  • Is your child getting the recommended hours of sleep?



    How many hours of sleep are enough? According to sleep expert Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, M.D. of Mayo Sleep Clinic, school-age children should have 10-11 of quality sleep each night.  This is uninterrupted sleep time. Depending on your child’s morning wake up schedule, a practical bed time for most elementary age school children is about 8 p.m. As always, a nutritious, a healthy diet, plenty of fluids for hydration, frequent hand washing to help prevent illness and recommended sleep hours will help your child be their very best for a great school day!

  • Reminders and Updates

    Posted by Melissa Lloyd at 11/10/2015


         Thank you for an outstanding first nine weeks!  It was great seeing so many of you at our awards programs as we celebrated the many successes of our young people.  Remember, every child can receive an award for reaching his/her Accelerated Reader (AR) goal.  If your child did not receive this award, let's work extra hard this nine weeks to make it happen!  

         I would also like to remind each of you that the Kershaw County School Board voted at its last meeting to extend the second nine weeks.  What this means for you is that January 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th are all days when students attend school.  Friday, January 15th is now a teacher workday, so students will not attend school.  In addition, the second nine week ends on January 14th, and the third nine weeks now begins on January 19th.  At this time, report cards are scheduled to still come home on January 20th.  Please mark all of these very important changes on your calendar.

         As always, I thank you for all that you do to help make LES a great place to be!

  • Welcome Back to School

    Posted by Melissa Lloyd at 8/17/2015
    Dear LES Families,

    Dr. Melissa Lloyd

    The time is finally here! It is the beginning of the 2015 – 2016 school year!  I hope that you each had a spectacular summer spending time doing those things that brought smiles to your faces.  Whether it was relaxing by the pool, reading a good book, taking long, leisurely naps, or entertaining family and friends, hopefully you have re-energized your minds and bodies and are now ready to return to the business of school.  We have been working extremely hard getting ready for your learners, and we are excited about the prospect of what a new school year brings.  To get us off on the right foot, there are a few things that I need to let you know.
    1. As a reminder, our school day is from 7:40 – 2:40, and we begin early drop off in the car rider circle at 7:10.  Even though you may see faculty and staff before 7:10, please do not drop your child off prior to this time as that is when someone is on duty to receive and monitor children.

    2. The tardy bell rings at 7:50 and is also the time when those on duty return to their classrooms to prepare for classes that will be coming to them.  If the bell has rung, please bring your children to the front office and sign them in.

    3. The last thing I would like to remind everyone about is the fact that the front parking lot is not a drop off point unless you are escorting students into the building to conduct business.  If this is the case, please locate a free parking space (do not park in the middle of the parking lot) and proceed into the building.  The same is true concerning walkers.  Walkers are to cross with the crossing guard on Hwy. 34 and may not be dropped off or picked up from the parking lot.  These things may seem insignificant,  but they pose safety issues when there is extra, unnecessary traffic in the parking lot.

    In advance, I thank you for all that you will do to make this a memorable, successful school year.  Welcome back, Counts!
