Please notify the school office immediately if there is a change of address or phone number. It is important that we have up-to-date information on your child in case of an emergency.
The school telephone line stays busy much of the time on a normal school day. We ask that every effort be made to make arrangements before school concerning transportation, after school plans, etc. This will eliminate the need for telephone messages to students and/or students needing to call home. If students are going home with another student, both students should bring a note to the teacher indicating permission. As much as possible arrangements should be made in advance.
MESSAGES – STUDENTS
Students are called at 1:30PM for messages. The office cannot guarantee that your child will be able to receive any messages called in after 2PM. Student messages should not be left on anyone’s voice mail.
MESSAGES – TEACHERS
All calls to teachers are routed to their voice mail. Teachers will check their messages as their schedule permits. Please remember teachers may not check their messages until the school day has ended. Any emergency calls will be referred to the administrators. You can access a teacher’s voice mail by calling the school number 654-2341 and selecting option number 2 and entering the first 3 letters of their last name.
In case of a nuclear emergency, school officials will be contacted by county emergency preparedness officials to proceed with the emergency plan. If an evacuation were ordered, all children attending school inside the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone will be moved to the pick-up point for their school. Parents should pick up students at the pick-up points only. Do not go
to the schools. This will help avoid delays. Adults would care for the children until parents arrive at the pick-up point. It is important for parents to know in what zones their children’s schools are located. Local schools are listed below:
School Zone Pick Up Point
Clemson C-2: West End Elementary
Edwards Middle C-2: Gettys Middle School
Daniel High C-2: Easley Sr. High
(Children not picked up at their school pick-up point within 5 hours will be moved to a temporary shelter at Easley Senior High School.)
In the event your children are ever left home alone, they should know what to do in the event of a nuclear emergency. The following is a list of shelters by zone:
