Shelby County Public Schools checks enrollment at each school to determine capacity levels so the attendance waiver process can be reviewed. For the 2013-2014 school year, the only school where attendance waivers will be accepted is Heritage Elementary and only for grades Kindergarten, 1 and 2, according to Dr. Dave Weedman, Director of Pupil Personnel.
Letters have been sent to those families whose children have been included in waivers during the current school year. Requests for renewals are due June 30 to Central Office (1155 West Main Street) for confirmation the waiver can continue. Weedman said the decision is based on the student’s academic, attendance and behavior records.
Due to possible rain this afternoon, the Simpsonville Elementary Field Day schedule has been adjusted. For parents coming for lunch the new lunch time is:
Lunch Break 11:50-12:30
Please return forms to Simpsonville Elementary by May 17.
Inspirational Speaker, Jim Jones, visited Simpsonville Elementary last week to inspire kids to do their best. Mr. Jones uses basketball to teach team work, responsibility and self motivation. He gave students at Simpsonville a boost before K-PREP testing, which begins and continues throughout this week. Mr. Jones encouraged the kids and made the students believe they could achieve their goals.
