COVID-19 UP TO DATE INFORMATION

Fayetteville, N.C. – In an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Roy Cooper announced the closure of all North Carolina Public Schools earlier today.

Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will be closed for students beginning Monday, March 16 through at least Monday, March 30, according to an email from State Superintendent Mark Johnson. This includes the Prime Time Before and After School Program.

Monday, March 16 will remain a teacher workday for employees. As the district learns more, information will be sent to employees regarding work schedules.

CCS believes that its students deserve to have equitable access to engaging learning that prepares them to be collaborative, competitive, and successful in our global world. While the district cannot replace the value of the teacher-student interaction in the classroom, educators are working to provide supplemental resources and activities that will help students remain engaged in learning while schools are closed.

The district is finalizing a plan to provide meals to students while they are out of school.

CCS will provide updates about the reopening of schools on a regular basis as district administrators monitor this situation and receive updates from the state.

Families are encouraged to visit the CDC website for the most accurate and timely information about the virus. For more information, visit: www.cdc.gov/COVID19 and for additional guidance visit  www.coronavirus.ccs.k12.nc.uswww.co.cumberland.nc.us/covid19, and www.ncdhhs.gov/.

Sherwood Park is a PBIS School! Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students.  This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.

The foundation of PBIS at Sherwood Park Elementary School is our “Bear Code”, which has the three building-wide expectations:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible

In addition to our “Bear Code” expectations, PBIS has five other components: 1) a behavior matrix which explains behavior expectations in each school setting; 2) direct teaching of the expectations; 3) PBIS recognition4) tracking sheets to record and address appropriate/inappropriate behaviors; and 5) voice levels to maintain appropriate voice levels throughout the building.
