  • SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH COMMUNITY INPUT MEETINGS - As part of their support to our School Board in their search for a new District Superintendent (following the retirement of Superintendent King Laurence at the end of this school year), The South Carolina School Boards Association is conducting community input meetings next Tuesday, December 5, and Wednesday, December 6. All are invited to attend these meetings, which are being held at 7:00 p.m. in locations across the county.

    On Tuesday, December 5, meetings will be held at North Augusta High School in the Media Center and at Silver Bluff High School in the Auditorium. Again, on Wednesday, December 6, the community may choose from two locations to share their input, including our District Office in the Board Room or at Wagener-Salley High School in the Auditorium.

    We look forward to the community’s insight into our school district’s next educational leader and hope to see many of you next Tuesday or Wednesday.

  • PROHIBITED METAL OBJECTS REMINDER - As middle and high school students return from Fall Break in mid-October, they will be prohibited from bringing to school stainless steel water bottles, metal eating utensils, and scissors. As we increase school safety measures and the frequency of Weapons Detection, these objects delay the screening process and will no longer be allowed. We do apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and appreciate your cooperation.

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.
