Ebinport Family Engagement Survey
It is hard to believe that it is already October! The first month of school has flown by. Whether you are virtual or face to face, we hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe as we adjust to this new normal. The teachers and staff at Ebinport appreciate all of the support that you have given to make this year successful.
Over the past few years, Ebinport Elementary School has worked very hard to improve communication and family engagement. These have been focus areas for Mrs. Kelsey, Mrs. Lowdermilk, all Ebinport teachers, and our School Improvement Council. Because of our unique situation this school year, we want to make sure that you continue to stay informed and engaged. Please fill out this brief survey. It will close on October 23, 2020. Your answers will help us determine areas for improvement. Thank you for your time!

Next PTO Meeting
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.
