Census data ensures our schools receive their fair share of resources. Ensuring every resident in South Carolina is counted during the 2020 census will help our schools for the next 10 years. Please go to www.my2020census.gov and complete your census today. Share this post and tag three friends challenging them to complete their census! #CountMeInSC #SCCounts2020
This is the message I sent to parents regarding a parade. I know this is a disappointment for some, but know this decision doesn't come lightly.
As I mentioned in the previous newsletters, SFES will not be participating in a teacher parade at this time. While we would love nothing more than to see our students, but we made this decision based on keeping our families safe and healthy. Other schools have decided to do them or not to do them based on their students and teachers. Our zone includes many town-homes and apartment complexes in which it would be almost impossible for families to view the parade without crowding together. We want to take seriously the Governor’s orders to have no groups more than three and encourage our families to stay safe with social distancing. We are going to err on the side of caution to do what is best for our school family. With over 1,000 cases in the state and almost 60 in York County (with many being in 29715), we feel this is the best decision. We promise to hold a parade when everything is safe and we will continue to send videos to show the kids how much we love them. I apologize for any disappointment and wanted to clarify our decision. Thank you for understanding and please let me know if you have questions.
Quote of the Week
― Bill Watterson
And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining
When I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good
