  • Taps Across America
    Because Covid19 had canceled most Memorial Day celebrations this year, CBS News " On The Road" correspondent Steve Hartman and retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva teamed up and asked veterans, musicians, teachers, and students of all abilities and ages to sound Taps from their front lawns, porches, and driveways at 3 p.m. local time on Monday, May 25. Crayton's very own James Smyth can be seen in the linked video playing Taps with a group of Columbia musicians at the state house this past Monday.

If you have not completed your Elearning assignments you may continue to work on those assignments until June 1st; you will turn in your computer on June 2nd.

    The week of May 26th we will be taking up computers, textbooks, library books, instruments, and all other district owned materials.

The line will start on the service road behind the school, please stay in your car and you will be directed to each station. To enter the line turn between the school and our neighboring apartment building. Please do not enter either parking lot as traffic will be reversed.

    Click the link below for more information about the updated plan for WiFi Hotspots starting Thursday, March 26.

    WiFi Hotspots


    Comments (-1)

    While schools are closed, Richland One is providing “grab-and-go” breakfasts and lunches for students on weekdays at designated locations. Starting March 30, families will receive a week’s worth of meals on Mondays.

    “The change will reduce the number of trips families have to make to the pick-up locations for meals. The meals will be picked up once a week for the entire week,” said Richland One Nutrition Services Director Tracy Dixon. 

    Along with offering curbside meal pick-ups, the district also has been making bus deliveries to a limited number of sites. With the new meal distribution process, bus deliveries will end after Friday, March 27, Dixon said. Richland One is working with community partners to provide home deliveries to parents who are unable to pick up meals for their children from one of the 10 sites.

    To help the Nutrition Services staff know how many meals to prepare, Richland One parents are asked to complete an online form. Parents can access the form directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R1Meals. Parents will receive a follow-up email after they complete the form.

    All children 18 and under are eligible to receive the free meals. Parents can drive to any of the locations, remain in their vehicles and staff will distribute the meals curbside. The pick-up hours will be 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Mondays. Children must be present to receive the meals.
