Superintendent Dr. Butler, Board Chair Sandy Ellington-Graves, and Board Member Ryan Bowden toured Cummings High School today. The school is clean and smells great, thanks to hard work addressing affected areas. More work remains ahead district-wide, but it's exciting to see these improvements. We can't wait for the Cavaliers to fill these hallways again soon!

Graham Football Game Update: The football game between Graham High School and Bartlett Yancey was called off in the second quarter tonight due to safety concerns. The decision was made to stop play after the referee observed a laser beam pointed onto the field. Both teams' players and spectators were asked to promptly exit the stadium. There were no weapons reported, only the laser beam that prompted the decision. All attendees safely excited the stadium. The Graham Police Department, School Resource Officers, and ABSS Athletic officials are investigating the circumstances around this incident. At this time, no further details are available. The schools and athletic department thank everyone for their cooperation and regret that this game could not be completed as scheduled.
