School Cash Online allows families to make online payments for school fees
Fayetteville, N.C. – No cash handy? No problem. Parents and caregivers of Cumberland County Schools (CCS) students are now able to make online payments for school fees, thanks to School Cash Online. The fast, safe and convenient payment system allows users to pay for yearbooks, field trips, school events and more with the click of a button.
“We are excited to announce the launch of School Cash Online,” said CCS Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “The online platform offers tremendous benefits to parents, guardians, staff and students, and it will help staff manage school funds more efficiently. School Cash Online is our preferred method of payment moving forward.”
To register for a School Cash Online account, visit bit.ly/ccsschoolcashonline. Registered users can view payment history and receive receipts via email.
School Cash Online is managed by the KEV Group, which has helped over 6,600 schools manage their cash in the easiest way possible for 18 years.
        
NCIMS Cell Phone Policy
Published by Pamela Sands on January 17, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................
This is a reminder of the NCIMS Cell Phone Policy from the student handbook.

If a phone is confiscated:
1.  The teacher will take it and check it in at the front desk.
2.  The school receptionist will let you know which offense it is and where and when it can be picked up.
3.  The teacher will call the parent and explain the incident.

Cell phones will not be kept in the classroom or given back by the teacher; this contradicts the policy and makes it hard to be fair and consistent.

 

Cell Phones, Technology Devices, and other Personal Items:

  • All student electronic devices should be kept in their lockers after they are released from morning supervision unless instructed by an adult in the building.
  • Cell phones should not be visible and will be confiscated if seen being used on campus during the instructional day.
  • Students are not permitted to use their cell phones to take pictures, text, or make phone calls during the instructional day.
  • If a student is caught using their cell phone to take pictures, text, or make phone calls during the instructional day, then it will be confiscated.
  • If a student has an emergency, then the student is permitted to use the school phone to make contact with the parent.
  • Students should not bring personal items to school. Items will be confiscated, tagged, and picked up in the main office by the parent.
  • Teachers may be using technology with students and request students bring tablets, iPads, or cell phone for instructional purposes.  Teachers will send home information in writing so that parents are aware of the request.
  • Other than instructional purposes under the direct supervision of teachers, students should not have any electronic devices out or use electronic devices during the school day. If this occurs, the electronic device will be confiscated and a parent will need to pick up the item from administration.
  • The school is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or broken electronic devices that are brought to the school.

Consequences:
1st Offense- confiscated for 24 hours
2nd Offense- confiscated for 48 hours
3rd Offense- confiscated for 96 hours
4th Offense- confiscated for 120 hours
Electronic devices can only be picked up in the front office by the parent during school hours.
