Communication Tools

Communications Tools for Families

Students have a variety of ways to communicate with our school and their teachers.  Our schools have Websites at where schools share calendars and news.  All teachers have a Teacher Website (listed under the “Staff” link) where students can expect to find their Teachers’ Email Addresses.  Teachers use Canvas to share Homework and Documents (syllabus, expectations, etc.) and to allow students to submit classwork and homework digitally.  

Schools also have a Facebook page and some have Twitter accounts where they post school news and photos.  You can find their links at

All students have a Gmail Email Address (  Logging into this address also gives them access to Canvas, Classlinks, and to Google Drive account for creating Google Docs, Sheets and Slides for homework and assignments.

Parents can help students keep up with daily grades with Canvas and with semester grades with a ParentPortal account. Our school and the district use an automated calling system called BlackBoard Connect to call families with school information.  If you are not receiving these calls, please contact the school office to update your phone number.

The district also has a mobile app - look for the Kershaw County School District App in your smartphone store or see  School and district notifications are shared through the app, as well as ParentPortal accounts, lunch menus, phone notifications and additional information.
