Tuesday Talk from Mr. Gaines

The Principal's Pen

Happy Tuesday!


LinkIt! Form B testing began today in our ELA classes. I am challenging our scholars to put their best effort forward on this assessment. Parents and guardians, please join me by ensuring your child is logged into class on time. LinkIt! Form B allows us to assess the progress your child has made since the fall administration so that future instruction can be tailored to meet the needs of your child. The Instructional Method Change Form is now open and accepting responses. The form will close on Friday, January 22nd at 4:00 p.m.

All Florence 1 Schools will return to the three previous forms of instructional delivery on Monday, January 25, 2021. We look forward to seeing our A/B and 5 Day students back on campus. Our phone lines are active Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. If you have a question or need assistance, call 843-664-8467 or 843-758-6762. Please continue to stay safe and well.


Jeffery A. Gaines
