The South Carolina General Assembly has approved funding for five additional days before the start of the 2020-2021 school year for students in grades Pre-K through 8th grade. These days have been identified as Learn, Evaluate, Analyze and Prepare (LEAP). Please note there are no LEAP days for 9th through 12th grade students.
All current social distancing guidelines will be followed. Your child may wear a mask. This is especially encouraged for older students, but is not mandatory. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Bus transportation will be provided if needed.
We will use the LEAP days to focus on the following for all students:
• Orienting students with new teacher(s)
• Diagnostic and assessment activities
• Social and emotional connections with peers and staff
• Establishing routines and procedures relating to Covid-19 (ex: social distancing)
While we have already invited selected students in grades K4-8, we would like to extend the invitation to anyone in these grade levels who would like to participate. If you are interested in your child attending and did not receive a letter, please contact your child's principal.
The students will attend August 3-7 from 8 am - 12 pm.
If you are taking part in the extended invitation, your child will be assigned one day to participate in the program.
