Dear Lakewood High Families:

Thank you again for your patience and resilience as we continue to transition to hybrid instruction. We have monitored the data from DHEC and consulted with the South Carolina Department of Education. As a result, Phase Two of hybrid instruction, which includes second grade, third grade, sixth grade, and high school cohort one (last names A-L only), will begin Monday, October 26, 2020.

The next phases are contingent upon the data in terms of rate of positivity and other factors such as staffing availability within our schools. Phase Three is tentatively scheduled to begin Thursday, November 5, 2020, and includes fourth grade, fifth grade, seventh grade, and high school cohort two (last names M-Z only). Phase Four is tentatively scheduled to begin Thursday, November 12, 2020, and includes eighth grade and high school cohorts one and two.

Please note, parents have the option for their children to remain virtual for the entire semester. We will do our best to honor our parents’ preferences and keep siblings together as we continue to maintain our students’ and staff’s safety at the forefront of every decision.

As a reminder, through the hybrid model Group A will receive face-to-face instruction on Mondays and Thursdays and synchronous instruction on Tuesdays and Fridays, which means they will participate live from home. Group B will receive face-to-face instruction on Tuesdays and Fridays and synchronous instruction on Mondays and Thursdays, which means they will participate live from home. Students will continue to learn asynchronously, which means independently through prerecorded lessons on Wednesdays in order for schools to provide professional development for staff and deep clean facilities.

As we reintroduce our students to school, it is most important that we remind our children of the CDC’s safety guidelines, specifically the importance of staying six feet apart, wearing masks, washing hands, and following school bus and classroom safety protocols. Also, students should not share supplies, masks, food, or water bottles. We will also continue to adhere to our practice of not permitting visitors beyond the school lobby.

I remain appreciative of the leadership demonstrated by our principals, teachers, and school staff. I am equally grateful for the patience and support shown by our parents. We are stronger together!

Sincerely,

Cedric McKnight

Principal

Students with last names A-L can report to school on Mondays and Thursdays for face-to-face instruction.

Students with last names M-Z can report to school on Tuesdays and Fridays for face-to-face instruction.

All students will receive asynchronous instruction every Wednesday

Which College Entrance Assessment Should I Take?

All 11th-grade students (third year of high school) are being offered the opportunity to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam at their high school during the regular school day at no cost, based on action by S.C. General Assembly. The State Department of Education (SCDE) will be paying for one assessment per student. All students must return this form with a parent/guardian signature indicating their choice. While taking a college entrance exam in 11th grade is optional this year, students who elect to take one must choose either the ACT or the SAT. The state of South Carolina will only pay for one of them. Please select ONE option from the choices below by placing a checkmark beside the choice, sign, and date below and return this form to Mrs. Christina Dennis, School Counseling Secretary by November 18, 2020.  You may print, scan, and email the form as well to christina.dennis@sumterschools.net.

November 23, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

All students enrolled in English 2, Algebra 1, Biology 1, & U. S. History and the Constitution, as well as a few students, enrolled in English 1 in South Carolina will take a standardized test at the end of each course. The End of Course Examination Program (EOCEP) is a statewide assessment program of end of course tests for specific courses in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The EOCEP encourages instruction in the specific academic standards for the courses, increases student achievement, and documents the level of students’ mastery of the academic standards. Below is the schedule for the 2020-2021 Fall/Winter EOCEP:
The best preparation for testing is the rigorous instruction that your child has received throughout the year in his/her classroom. We are also preparing our students for state testing by helping them to develop test taking strategies and by familiarizing them with the format of the tests – two areas that can prevent students from demonstrating what they already know.

