If your child’s medications are not picked up by Friday, June 4th at noon, they will be destroyed. Please call the health room with any questions at 355-6767.

COVID-19 Reporting Reminders
- Remember that wearing a mask is required for all students and staff when entering and exiting the building. Whenever six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained, masks will be worn inside the classroom. Masks will also be worn during transitions from class to class.
- Remember that social distancing of at least six feet is critically important. DHEC requires an exclusion from school for 10-14 days for anyone who tests positive for COVID and all close contacts.
- Close contacts are defined as individuals who spend at least 15 cumulative minutes within six feet of a person while he/she is contagious with COVID. This requirement is not impacted by wearing masks; so even if individuals wear a mask and do not socially distance, they will be excluded from school/work. Individuals with COVID are believed to be contagious for up to 48 hours before they develop symptoms or test positive (if asymptomatic).
Students with symptoms of COVID-19 should be excluded from school if they have any one of the following with or without fever:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing -or-
- Loss of taste or smell -or-
- New or worsening cough

Correct Address Information
As we are preparing for the registration for 2021-2022, it is important that we have your correct address information on file. This information determines the school your student will attend next year. In addition, final reports cards are mailed at the end of the school year to the address we have on file. All address changes require proper documentation to be presented to the school.
If you have moved or will be moving, please contact our school registrar, Kathy Monaghan, for additional information at 864-355-6774.
Levels of Protection
Student IDs and Temporary IDs
Students are required to wear their school issued picture ID everyday while on campus. If a student doesn’t have their school issued ID, they will be given a yellow temporary sticker ID for the day.
Each quarter, a student will be given 4 temporary ID’s without penalty. Upon receiving their 5th temporary ID, the student will serve a half day of In School Suspension (ISS). Upon the receipt of their 10th temporary ID, the student will be assigned 1 full day of ISS. Record of temporary ID’s will be reset at the start of each quarter.
New picture ID’s can be purchased in the Media Center for $5.00.
