  • A Message from the Principal

     Greetings Pendergrass-Fairwold Family,Redenberg

    First, we would like to thank each of you for your patience and support during this process as it is a learning experience for all of us. Although there have been a few bumps in the road, we have collectively been able to provide a safe, positive virtual learning environment for your child. As we enter phase two, we look forward to continuing to experience successes for all of our students. We have devised a plan that we believe will work well with providing our students a face-to-face learning environment that meets each student’s academic and social needs without compromising safety. Below please find a few changes in our expectations during this new phase. Thanks again for partnering with us to ensure your child has a great 2020-2021 school year. We are so excited to begin working with our students in-person!

    Arrival/Departure

    1. Bus riders will begin arriving at 7:00 a.m. Staff will take each student’s temperature and escort him/her to the classroom. Any student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be escorted directly to our designated space and kept separated from others until a parent/guardian arrives.
    2. Car riders will begin arriving at 7:30 a.m. Please bring your child to the door in the back parking lot near the cafeteria. Call the school at (803) 735-3435 upon arrival and a staff member will come to your car to retrieve your child. His/her temperature will be taken at that time. If your child’s temperature is above 100 degrees, the school nurse will contact you with next steps.
    3. Your child is tardy after 8:00 a.m. If you arrive after this time, please bring your child to the front office. A staff member will escort him/her to the classroom.
    4. For safety purposes, we are limiting visitors. We ask that if you need to meet with your child’s teacher, please schedule a meeting.
    5. Dismissal is at 2:30 for all students. Car riders will be dismissed from the cafeteria. Please call the school upon arrival and a staff member will escort your child to your car.

    Safety

    2. Staff members will regularly utilize personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks, shields, gloves, gowns, etc. when working with your child. Students will not share learning materials at this time. To limit contact with others, students will remain in their classrooms for the entire day. Meals will be served in classrooms. Related areas teachers will come to your child’s class to provide instruction.
    3. If your child has a fever, you will be contacted immediately by the school nurse. We encourage parents to do self-checks before arriving to school.
    4. If your child has been exposed to COVID-19 or has a positive result, he or she cannot attend school. Please follow all of the CDC guidelines to quarantine. Our COVID-19 school contact is Alison Hair and she can be reached at (803) 691-1977 or at alison.hair@richlandone.orgShe will provide information about what information is needed in order for your child to return to school.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at faythe.redenburg@richlandone.org  or your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. We are ready for the challenges that lie ahead and together we believe we can achieve great things.

Nurse's Corner

  • Nurse

    There is a nurse at the school daily; however if the nurse is not available, trained staff will handle medication distribution and any emergency that arises. If your child becomes ill while at school, the student needs to go to the nurse’s office to be checked. We will call you to come pick him/her up if necessary. Please always be sure the school has current phone numbers for you and other emergency contact persons.

    Please let the school nurse know if your student has significant health history, life threatening allergies or special medical concerns.

Your child’s healthcare provider can help you determine if he/she needs further immunizations.
