  • Alana As most of you know, I am expecting a baby girl in March, so this will probably be my last column for this school year.  


    I would like to thank everyone for the support and hospitality you have shown to me being a new member of the DME family. It has been such a wonderful transition because of all of you.


    As the weather warms, behaviors will be on the rise. Please remind your child of our PBIS school expectations. We strive to be safe, orderly, respectful, on task, and to take care of property. Thank you for all you do for our children! My door is always open.


    Mrs. Hall has been a wonderful asset to our school, and I know she will be glad to help you with any of your needs while I am gone on maternity leave.


    Have a fin-tastic spring! See you when I get back!


    Mrs. Alana Powers

    Good attendance is critical for student success. We, at Doby’s Mill Elementary School, are here to help your child be successful. When a student is absent, he or she misses vital instruction time.


    Parent Notes and Medical Notes

    We realize that there are days that your child may need to be absent due to illness. If your child is out sick, please make sure to send in either a medical excuse or a parent note on the day he or she returns. 

    Please be reminded that you are only allowed ten parent notes per year. If you exceed those ten parent notes, each absence after that will be marked unexcused unless you send in a medical note.


    Tardies and Early Dismissals

    When students are tardy or dismissed early, they interrupt class and may miss important explanations of assignments.

    This year, the State Department of Education is tracking actual minutes students are in school. If your child is tardy or is dismissed early, I am required to enter the minutes that he or she has missed. Please be mindful of that as you plan appointments during school hours.


    Updated Information

    Please keep me updated with any new information such as phone number changes or address changes during the school year. It is imperative that we have updated information at all times in case we need to reach you.

    As always, I am here to help. If you have questions you can reach me via email at or 803-438-4055, extension 8458.

  • Flu How can you help prevent the spread of the flu?  The Center for Disease Control recommends “Take 3 Actions:”

    1. Vaccinate- talk to you doctor about getting a flu vaccination

    2. Take everyday preventative actions. Avoid close contact with ill
    persons. Keep children home if they have a fever (100 degrees or
    higher), until they are fever free without the use of fever
    reducing medications like Tylenol or Motrin for 24 hours . Cover
    coughs and sneezes with a tissue or upper sleeve. Wash hands
    frequently with soap and water or alcohol hand rub. Clean and
    regularly disinfect high touch surfaces.

    3. If you are sick, seek medical advice and take antiviral medications if

    Per DHEC exclusion guidelines, if your child has had a fever of 100
    degrees or higher, they must be fever free for 24 hours without the
    use of fever reducing medications such as Tylenol or Motrin, in order
    to return to school.

    Please let the school know immediately if your child has been
    diagnosed with the flu. DHEC requires us to report cases to assist
    with tracking. Thanks for helping us keep our students and staff
