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.
Monday, August 15 is the first day of school for Grades 1-5. Elementary schools in Sumter School District will stagger kindergarten start dates for the 2022-2023 school year. This will allow each classroom teacher to use August 15-19 to conduct the academic portions of the KRA testing with a smaller group of students each day. Your child’s kindergarten teacher will contact you to schedule the appointment time and date for testing. Monday, August 22 is the first day of school for all prekindergarten and kindergarten students. Additional information will be shared at Jump Start Camp/ Orientation.
Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures: All students should be picked up and dropped off in front of the school off Kingsbury Road. Parents who need to leave their car to enter the building are asked to park in the designated parking areas and not along the curb. The prekindergarten and kindergarten drop-off/pick-up location is for prekindergarten and kindergarten students only.
