Alice Drive Elementary School, the first elementary school in Sumter School District to become STEM accredited through Cognia, strives to be the best that we can “Bee”! Friday, August 28 is the first day of virtual learning for students in grades K-5, and prekindergarten will begin Friday, September 4.

Student and parent orientation will be held Monday, August 24 through Friday, August 28 at designated times.  Your child’s teacher will reach out to you for your scheduled time.  In order to maintain safe conditions in our building, we will not have more than two classes scheduled at a time.  We ask that everyone wear a mask and practice social distancing while attending.  Our teachers will share information on Google Classroom, their parent communication app, and virtual expectations.  In addition, we will distribute Chromebooks and textbooks during this time.

Even though we will begin school virtually, we have designated school hours for each day.  Our school hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 2:15 p.m.  We encourage you to set up a place in your home for your child to complete his/her work and attend live class sessions.   Our ADE New Parent University will be posted on our website on Monday, August 24 and will provide beneficial information for our new parents at ADE.  Please go to to view the PowerPoint.

Log on to the school or district website for breakfast and lunch distribution information during virtual learning. When in-person instruction resumes, breakfast is from 6:50 a.m. until 7:20 a.m. In order to participate, students must arrive before 7:20 a.m. Breakfast and lunch meals are free for all students.
