Help Us Build A Sensory Garden at Ebinport!
Here's a great opportunity to help our Ebinport kids and staff have some learning fun and better cope with the ongoing stress of the COVID-19 pandemic at the same time!
Help us "populate" our new Ebinport SENSORY GARDEN by donating items or providing funding support -- it is as easy as looking over the SignUp Genius list that the Ebinport SIC and PTO have created!
Donated items should be dropped off at the school. Look for the poster sign located outside the back gate near the cafeteria. Then, please email Principal Kelsey and Dave Keely that day to let them know you have left a donation for the Sensory Garden.
Volunteers will be "constructing" the new garden area during March, so stay tuned and let Principal Kelsey and Dave Keely know if you would like to help with that as well!
Virtual Academy Intent for Next School Year
As we plan for next school year, we need to hear from all families with students currently enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through 11th grade. The Rock Hill Schools Virtual Academy, which has served more than 6,500 students this school year, will be back for the 2021-2022 school year. We need to know if you would like for your child to participate in the online learning program. Please complete the intent form whether you intend for your child to attend in-person or virtual next school year. Forms must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 7.
The goal of the 2021-2022 Rock Hill Schools Virtual Academy is to provide a rigorous and robust K-12 education through a virtual school platform. Students in the Virtual Academy are students of the Rock Hill Schools. The purpose of this survey is to confirm your intent for student enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year. Because this form allows you as parents/guardians to choose if your child will be in the Virtual Academy or will come to school in person, it is important that you have read the overview of next year’s virtual academy offerings prior to completing the intent form.
To complete the Virtual Academy Intent Form, parents will need to have their child's student ID number available. This information was provided to parents on Tuesday, February 23. Please contact your child's school for additional assistance.
This intent form serves as one step in the enrollment process for 2021-2022. Later in the spring, you will receive more detailed information about completing your child’s enrollment in Rock Hill Schools.
Social-Emotional Parenting Series
During the past 12 months, we have been faced with unprecedented changes to our way of life. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every fiber of our daily routine. Many schools and communities are grappling with how to help students as well as parents cope and deal with what many are calling a pandemic on two separate fronts. All sessions are free and will be hosted by Dr. James Lee with Global Health Psychiatry, LLC. Please use the link in the flyer to register. A ZOOM link will be emailed to you, so you can join the discussion.

Please contact an administrator or the school nurse (Rhonda Cranford, RN, direct line:803-981-1564) if your student tests positive for Covid-19 or is in close contact with a person who has tested positive.
Communication this school year is key in the prevention and spread of the Covid-19 virus.
What does it mean to be a close contact of someone with COVID-19?
Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 for at least several minutes (usually about 15 minutes). The virus is spread primarily from person to person through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose. That is why it is so important to wash your hands often and clean frequently touched surfaces at least daily.
