Please join us in congratulating Joshua Martin (Right) and Cannon Turner (Left) for receiving perfect scores on their SC Ready Math scores for Spring 2021. They were recognized at the school board meeting this past Tuesday night. In addition, we congratulate Reid Hinson who also made perfect score in Math, but is now a sixth grader at LEMS. Way to go, Counts!
Only one word to describe our Grandparents' Parade...SPECIAL! On Sept. 15, we celebrated our Grandparents during a parade in honor of Grandparents' Day. What an amazing turnout and special time we had! From the decorations, to the horns blowing, to the signs and posters, FUN was had by all. Thank you, Grandparents, for all that you do! Enjoy the video below. (Click the box in the right corner to make larger)
HEALTHY CHILDREN LEARN BETTER
A note from our school nurse…Nurse Deal
I am looking forward to a great school year, and I can’t wait to see your child/children learn and grow! If your student has a health condition or needs special care during the school day such as medication, treatments, or monitoring please inform me, I’m here to help!
A few reminders for our new and returning parents:
1. Never send medication to school with a child. Contact the school nurse to discuss medications needed during the school day.
2. Cough drops are a choking hazard for young children and should NOT be sent to school.
3. Everyone should bring a refillable water bottle DAILY to hydrate, soothe throats and mild coughs due to allergies. The water fountains remain closed off.
Below is the link to all health forms for Kershaw County School District.
It’s also important for school personnel to have current, working phone numbers for parents/guardians on file. In the event your child becomes ill or injured while in school, we need to contact you without delays. Please keep us informed of current numbers.
Lastly, DHEC provides a yearly school exclusion list to assist parents know when their child should stay home for certain illnesses and conditions, and when it is ok to return to school. Below is the link to this important parent information. Please print a copy and refer to it during the year for guidance on when to keep your child home due to illness, when they may return to school, and documents needed upon return. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding school health services.
Additional COVID-19 information may be found at the DHEC website:
Best of health,
Annah J. Deal, BSN, RN, LES School Nurse
