If you cannot make it to your child’s school during this time, please contact the school to arrange to drop off all completed work prior to this date. No student work will be accepted after 1 pm on Thursday, May 14. This will also be parents last opportunity to pick up any medications that are at the school. If your child’s medications are not picked up by 1 pm on Thursday, May 14, the school nurse will properly dispose of these medications. We recommend your child continue to read and explore their interests through projects or research over the summer. Everyone with the school district would like to thank you all for your continued support and cooperation during this time. We miss our students and families and look forward to when we can see you all again.

Fundraiser materials will also be given out. Packet 3 and any other packets not previously returned will be due on May 14. Packets turned in after May 14 will not be accepted. Students are asked to return all textbooks and library books on May 4, May 5, or May 14.

In an effort to assess internet capabilities within our district, we are asking that all parents complete the following survey by Tuesday, April 14. Internet is defined as ability to use a desktop, laptop, or tablet at home. For the purpose of this survey, access to internet solely through a smart phone is NOT considered internet access. Please complete a separate survey for each child who attends a school in Newberry County. Even if you previously completed a survey through your school, please take a moment to provide the information requested at https://bit.ly/SDNCInternetSurvey
As we continue to receive updated information about our schools, we want to keep all of our families informed. Yesterday, the Governor issued an extension to the school closure through April 30. Our schools and offices will remain closed per the Governor’s order. Our meal pickup and delivery will continue tomorrow. We are asking families to hold up a sign or fingers to indicate how many children need meals. If possible, we would prefer to place the meals in the trunk of the cars to reduce the chance of exposure. If the trunk is not an option, please roll down a window. No one will need to get out of the car for this service. We thank you all for your continued support and encourage all of you to frequently wash your hands and maintain appropriate social distancing.
Do you need your school counselor while you are out? Please call Dixon's Counselor Contact at 803-597-1399. Ms. Coffman is currently unavailable but will release hers by next week. Everyone can use Mrs. Dixon until then if needed. Directions: Student leaves their name and short message, and the Counselor will either call them back immediately, if able, or return their call soon after. The Counselor is able to also text them back to let them know the message is received it and they will call soon.Students are also able to text a message to that number. If they text, they need to identify themselves as we will not know otherwise. For emergencies late at night, call the hotline at 1-800-273-8255 (1/800/TALK)
