Cleveland County School District to use AMI days on Thursday and Friday


The Cleveland County School District has elected to transition to AMI days beginning on Thursday due to staff shortages. The announcement was made in a letter from Superintendent Craig Dupuy on Tuesday afternoon.

“Due to staff shortages from COVID-19, as well as the rapid increase in positive cases and quarantines, the Cleveland County School District will be closed on Thursday, January 13 and Friday, January 14, 2022 to onsite instruction. The days will be counted using Days 1 and 2 for AMI at (Rison High School) and Days 2 and Day 3 at (Rison Elementary School). Paper packets and or Google classroom assignments will be sent home with your child (Wednesday) from their respective school.

All staff will report at 8 a.m. Thursday and Friday to their respective building and work from their own classrooms to monitor email for students working on AMI packets who may have questions. All staff will have a common lunch break from 11:30-12:15. Staff will then report back to their own classroom and finish the work days dismissing at 3 p.m.

Normal school operations will resume on Tuesday, January 18 at regular bell time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope this break will slow down the ramp up in cases that we have been seeing over the past several days.

Please continue to keep our District Point of Contact, Stefanie Wilson, updated for students that become positive during time out of school.”
