Image of Cumberland County Schools Student Services logoDuring a typical school day, CCS students have access to a variety of Student Services professionals (counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses) and military-connected resources such as the Military Family and Youth Liaison, Military Student Transition Counselors, and Military Family Life Counselors. This staff assists students with social-emotional concerns. CCS anticipates that some students may experience difficulty as a result of anxiety or stress related to the illness or school closure.

Cumberland County Schools now has a Student Services Hotline. This phone number should only be used by CCS students. For an emergency, call 9-1-1. If a student has concerns about anxiety, depression, abuse, suicidal thoughts, or has no food, etc. a student should dial 910-475-1950.  A CCS counselor or social worker will be available Monday through Friday.
