The Cumberland County Schools (CCS) will operate on a two-hour delay on Friday, October 12, and 12-month employees and Central Services staff will report at their normal time (Option A). This decision was made after consulting with Cumberland County Emergency Management and local law enforcement officials.

The purpose of the delay is to ensure that bus drivers can safely operate in the daylight to avoid road dangers and to ensure the safe travel of students to school.

There will be no morning Prime Time and school breakfast will not be served.

Rockfish will open its doors at 9:20 a.m.  The first bell will ring at 9:40 a.m. and the tardy bell will ring at 9:45 a.m.  Please be safe!

Ms. Sharon Pringle wearing a pink top in front of the focus wall in her classroom.We are proud and excited to announce that Ms. Sharon Pringle, Rockfish teacher, was recently honored as WRAL’s Teacher of the Week.  When visiting Ms. Pringle’s classroom it is evident that she loves teaching and dearly loves her students.  Her instruction is delivered in an aided education classroom setting; however, that detail does not diminish the high expectations or goals she sets for her students.

Each Wednesday, during the traditional school calendar, WRAL features teachers who are deserving of honor for their overall integrity to deliver effective instruction and provide compassionate leadership in the classroom.  Rockfish congratulates and applauds Ms. Pringle for she is certainly worthy of that honor.

The clip featuring Ms. Pringle has been scheduled to air on WRAL during the morning news segment on Wednesday, September 26.  If you are unable to see or record it at that time, you may view it later at WRAL.com by typing teacher in the search box.  The clips are listed in order of dates that teachers are honored, so Ms. Pringle’s will be at or near the top.

Rockfish teachers are the best!  Ms. Pringle is the second teacher within a year to be honored as WRAL’s Teacher of the Week.
