School Plan for Inclement Weather: When Berkeley County Schools close or delay school for inclement weather, we will do the same. If there is a 2 hour delay on a Friday, we will close at 2:30 pm, instead of 2:00 pm. Please remember that our school calendar does not match the Berkeley County Schools calendar. We only follow them for inclement weather. If Berkeley County Schools are not in session and we experience bad weather, your child's teacher will text you if we have a delay or closing.
Jump Rope for Heart: Our students participated in Jump Rope for Heart today to raise money for the American Heart Association. If you did not turn in your child's envelope with donations, please do so tomorrow. On-line donations should have a donation report that needs to be included in the envelope.
