KCS Cares encompasses our ongoing commitment to meet the nutritional, social/emotional, and overall developmental needs of our students. This includes our food services, “check-in” calls on students, positive messaging to students, assessment of any social/emotional support needed, special support for EL, EC, and AIG students, and various learning opportunities for social/emotional and character education. Many resources on our new web page are geared toward KCS Cares. We appreciate the work of our Child Nutrition staff, bus drivers, teacher assistants, school psychologists, social workers, counselors, and many others, in helping us support our students’ needs. Finally, KCS Cares also involves our many, many community partners, agencies, faith-based supporters, etc., who give countless hours to our KCS community.
Kannapolis City Schools has a partnership with charity fundraising app Purposity. The iOS and Android app works by pairing prospective donors with the opportunity to help a local student or family in need in the form of a one-time, item-specific donation. We are continuing to gather needs from our students and families.
If you have questions or need non-emergency assistance during this extended school closure, please contact the KCS Non-Emergency School Helpline at 704-920-2222.
