Cherokee County Schools, Program Announcement
ACE At-home Curriculum Extension and Digital Learning Day
Governor Cooper announced an executive order affecting all K-12 public schools. As such, Cherokee County Schools will be closed for students beginning Monday, March 16, for at least two weeks. This closure affects all programming, including all after-school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices, and competitions, and weekend events.
The week of Monday, March 16, will be regular workdays for employees, including teacher’s assistants unless you are ill and wish to take sick leave. Please note that school nutrition employees will be reporting to assigned meal sites. School Nutrition will be operating 6 pick up sites: AES, PES, MCEMS, MES, HD, and Ranger. Students and parents of students may pick up two meals at once and pickup times at these schools are between 8 am and 1 pm.
In consultation with state and local leaders, we will determine a schedule to re-open school at a later date.
Our school system has prepared for closure. As such, Cherokee County ACE and Digital Learning Days will be in effect starting this week. Please check for information that was sent home on Friday, March 13. Resource links and information will also be posted on our website. If your child did not bring their device or an ACE packet home on Friday, we will formulate a plan to get those devices and resources to students. We will share those details with you soon.
For additional information on the ACE At-Home Curriculum Extension packets please contact your student’s principal. Principals will be monitoring their email and will respond to your questions as soon as possible. Principals may be reached at the following email addresses:
