The Library will be hosting their fall Scholastic Book Fair October 11-16 from 7:30 to 3:30. Parents may visit the Book Fair with their child during this time. The Fair accepts cash, checks made payable to LES, debit and credit. If you send money with your child, please do so in a ziplock bag marked Book Fair and remember that 8% sales tax will be added to each purchase.



As a point of information, we do NOT serve breakfast to students when we are on a two-hour delay. Please make sure your child eats breakfast at home whenever this occurs.



Red Ribbon Week will be observed October 23-27. The week promotes a drug-free environment. Students may participate by following the schedule below:


Monday - Wear Red Day

Tuesday - Hats off to being drug free - wear your favorite hat       

Wednesday - My future is bright – wear bright colors

Thursday - Put a sock on drugs day – wear crazy socks

Friday - Be on a drug free team - wear your favorite team shirt



October 27 was originally scheduled as a teacher work day. However, students will be required to attend school to make up the day missed during Hurricane Irma. Please make a note of it!! Attendance will be taken on this day.



Thank you for your cooperation concerning our transportation policies. We have had markedly fewer problems especially in the afternoons. Please continue to communicate in writing with your child’s teacher whenever there is a change. And please remember 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.


                       IMPORTANT TESTING DATES

Students in 2nd through 4th grade will be taking important tests the end of October and early November. Please make sure your child gets a good night’s rest the night before tests, arrives on time for school, has eaten a healthy breakfast at home or has time to do so at school, and that early dismissals are completely avoided. Please make note of the following test dates and how they may apply to your child.

Parents of bus riders, we kindly ask that you be patient with the buses as the drivers adjust their routes to make them more efficient.  You may have a different driver or bus arrive to pick up or drop off your child.  Those changes are being made by the bus office.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us and we will look into your question.  You can also call the bus office 843-752-2710.




Please be patient as our dismissal routine falls into place.  All Lower Elementary Montessori students are picked up on the back loop.  You will line up in the far right lane to access the back loop.  Primary Montessori, 4th grade and Mrs. Coote’s class will be picked up on the front loop.  You will line up in the left lane and form 2 lines for pick up.  Beginning Monday, all car riders MUST have school issued car tags to pick up students in the car rider line.  Parents that do not have cards will be asked to sign out their student in the office.  Parents will not be allowed to park in the parking lot and walk across to pick up their children in the afternoon to avoid the line.  The only people parking in the parking lot will be parents that do not have a car rider tag.
