  • REPORT CARD DISTRIBUTION DATE REVISED - Just one of two instructional days lost to Hurricane Irma is being made up this first quarter, delaying the end of the first nine weeks by one day as well as the distribution of report cards. Accordingly the first nine weeks will fall on October 27 (instead of October 26) and report cards will be distributed November 1 (not October 31 as previously planned).

  • WEATHER MAKE-UP DAYS: OCTOBER 23 & JANUARY 3 - Monday, October 23, 2017, and Wednesday, January 3, 2018, have been approved as the make-up days for instructional time lost on September 11, 2017, and September 12, 2017, due to the remnants of Hurricane Irma passing through our area. The approved make-up days were already designated as the District's first two "weather" make-up days on the 2017-18 school year calendar.

    Section 59-1-425(B) of the 1976 Code, as amended by Act 260 of 2006, reads: “(B) Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, all school days missed because of snow, extreme weather conditions, or other disruptions requiring schools to close must be made up. All school districts shall designate annually at least three days within their school calendars to be used as make-up days in the event of these occurrences.

    Parent-Teacher Conference Day was previously scheduled for Monday, October 23. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held later in the afternoon/early evening on both Monday, October 23 and Thursday, October 26. Elementary Schools will hold Parent-Teacher Conferences from 3-6 p.m, Middle Schools from 3:30-6:30 p.m., and High Schools from 3:45-6:45 p.m. Schools will communicate Parent-Teacher Conference options directly with their parents.

  • ATHLETIC EVENT SECURITY PROCEDURES REMINDER

    •          Each middle and high school will have uniformed law enforcement on site to assist with security at all major sporting events, including enhanced security before, during, and after the event. Law enforcement and/or school staff will regularly monitor hallways, common areas, parking lots and outdoor areas. Law enforcement will take an overt and active role in securing the building exterior and parking areas as patrons and students exit the venue.

    •          School staff will conduct a visual search of all bags and jackets/coats prior to entry. These screening protocols will increase the amount of time needed to enter major school sporting events, and students and families are asked to leave bags, backpacks and additional items at home, if possible. Per South Carolina Code 16-23-420, concealed weapons permits ARE NOT honored on school campuses.

    •          Metal Detectors will be available, visible and used by school staff prior to entry, as deemed necessary.

    Thank you so much for your cooperation and your continued support of Aiken County Public Schools and all Aiken County student-athletes.
