    If early dismissal becomes necessary...

    Every minute is precious with regards to your child's education and is especially important this year. If the need to dismiss your child becomes absolutely necessary, you may do so by coming to the Main Office before 1:30 p.m. After 1:30, we will be unable to dismiss your child and you will need to get in the car line. A mask is necessary for entry to the Main Office.

    Attendance - Every time your child is absent, the attendance office needs to be notified in writing (medical excuse or parent note)

    Click here to email a medical excuse

    While emailing a teacher about your child's absence is greatly appreciated, it is not considered an excuse.

    Please be aware that a student is only allowed 10 parent notes per school year. Any other absences will require a medical excuse.

    If you have any questions regarding attendance, please email aharrison@lexington1.net or call Mrs. Harrison at 803-821-3304.

    School arrival... we encourage each student to be in class by 7:30 each morning. Our morning news show (with many important announcements) begins at 7:35am.

    Tardy  - walk your child into the office if they arrive at 7:40 or later

    If your child is late due to a medical appointment, please bring a school excuse from the medical office where they were seen.
