Online Registration Information

2022-2023 School Year

Be Kind, Work Hard, Be Brave

Note From Principal Graham

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. We are excited about school starting soon. To get prepared for that, school registration is expected to be launched next week. If you have not created your Parent Portal account, please contact the school at 803-821-0100 and we will be glad to help.


To get ready for the online registration process, you will need the following items to upload:

  • Current email address
  • Current utility bill/statement, lease/mortgage statement, or property tax statement showing parent’s name and home address within the district for proof of residency
  • Parent’s South Carolina driver’s license or other state or federal photo identification
  • Completed South Carolina Certificate of Immunization only if you are a new Lexington District One student or have been notified by your school nurse of necessary immunizations.


Look for an email next week from the school district to let you know that online registration has opened.


What is the Difference Between Enrollment and Registration?

A common question we get is what is the difference between enrollment and registration? Great question and we want to provide clarification.


Enrollment - Families new to the Oak Grove attendance area complete the enrollment process online to have their child become a student at OGE. Enrollment is done one time only.


Registration - Registration is done every summer online to pay school fees, fill out needed forms, put lunch money on student's account, complete bus forms, etc. Everyone will do registration every summer, generally in late July, including brand new students. Registration is to be completed before the first day of school.

Lunch Costs

For two years, public schools across the country, including Lexington District One, provided no-cost breakfast and lunch meals to all students thanks to waivers through the United States Department of Agriculture associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This federal funding and waiver system expired on June 30, 2022, and Congress did not extend the program.


Therefore, students will be required to begin paying for meals again when school begins in August, unless they qualify for the Free and Reduced Meals Program.


If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, you MUST complete this online application. The online applications is now open.


We encourage families to complete the meal benefit application as soon as possible to ensure their student is able to enjoy low-cost, nutritious meals when school starts in August.


For families who do not qualify for free or reduced meals, meal prices for next school year (2022–23) are listed below:


Lunch
Elementary: $3.30
Secondary: $3.30
Employees and Visitors: $4.50
Milk: $0.60


Breakfast
Elementary: $1.80
Secondary: $1.80
Employees and Visitors: $2.90

Thank you for your understanding as we adjust our program based on federal guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Summers at 803-821-1231.
