Bates Middle School looks forward to working with our students through virtual learning beginning Friday, August 28.  Student schedules will be mailed to the address that we have on file.  If your address has changed, please notify the school by calling 803-775-0711.

Virtual orientation will be held the week of August 24-28, prior to the August 28 virtual learning start date and will focus on virtual expectations.

Any student who is new to Sumter School District and has not been issued a Chromebook should call the school at 803-775-0711 to schedule an appointment to pick up a Chromebook. Masks will be worn and social distancing guidelines will be followed at all times.

Prior to school resuming face-to-face, Bates Middle School will offer a face-to-face orientation, and parents will be notified by mail as to this date.
