  • YOUTH HOMELESS AWARENESS -  November is Youth Homeless Awareness Month. Nationwide, 4.2 million youth experience homelessness annually. Here in Aiken County, 120 students have been identified as homeless so far this year. Homeless youth are those who are without a regular nighttime residence. Families can experience homelessness from a house fire, economic challanges such as a loss of income, eviction or foreclosure, or a change in the family dynamic. 

    We are thankful for our Student Service Workers who support our homeless students and families! Please consider helping our homeless youth doing the following:

    • Be understanding. There are a number of reasons for homelessness.
    • Learn about services available through the McKinney Vento Homeless Act. 
    • Provide donations. The Aiken County Public School District will be collecting baby wipes and hygiene products throughout the month of November, and can be dropped off at 1000 Brookhaven Drive in Aiken.

    Please contact Sherida Stroman, Lead Student Service Worker/McKinney Liaison, at (803) 335-7051 or for more information.

Our Flags Today

  • Our flags fly at half-staff upon the death of principal figures as a mark of respect for their memory as ordered by the President and/or Governor. Click here for more information on our flag status today. In many instances, students are responsible for participating in or conducting flag-related exercises. While a great responsibility and honor for our students, we believe that it also helps build a sense of patriotism and civic pride.
