Waccamaw Elementary School
Dismissal/Pick Up Reminder:
In order for us keep our car lines moving quickly and safely, we need parents to download the mobile app., PiKMyKid and click the announce button. When our staff has to manually enter in your child's number it slows down the flow of traffic so we are asking for parents to do their part.
Information & instructions were given out at the beginning of the school year. If you need assistance downloading the app or if you are having technical issues, please directly contact PikMyKid at email@example.com. The school purchase of the app includes technical support. Special THANKS to our awesome PTO for purchasing the app for our school!!
Health & Safety:
- Please do not send your child to school if he/she is sick or not feeling well.
- Breakfast AND lunch are served in the classrooms in order to cut down on transitions through the school day & help mitigate COVID-19.
- Students are distanced 3 to 6 feet within the classrooms to the extent possible.
- Masks are recommended indoors, but not required. **Masks are required on school buses.**
We will continue to provide students with instruction &/or learning opportunities while out of the building. Quarantine situations vary so your child's distance learning will depend on their situation. Your child’s teacher will be reach out to you with details in regards to distance learning and provide details and materials.
Book Fair/Save the Date:
Our first Book Fair of the year is scheduled for October 11-15. Save the date!

For Dismissal: We will continue to use a program to help organize the school dismissal process and improve safety. This program is a phone application downloaded onto your smartphone called PikMyKid (found in the app store). This app will allow you to notify the school of pick-up changes and authorize others to pick-up your child from school as well as help organize the car line during dismissal.
Face Masks on the Bus:
All of our school buses will be equipped with an adequate supply of face coverings that meet CDC Order requirements. Bus drivers will remind students of the requirement and offer a face mask, if one is needed.
Good News Club Postponed
Charleston Wrap wrapping paper is great quality, but we hope you will consider shopping with us for your family Christmas gifts, corporate gifting, etc. The candies and nuts make great gifts for your businesses’ customers this Christmas. Money raised will go to support our Fine Arts program.
We also have an OPT OUT option - for those individuals that want to support our school directly and chose not to sell the products from Charleston Wrap. If someone wants to 'opt out' and donate $30 directly to WES PTO, they will get their name placed in the drawing for one of the 10 robo botz. If a $60 donation is given, their name will be placed x2, etc.
Thank you for supporting our school!
Deadline is September 8th. Have you registered yet?
