Principal's Message

May 7, 2020

Dear Parents:

            Tomorrow, your child’s Progress Reports will be available online via PowerSchool. Student grades will be partially based on the new District revised grading policy set forth on April 22nd due to C19 and the online schooling format. The criteria set forth by Superintendent, Dr. Rodriguez, is to be compassionate and flexible during this unprecedented time.  Emphasis needs to be placed on evaluating a student’s performance and the extent of their demonstration of mastery in relation to essential standards necessary to progress to the next grade level. The lowest grade a child will receive is a 70 for Quarter 4. If you have any questions regarding accessing PowerSchool, contact Sherol Pheiffer at: sherol.pheiffer@beaufort.k12.sc.us or your child’s teacher. Please celebrate your child’s hard work (and yours) during this difficult time!

            For you to know, our school is having a lot of construction items happening this summer including HVAC updates, painting the inside and outside of the building, audio system updates in red auditorium, sod placement on the playground areas and major security upgrades including installation of multiple cameras. This is great news for all of us but is the reason why the District is asking us to drop off our devices (tablets-for grades 3-5) earlier than many schools. Below are the dates that are slated for this process. Additional guidance is forthcoming about what those day(s) will look like by Heidi Neeson, Assistant Principal. We will be practicing social distancing and other recommended safe practices. This will also be a time that you will picking up your child’s belongings including artwork, dropping off any additional packets, library books or other items. We will NOT be accepting used uniforms at this time.

Teachers will be working on a variety of end of year activities and opportunities for supplemental summer learning. This information is forthcoming. At this time, we still do not have specific information regarding the Summer Reading Program. Fifth grade plan for promotion will be send to grade five parents.

Thank you very much for all of your support. During this week of Teacher Appreciation, I want to formally acknowledge all of the hard work and dedication exhibited on a daily basis by our staff. They truly have been incredible to work with. I also want to thank all the teachers at home for making this experience as meaningful for our students as much as possible.
