  • 2021-2022 COVID-19 Protocols

    We hoped we would be past COVID and related restrictions by the time the new school year started so that we would have a normal school year. But unfortunately, Alabama’s low vaccination rates coupled with increasing circulation of the Delta variant have forced schools across Alabama to institute COVID-19 protocols for the third consecutive school year. Listed below are the protocols and restrictions we will implement in the Cullman City School System to begin the 2021-2022 school year. Masks and Facial Coverings- Masks and facial coverings are strongly recommended while indoors, however they will not be required. This is subject to change based on positive COVID-19 cases on each campus, our area and the state of Alabama.

  • Elementary Summer Programs

    CCS will provide a summer literacy camp, extended school year services, and a Head Start summer program for pre-k students. Each of these programs will be hosted at East Elementary School during the month of June. Many of our teachers, nurses, lunchroom staff, and administrators will be working together to make sure these programs are a success. Summer literacy camp is a requirement of the Alabama Literacy Act. Teachers will undergo additional training in order to provide K-3 students with explicit reading instruction targeted to their specific needs. Students will also participate in STEM and art activities to promote oral language development. We have partnered with Cullman Electric Cooperative, the North Alabama Agriplex, and Cliff and Lindsay Harris to provide weekly educational programs for students in our summer programs. These programs will be aligned to science and social studies standards and will serve as an engaging way to build background knowledge and further strengthen students’ academic skills.
