
Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24th, the District will only be open on Tuesdays from 8:30-11:30 AM. Five days of Meals will be available on Tuesdays in our Grab-and-Go line from 9:00-11:00 AM for anyone who needs them. Technology Support and Student Work Handout and Collection will be available the same time as our Meal Grab-and-Go service. We will continue to be available by email. If you need to reach us by phone, please call on Tuesday from 8:30-11:30 AM.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL STUDENTS COMPLETE ASSIGNED WORK WHILE THE SCHOOL IS CLOSED. I can not stress this enough. Attendance and credit can only to be given to students who complete their assignments. Student who fail to complete work will be marked absent and will most likely fail their courses for this semester. Poor attendance and failure to complete assignments will mean a loss of credits and may jeopardize graduation. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS COMPLETING THEIR WORK!
Our monthly Board of Education meeting will be held remotely through a teleconference. Access information will be available on our Website if you would like to “attend”.
Please contact us if you have any questions or need any assistance. We are here to help through this unprecedented time.

With a recommendation from the county Department of Health, we, and all Cumberland County schools, will be closing school Tuesday, March 17, 2020. This will include all school-related activities. We are taking proactive measures to control exposure and try to limit the potential spread of any cases in Cumberland County. To date, there are still no confirmed cases in our county. However, we will enact our plan as of Tuesday. We tentatively plan to be closed through Spring Break, with an anticipated return on April 15. I say tentative because that date is subject to many factors that we just don't have at present.
Students will access their assignments from the teachers’ websites. If you do not have internet access, work packets will be available for pick-up. Further communications will be available on our website and through email. Student attendance will be based on their continued work on assignments. Students must complete their assignments to earn credits for this semester.
Breakfast and lunch will also be available on a weekly basis. Please click here for details.
This is an uncertain time, and we will work through it together. We will keep you informed as new information comes to us. The building will be open during our closure, so please call us with any questions.
