ENROLL YOUR STUDENT(S) FOR 2020-21 ONLINE
Aiken County Public Schools is once again offering online rolling student registration.
Parents/guardians have the opportunity to enroll their students online, saving considerable time during school registration/verification days. As part of online registration, you may submit required information (including bus transportation), pay registration fees, submit residency verification documents, and apply for Free/Reduced lunches if applicable.
Parents of bus riders should complete the online form to provide proper notification to the Department of Transportation.
We have created this information sheet to try to make the packet distribution as easy as possible while keeping everyone separated and safe. We do not want parents to get out of their cars or to come into the building.
As a part of this 3rd packet distribution, our teachers have packed up your student’s personal belongings from the classroom. Animal ambassador and spring pictures will be sent home at this time.
A special “Thank You” goes out to Publix and Kroger for providing paper sacks to help us with this distribution. The next time you go shopping please, tell them thank you!
If your children are finished reading their library books, we will be collecting those as well on May 1st. However, you can bring those at the final packet return as well.
We are not taking up textbooks as your students may need them for their learning in the coming weeks.
Yearbooks have not arrived and will be distributed at the final packet return.
Date & Time:
Friday, May 1, 2020 **You must come on this day**
10:00-7:00 – All students
Please know that peak times may be a little slower so we ask for your patience as we work through the line.
· Packet distribution will take place in our bus loop beside our cafeteria.
· We ask that you drive through the front carline area in order for us to keep cars off Georgia Ave during peak times and to allow a safer entrance and exit.
What to expect when you get here:
1. You will stay in your car.
