  • Level I & Level II Volunteers

    Posted by Jaclyn Skene at 9/14/2016

    We have had some questions regarding what the difference is between Level I and Level II volunteers and what the district requires us to do.

    A Level 1 volunteer can come in to assist with “on-site” school functions and events only while under the direct supervision of a district employee. This process is pretty simple….there is a school form that must be completed by you and returned to us.

    A Level 2 volunteer can assist, chaperone, tutor, and mentor students (“on-site andoff-site”) and do not have to be under the direct supervision of a district employee, and if you plan on chaperoning a field trip you must be a Level 2 volunteer. There is an online form on the Kershaw County School District's website (click on the "apply to volunteer" link) that you must complete, along with a payment of $16.95 that is good for 2 years.

    If you have further questions, please contact our guidance counselor here at Midway at 803-432-6122.

    It’s hard to believe we’re into September already!

    Thank you all so much for your cooperation and help as we establish our procedures and most of all, our continued diligence to keep everyone safe and secure (especially our students). Your patience and courtesy is appreciated, and please remember that all parents/visitors must enter through the main office to get a visitor’s pass. One other thing - - if you change your child’s transportation arrangements we prefer a written note, and no changes will be authorized after 2:00pm on the requested day of the change.

    Morning car-riders:

    Please refrain from walking your child into school unless you have a scheduled meeting with a teacher or need to come into the main office/prekindergarten area.

    Never drop your child off from the main parking lot or grassy area near thebus loop.

    Please drop car-riders off only in the outside lane of the car-rider line at the awning (passenger side only), and please do not pass on the inside lane after dropping your child off.

    Remember that at 7:40am your child is tardy, at which time you must park in the parking area to come into the office to sign in your child.

    Afternoon car-riders:

    Please remember that as you turn into the school if the outer lane is backed up to the new yellow sign and yellow stripe, immediately move into the inside lane and go around the inside loop. Please do not block the entry lane into the school. It is very dangerous to block traffic from the main road.

    Our students will be allowed to load only at the car-rider awning and from the passenger side of the vehicle.

    A few other reminders:

    1) No school on Monday - - enjoy the holiday weekend!

    2) Our book fair continues through all of next week and we would appreciate your support...we all know that the basic building block of all learning is knowing how to read.

    3) One of our biggest PTO fund-raisers (World’s Finest Chocolate) begins next week.

    4) Next Thursday (9/8) we will have parent orientation from 6pm-7pm – please come if you can.

    5) Next Friday (9/9) from 7am-8am we will host our Grandparents for our “Goodies with Grandparents” – we hope you can make it.

    Dr. King
