From the Principal

My, how time is flying! We have begun the fourth nine weeks, and soon we will be basking in the sun, swimming, and reading lots of great books. While this is the time of year we all look forward to, it is also the time when students tend to lose focus due to sports, dance, and other extracurricular activities. Please take the time to speak with your child daily and find out what is going on in school. If he/she says, "Nothing," you can rest assured that that is not true! Teachers are still very busy at work making sure that your child has the necessary skills to be successful not only this year but in years to come. Also, continue encouraging your child to remain focused and make wise decisions. Poor choices can lead to the consequence of missing out on some really fun activities. It truly has been a great year this far, and we hope to end it the same way.

Tardy Reminder

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL PARENTS AND GUARDIANS- in the Lugoff Elementary Student Code of Conduct, the Tardy policy states:  “When students are tardy, they interrupt class and may miss important explanations of work to be completed.  Remember, just being five minutes late for 5 school days is equal to 25 minutes of missed instruction.” Students who are not in their classrooms at 7:50 AM are tardy and must go to the office for a tardy note that will require a parent signature.  Parents must sign their child in at the office and sign their child’s attendance card.  More than 5 unexcused tardies (and/or dismissals) will be referred to the principal.





EChalk Parent Account

Parents,
Many of you in the past have had an account where you could access eChalk updates.  There have been some changes this year.  Therefore, ALL parents must set up a new account. If you have not had one in the past, this is a great communication tool.  We encourage all our parents to have an account.
There is information and a video to help all parents get their class alerts set up at www.kershaw.k12.sc.us/district/instruction/echalk.
