We want to remind parents to please keep your child/children at home if one of them is showing symptoms of the Covid virus or someone in the household is being tested, has tested positive, or is showing symptoms. We are making every effort to control the spread of the virus at school, but we all need to do our part. If you are unsure of your child’s symptoms, please call the school and speak to our school nurse, Kelly Smith. Nurse Smith is making sure we follow all CDC and DHEC guidelines. We encourage adults and students to wear a mask while in the building, but it is not mandated at this time.
Thank you parents for your cooperation and efforts in making our school a safe place to learn.
If your student rides a bus to and from school, it is important that an adult be visible to the driver at the bus stop in the morning and afternoon.
Consistent school attendance is important to your child’s academic, social and emotional development. Please see that only illness prevents your child from attending school. Any student who misses school must present a written note signed by a parent or physician. After 3 consecutive unlawful absences or a total of 5 unlawful absences, intervention plans will be developed with the parent to improve student attendance.
Please read your student handbook that is available on our webpage or a printed copy can be sent home at your request.
Students are not able to use the water fountains at this time. Please send a water bottle/container to school with your child each day. Your child can refill this at a sink as needed.
At morning drop off, please make sure your children are unbuckled, finished eating, have book bag and lunchbox in hand, and are ready to exit the car when it stops. Children in 1st-4th grades are asked to exit the car by themselves as soon as the car stops. They should not wait for someone to open the door for them. Also, please pull your car all the way up to the car in front of you. This helps the line move faster in the morning.
To help us speed up dismissal in the afternoon, please cut your tag in half on the dotted line and make sure your car tag is displayed sitting up in the front windshield of your car, or attached to the passenger visor so it can be easily seen by the caller and the adults on duty until after your child is safely in the car. Tags that are laying on the dash are difficult to see and slow down the flow of dismissal. There are several examples of good tag placement on the right. Also, please do not get out of your car in the drop off/pick up area. If you need to buckle your child’s seatbelt, please pull over, out of traffic, at the ballfield to buckle up. Thank you for your help!
Dillon District 3 has purchased Student Accident Insurance that covers supervised and sponsored school activities. If you are interested in extending the insurance, you can get a brochure with additional information and purchase prices from the school office.
PHONE NUMBER UPDATE
Please make sure to let the school know if your phone number has changed. We send out calls and texts to remind you of things happening at school and we don’t want you to miss our updates!
If your child rides a bus, we will send out a phone message if the bus will be arriving at your house late. PLEASE make sure we have your correct phone number and that you have not blocked the school’s phone number.
The District is using a new communication tool to send information to parents. You can receive phone calls as well as texts from the District, school and your child’s teacher. This tool is just for sending information. You will not be able to respond to anything that you receive. If you have blocked the school or district number, you will not receive any messages at all from any sender. Please make sure that you have a working phone number on file with the school and if it changes, please let us know as soon as possible. Texts that you receive will come from 606-80.
Please make sure your child takes care of their Chromebook at all times. Find a safe place at home, away from small children and pets, to store the Chromebook when not in use. The plastic cases were purchased to transport, store and protect the Chromebook. A child should not be allowed to eat or drink while using the Chromebook. If a liquid is spilled in the Chromebook, it will not work. ONLY the student should be using the Chromebook to complete his/her school assignments. Other children or adults should not be using the device. Fees will be charged to parents for repair of Chromebooks and equipment. Parents, thank you for making sure your child brings the case back to school on the appropriate days.
