Update on 2020 graduation ceremonies for all RCS high schools
We understand that a letter from the Department of Social Services regarding the Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) cards was mailed out today and potentially contained incorrect guardian and/or address information. Since this information was collected at the state level, NCDPI and DSS have been made aware of the issues and are working together to correct errors in the data prior to issuing the cards later this month. At this time, there is no need to contact your school since this issue is being addressed at the state level.

Update On the Closure of North Carolina Public Schools
The county and municipal governments of Rutherford County executed a Joint Supplemental Proclamation of a State of Emergency this morning that includes a local stay-at-home order, effective from 6:00 AM on Saturday, March 28, 2020, through 6:00 AM on Friday, April 17, 2020. Late this afternoon, Governor Roy Cooper announced Executive Order No. 121 that includes a statewide stay-at-home order, which begins at 5:00 PM on Monday, March 30, 2020, and remains in effect for thirty (30) days unless repealed, replaced, or rescinded by another applicable Executive Order. In anticipation of questions you may have, RCS wants to provide guidance about the application of the local Proclamation and statewide Executive Order to Rutherford County Schools' remote learning, food service, and student support programs.
During an emergency management briefing earlier this week, Governor Roy Cooper announced through Executive Order No. 120 that North Carolina’s public schools will remain closed for students until at least Friday, May 15, 2020. As we continue to navigate an extended school closure, we want to share several important updates that we hope you will find helpful. Please click the link for additional details.
Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, Rutherford County Schools is pleased to provide iPads to students who are enrolled in grades K-2 upon the request of their parents or guardians. These optional devices are not intended to replace instructional packets for remote learning, but they will provide additional resources and opportunities for families who choose to supplement their children’s remote learning.
