Graniteville Gator Families!
Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year!
On behalf of the faculty and staff at Graniteville Elementary, I want to assure you that we understand that this school year will be unlike any school year in history. We also understand that our parents and guardians will have many questions about what Graniteville Elementary will be doing to ensure that our students will have a healthy learning environment.
My goal with this handbook is to address as many of your questions and concerns about what procedures we will follow at Graniteville as we navigate these new times together.
Please remember that though we have established these baseline procedures, these may change with very short notice depending on what is communicated from district, state and federal guidelines.
Thank you in advance for your patience and your trust as we navigate this school year together.
DISTRICT REMINDER REGARDING DO-NOT-PHOTO/VIDEO PARENT REQUESTS
Aiken County Public School District procedures regarding do-not-photo/video requests state that each new school year during the school registration process, parents who wish to “opt out” their children from participation in photo or video opportunities at school must submit that request in writing to the ACPSD Communications Department.
The letter should be addressed to Director of Communications Mike Rosier at 1000 Brookhaven Drive, Aiken SC, 29803. It should state which student or students they wish the request to include, as well as their home school location or locations.
PLEASE NOTE: If no letter is on file, students are automatically opted in for photo, video, and media opportunities in our schools as they arise.
We welcome parents who wish to opt their children out of all photos and videos to submit a letter to us at any point prior to the end of October.
All students, whether participating in the hybrid model of in-person instruction or the full-time virtual model of instruction through AIKEN iNNOVATE. have the option for meals during the 2020-21 school year.
