Weather Make-Up Days

Please continue to include the following statement on your newsletters and webpages. We need to give our parents and students plenty of notice.

“The school day missed due to inclement weather on January 25th will be made up on May 31st, the last designated inclement weather make-up day on our calendar. May 26th will be a full day; the last two days, May 27th and 31st, will be half days.”

Faculty Meeting - April 12th

All certified staff must attend our faculty meeting on April 12th. Mrs. Raffety will conducting this year's SC-READY training and it is imperative that all staff be appropriately trained ... even those who do not teach 3rd - 5th grades.

2016-2017 Contracts

Please let me know if your are having any difficulty accessing your 2016-17 contract. You should have received an email from TalentEd on the evening of March 30th with a link to your electronic contract. Signed contracts are requested back on April 15th. The absolute deadline for contract return is 4pm on April 25th.

Playground Safety

Please be sure that all students are being carefully supervised when outside. Students find creative uses for playground equipment and often their choices are unwise. Continue to remind all students of appropriate play and usage of equipment.

We will conduct regular sweeps of the playground areas - looking for fire ants and wasp nests - now that spring has arrived. Please let the office know if you see anything of concern.

Make-Up Hours

We have only 7 hours left to make up from our days missed due to weather.

Remaining 7 Hours

Last day for staff will now be Wednesday, June 1st (Student last day will be Tuesday, May 31st)