Thursday, January 21 A Day (A-L) US History
Friday, January 22 B Day (M-Z) US History
Monday, January 25 B Day (M-Z) English 2 Writing
Tuesday, January 26 A Day (A-L) English 2 Writing
Thursday, January 28 A Day (A-L) English 2 Reading
Friday, January 29 B Day (M-Z) English 2 Reading
Monday, February 1 A Day (A-L) Algebra 1-Semester Long Classes Only
Tuesday, February 2 B Day (M-Z) Algebra 1-Semester Long Classes Only
Thursday, February 4 A Day (A-L) Biology 1
Friday, February 5 B Day (M-Z) Biology 1


Please speak to your child about the test experience. It is important that students approach the test with seriousness and confidence. We count on your support in the following ways:

  • Students must be present and on time.
  • Students must NOT bring into the testing location any electronic devices. 
  • Students that have Chrome Books should bring them fully charged each day for testing.
  • Medical appointments and other out-of-school functions should not be scheduled during testing hours. If your child arrives at school after testing has begun, he/she will be escorted to an assigned area in order not to disrupt the testing environment for the other students. He/she will then take the missed test during make-up testing times or during the next scheduled class.
  • Please help alleviate any anxieties your child may have about the testing and encourage him/her to take the test seriously and to put forth their best effort.
  • Please ensure that your child eats a wholesome, nutritious breakfast each day. 
  • Please ensure that your child is well-rested and ready to do his/her best work. 

 

If you have any questions about testing, please speak with your child’s teacher or the School Test Coordinator (STC) at (803) 506-2700. 

Sincerely,

Ms. Heather Farthing,

Assistant Principal/School Test Coordinator

Students and staff in South Carolina public schools must wear a face covering upon entering a school building, moving through hallways, during carpool/bus drop off or pick up, on the bus, in the classrooms, and when social distancing is not possible or optimal.

Student face coverings may only be removed upon teacher or administrator direction while in the classroom or during special activities outside the classroom.

CDC does not recommend the use of gaiter face coverings (without filters). Evaluation of these face covers is ongoing, and effectiveness is unknown at this time.

Face shields can be worn in addition to wearing a mask, but not alone according to CDC.

Teachers, teacher assistants, special services, resources, etc. are encouraged to wear a face shield or goggles with a mask during close contact with a student to prevent the risk of respiratory droplets.

Masks with clear inserts may also be worn.

School nurses and health room assistants should wear surgical masks when working in the health room. Surgical masks are most effective in high risk areas.

Face coverings should not be worn if they are wet. A wet cloth face covering may make it difficult to breathe.

Students Who Should NOT Be Required to Wear a Face Covering:
Those who have trouble breathing
Those unable to remove the covering without assistance
Those with special healthcare or educational needs as determined by an Individualized Education Program (IEP), 504 Accommodations Plan, an individual
student healthcare plan, or a medical doctor.
Appropriate and Consistent Use of Masks May be Challenging for:
Younger students (pre-kindergarten-2nd grade)

Students, teachers, and staff with severe asthma or other breathing difficulties

Students, teachers, and staff with special educational or healthcare needs

Staff members, including bus drivers, who have trouble breathing and/or those with special healthcare needs as noted by a medical doctor should NOT be required to wear face coverings.

Students will receive two reusable face masks when they return to school. All face masks must adhere to the Sumter School District Dress Code. No inappropriate
symbols, pictures, language, or messages can be displayed.

Wearing Masks Correctly
Wash your hands before putting on your mask.

Put your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.

Masks should fit snugly against the sides of your face.

Make sure you can breathe easily.

CDC does not recommend the use of masks with an exhalation valve or vent.

Do not put the mask around your neck or up on your forehead.

Do not wear your mask under your nose.
Removing Masks Correctly
Wash your hands before touching your face or mask.

Handle your mask by touching the ear loops or ties.

DO NOT touch the outside of your mask.

Fold the outside/front of your mask inward.

Wear a clean reusable mask daily. Disposable masks are a one-time use and must be disposed of in the trash can.

Masks that become soiled must be removed and properly disposed of. A new clean mask must be reapplied.

Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing your mask. Wash your hands immediately for 15-20 seconds with soap and water or a 60% alcohol based sanitizer solution.

The Acceptable Use Form is required to continue using your district issued chromebook.
Each year it is imperative that we update all parent, guardian and emergency contact information. In cases of emergencies or any other need of your student, we must first contact the parents on file before attempting to make secondary emergency contacts. We hope to update the list of individuals that we may speak to regarding your student. Please take a few moments to update your contact information using this form.

We still have copies of the 2019-2020 yearbook available for purchase. They are $60.00. Please email Michele.Collins@sumterschools.net for additional information.
