Face Mask and Social Distancing
We will continue to utilize the 6 feet social distancing where possible. Where 6 feet is not possible or the 3 feet allows us to serve more students more efficiently, we will utilize this option. Our top priority is keeping all of our students and staff safe.

Support Military Students in April #PurpleUpCCS
Worldwide, April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, and
CCS is excited about supporting more than 13,000 military-connected students across the district. As part of the Month of the Military Child, CCS has identified April 16, 2021, as “Purple Up Day.” Everyone is encouraged to wear “Cumberland Purple” attire, showing all military students that the community recognizes their tremendous service and the sacrifices they make every day.
“CCS serves the third-largest concentration of military-connected students in the world behind Killeen Independent School District and Virginia Beach City Schools,” said Howard Lattimore, the district's Military Liaison. “Military students are faced with many transitions, changes and hardships. We encourage our school leaders, families and community members to salute our smallest heroes— military children —on ‘Purple Up Day.’”
Why purple? Purple symbolizes all branches of the military. It is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue. The Month of the Military Child is recognized by the Military Child Education Coalition, which supports all military-connected children by educating, advocating, and collaborating to resolve education challenges associated with the military lifestyle.
