A Note from Mrs. Goodwin
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I love the Christmas season and all of the excitement and joy it brings. As we prepare for Winter Break, please remember to encourage your children to read and practice math facts daily. We are sending home a calendar of activities to keep everyone’s brains engaged over break. I wish all of our families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Notes from Nurse Rhonda
As we come into Flu season, please monitor your child and if they are experiencing any type of illness, please keep them at home. Always practice good hand hygiene, remind them to cover coughs and sneezes, and how to properly wear their masks.
Per DHEC, Quarantine means:
*Your child will be required to stay home and not come into contact with other people during this time. They should not play with other children even if they feel well. Someone being quarantined should not attend school, daycare, or participate in any extracurricular activities. It is possible to spread the virus to others while being asymptomatic.
*Keep your child separate from other family members who may be at high risk, such as the elderly or those with health conditions.
While adapting to our new normal, a quarantine plan for your child may need to be in place. If your child is considered a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case or tests positive for COVID-19, quarantine times can range from 10 days to 24 days.
Please contact me if your child or household member tests positive for COVID-19 or if your child is quarantined by another facility or DHEC. 803-425-8960 or rhonda.shireyware@kcsdschools.
General guidance can be obtained through the DHEC Care Line 1-855-4-SCDHEC (1-855-472-3432).
Exact Path Trophy Challenge
This year reading and math medals will be given based on trophies earned in Exact Path. Students must reach their trophy goal for 6 out of 8 months in both math and reading. Teachers set individual goals for students each month. Encourage your child to participate, so they can receive their math and reading medals at the end of the year.
Face to Face Student Updates
In order to ensure student safety, shareable snacks will not be allowed at school this year. If you would like to purchase snacks or treats for your child’s class to share, you are welcome to utilize our Food Services snack time service. Please contact our cafeteria manager, Mrs. Elmore if you would like to order using this service at least 2 weeks in advance of the date the treats are needed. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may send a packed lunch to school or your child may eat the school lunch, but we are not allowing parents to drop off food from other locations during the school day.
Parents please make sure you send your child with all supplies and material needed for school daily. If you forget something, you will be able to drop it off in our foyer outside of the office. You will need to label the item with your child’s name and the teacher’s name. We will collect the item from the area and deliver it to the classroom.
Our water fountains can not be used at this time. Please send a labeled refillable water bottle with your child, so they can have access to water during the school day.
Please make sure your child comes to school with a mask on daily. Masks will be required in the building. Students will need to wear a face mask. Face shields are not allowed.
Remember, do not send your child to school if they are sick. We check temperatures at school daily. If your child or anyone in your household is positive with COVID-19, please notify our school nurse, Rhonda Shirey-Ware at email@example.com.
We appreciate your support while we make every effort to ensure student safety during the school day!
