In order to volunteer in your child’s classroom, you will need a current Volunteer Background Check on file with the County Office. A Background Check is also required if you would like to go along on a field trip with your child and for parents who invite a friend to sit with their child for lunch in the Cafeteria. Background Checks typically take anywhere between 7 to 10 business days to process and are good for 2 years.

Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School Families,
As this first quarter comes to a close please take time to celebrate with your students all of their hard work and dedication towards academic and behavioral growth they have made this school year. Our entire staff has worked diligently to provide a successful start to the school year, and we hope that you are also sharing these successes at home.
Report cards, information on our district level tardy policy, and benchmark/assessment results will be sent home with all students on Wednesday, November 6th. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your students’ teachers on how you can best support learning at home. Cabarrus County Schools has also released a multitude of resources including frameworks for delivering instruction, yearlong curriculum units, and information on grading and reporting practices on the CCS Parent and Family Resources page (found here).
