Book Returns

Dear Parents and Families,


We would greatly appreciate it if you could look for any Ebinport books (lost or overdue library books, books sent home last spring during virtual learning, books borrowed from classrooms and not returned, etc.) and return them to school. When COVID first hit last spring, we continued to send books home and many have not been returned. Please take a few minutes and look in drawers, under beds, in the backseats of cars (they turn up in so many places!) for any Ebinport books. This does not include the library books or guided reading books that students currently have checked out. Thank you so, so much for helping us get these books back!

Help Us Build A Sensory Garden at Ebinport!

Here's a great opportunity to help our Ebinport kids and staff have some learning fun and better cope with the ongoing stress of the COVID-19 pandemic at the same time!


Help us "populate" our new Ebinport SENSORY GARDEN by donating items or providing funding support -- it is as easy as looking over the SignUp Genius list that the Ebinport SIC and PTO have created!


https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F044BA9A62FAAFE3-sensory


Donated items should be dropped off at the school. Look for the poster sign located outside the back gate near the cafeteria. Then, please email Principal Kelsey and Dave Keely that day to let them know you have left a donation for the Sensory Garden.

Volunteers will be "constructing" the new garden area during March, so stay tuned and let Principal Kelsey and Dave Keely know if you would like to help with that as well!

Social-Emotional Parenting Series

During the past 12 months, we have been faced with unprecedented changes to our way of life. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every fiber of our daily routine. Many schools and communities are grappling with how to help students as well as parents cope and deal with what many are calling a pandemic on two separate fronts. All sessions are free and will be hosted by Dr. James Lee with Global Health Psychiatry, LLC. Please use the link in the flyer to register. A ZOOM link will be emailed to you, so you can join the discussion.

COVID-19 Communication

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.
