A Bi-Monthly Message from Dr. Chris Lowder, Superintendent

    Cabarrus County Schools continues to address the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our district. No doubt these are challenging times for our county, state, country and world. CCS is committed to doing all that we can to keep our students and staff healthy and safe.
     
    Our work with community partners at Cabarrus Health Alliance, as well as city and county officials, continues. They’re all excellent partners, and we are grateful for their guidance and support during this unprecedented time.
     
    We know that for many of our students the meals they receive at school each day are the only or the most nutritious ones they will receive, and we are pleased that our School Nutrition Program is providing meals to children ages 1-18 during our closure. The meals are available at 40 sites throughout our community. A list of pick-up sites is available on the School Nutrition website. Click the Locations for School Meals button at the top of this page.
     
     In addition to the measures we have put in place for our students, we also are providing opportunities for our employees to continue working. We are doing that in a number of ways – offering staggered schedules, alternative work locations to comply with social distancing guidelines, working from home (where applicable) and teleconferencing/virtual meetings. Employees should continue to follow the reporting guidance provided by the Finance Department.
     
     We also are offering students opportunities to supplement their learning while they are at home. You can access this information from the Extended Home Learning icon on our district website. These resources, which also are available in paper copies at our schools, are designed to help students keep their skills sharp.
