    Governor Henry McMaster and State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman have announced that schools statewide will remain closed for the rest of the school year.



    “We agree that not reopening schools at this time is the most prudent decision in protecting the health and safety of students and staff,” said Richland One Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon. “Our teachers and staff are able to continue to offer instruction and other supports as we take this time to prepare for the new normal of social distancing and other measures that may need to be implemented. Schools are, by nature, close-knit environments. Having time to assess conditions is crucial.”


    Richland One students will continue e-Learning activities for the remainder of the year. The district’s IT Support Team will continue to provide e-Learning technical assistance to students, parents and staff, and buses will continue to serve as Wi-Fi hotspots at designated sites. Weekly meal pick-ups and deliveries for students also will continue.


    The FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) on the district’s website (www.richlandone.org) will be updated with information on fourth quarter grading and other matters regarding the end of the school year. District administrators are considering various options for high school graduation ceremonies.

    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 or via the district’s website (www.richlandone.org). 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.


    Meal Pick-up Sites Starting March 30 (MONDAYS ONLY – 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)

  • A Message from the Principal

     Greetings Stakeholders:

    St. Andrews Middle Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! This marks my 20th year in education. I joined the Richland One family in 2000 as a science teacher at St. Andrews Middle School. My entire career has been spent serving students at the middle level. The middle years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning.

    We are excited about the upcoming school year. We are planning during the summer months to ensure that our students receive the best experience possible while they continue on their journey. We will continue to provide an environment that promotes excellence in academics as well as building character through our mentoring groups like Project M.O.V.E., Crowned SAINTS, and GEMS. We will maintain an environment that’s safe and nurturing, and we will set high expectations for learning that will inspire our students to be life-long learners that will thrive in the twenty-first century.

    I look forward to embarking on this new journey as principal of this fine middle school and helping our students discover their passions while they work to reach their academic goals.

    The vision of St. Andrews Middle School states:

    St. Andrews Middle School, in collaboration with an engaged community, is committed to ensuring that each learner achieves his/her potential in a safe, caring, academically challenging and diverse learning environment that will develop productive citizens for a changing world. Parents and community members we need your support in order to make this happen. Our Motto states: At St. Andrews Middle School, Saints S.O.A.R.

    Surpass Expectations

    Optimize Learning Opportunities

    Achieve Success

    Respect Everyone

    It is my honor to serve as principal of St. Andrews Middle School. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me, and know that my door is always open.
