Graduation Update from Superintendent Steve Price:
Dear Graduates and Families,
First, thank you for your patience. I know this is a trying time. The last thing I wanted to do is send change after change as the Governor continued to move us forward. I believe that would have been even more frustrating than waiting for answers. Today I would like to share some answers with you.
The week of June 14-17 will be “A Week of Celebration” for the Class of 2020. We will be live streaming all the senior awards ceremonies, one per day. The dates and times for each ceremony will be posted on our website and sent to all of you via email and social media.
On June 17, 2020, we will hold a diploma pick-up in front of the school during the afternoon. Mr. Aiello will share the details as we get closer. For now, we are blocking out the time between 12:00-4:00. We will also live stream a virtual graduation ceremony on June 17th at 6:00 PM.
The Governor has announced that we can do in-person graduation ceremonies. That is what we were waiting for – you deserve it! What we are still waiting for is the number of attendees we are allowed. I will be submitting our plan for an in-person traditional graduation ceremony for July 8th (July 9th is our rain date). We will most likely have to hold two ceremonies, 5:00 and 6:30, to adhere to social distancing. Students would be split alphabetically. If our application is approved, we will send all the plans and directions to you.
While we know this is not perfect, we want to help you celebrate in any way we can. Thank you again for your patience and congratulations! I hope to see you “on the grass” on July 8th!
Sodexo and the Cumberland Regional School District would like to share information on the impact of food services provided to the Cumberland Regional community during the month of April. A total of 4,445 meals were served to 178 students on a daily basis / 889 students on a weekly basis. We would like to recognize with appreciation the six frontline employees and volunteers who worked to safely prepare and serve these meals. Food services will continue to be provided through the remainder of the scheduled 2019-2020 school year.
Cumberland Regional administration would like to share details on expectations and procedures related to coursework and grading for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to review these guidelines to solidify their understanding of how we will be continuing to implement Remote Learning this year.
We would like to thank our school community for their engagement and support during this unprecedented time. Please feel free to reach out to CRHS administration or staff if you have any questions on these plans.4/15/20Good Morning, Cumberland Regional Family!
I hope you all enjoyed Spring Break. I also hope you were able to have a wonderful Easter in this strange time! Governor Murphy proclaimed last night that data proves we are on the “downside of the curve” and that our efforts of social distancing are working. The work, however, is not over. As he stated in a recent press conference, only the governor and re-open schools. I am hopeful in the fact that he has not ruled out open this year. We will wait for direction from his office.
Until then, we will continue with our present course. Work will continue to go out from the teachers. Meals will be given out on Tuesdays. And I must again urge all of our students to hand work in. Handing in your work recognizes your attendance and gives you credit for your course. Failure to hand in work jeopardizes promotion for next year whether that is moving up a grade or graduating.
Please know that we are holding off making decisions to eliminate any end-of-year activities at this point. Our hope remains that we may be able to get back before the close of this school year. We will make alternate plans if we get word that schools will be closed for the remainder of the year. Until then, stay safe and healthy – and get that work done!
Please contact us by email if you have any questions.

Cumberland Regional High School is closed indefinitely due to the Novel Coronavirus/COVID-19. This includes all school-related activities.

Districts will reopen by order of Gov. Phil Murphy when he and his office determine it is safe to do so.

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 two days a week. 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.
