  • Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
    It is so hard to believe that we are now in the second nine weeks of school, and nearing the end of October. We had a very successful first nine weeks of school, and we are most appreciative for your support and your role in your child’s education.
    As you know, we are still operating on a hybrid model for school, with students attending school on A days or B days. We are also continuing to offer a virtual academy. As we make plans for our second semester of school, it is very important to us to gain your input and feedback.
    Please take a moment to complete the survey below in regards to a return for face-to-face instruction during the second semester of school. We ask that you complete the survey by Thursday, November 5th.
    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

  • Important Information from Dr. Hembree

    We are thrilled to welcome back our Chiefs this week!  We have waited for this week for a long time, and we cannot wait to see everyone!  As we begin back tomorrow, we wanted to make everyone aware of a few items.  

    • All students will need to wear a mask upon entering school and on all school buses.  All car riders will also need to wear a mask upon getting out of the vehicle and walking into school.  Students will be asked to wear a mask throughout the instructional day.  
    • Each student will have his/her temperature taken upon arrival to school.  If students have a fever, they will be taken to our designated isolation room (one per school) and will remain there until a parent/guardian can pick them up.  
    •  We will begin meal deliveries this week.  Students will be provided with breakfast and lunch on the “off days” if participating in a hybrid model, and of course will be provided with breakfast and lunch each day if participating in our virtual academy.  All students will be provided with breakfast and lunch on Fridays as well.  If you do not wish to receive these meal deliveries, please contact our cafeteria manager, Mrs. Deborah Walls.  However, if you wish to receive the meal deliveries and do not receive them, please contact Mrs. Walls as well.
    • Lastly, you will be receiving some guidance from our district nurse, Mrs. Marjorie Batchelor, which outlines DHEC policies and procedures that we will follow.  Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or need additional guidance as it pertains to COVID-19 and the procedures we will follow.

    Let’s have a great first week back, Chiefs!  The best is yet to come.
