Parents and students are asked to come to the commons area upon arrival. Classroom assignments will be posted there.  Then, you will report directly to your child’s classroom.   

Thursday, August 3 is the first day of school for students in grades 1-5. Elementary schools in Sumter School District will stagger prekindergarten and kindergarten start dates for the 2023-2024 school year.  This will allow each classroom teacher to use August 3-9 to conduct the academic portions of the KRA and GOLD testing with a smaller group of students each day.  Your child’s teacher will contact you to schedule the appointment time and date for testing. Thursday, August 10 is the first day of school for all prekindergarten and kindergarten students. Additional information will be shared at Jump Start Camp/Orientation.
