    Wow! I can't believe we are well into the second month of the second semester. I am excited to celebrate significant achievements and initiatives within our school community.


    First, I am thrilled to announce that results of the reading and math STAR assessments indicated that many students showed growth from fall to winter. Students engaged in goal-setting to take ownership of their success. They also participated in reading assessments in which they read stories to gauge their speed and accuracy of words read in addition to details they could comprehend within and beyond the text. I would be remissed if I did not share that performance in our special populations (e.g. special education and multilingual learners) are also increasing. We are excited about the progress our Eagles are making, and this would not be possible without them being accountable for their learning, the efforts of our amazing staff, and your partnership. Please contact your child(ren)'s teacher if you did not receive score reports for these assessments.


    Second, graded work folders will be coming home the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month to ensure clarity of what your child(ren) is learning and to make meaning of grades earned. Please contact your child's teacher should you have a question.


    Third, I understand many of your frustrations with the car rider line. As I often share with families, traffic is mild between 7:00-7:15a.m. With the influx of traffic that comes after 7:20a.m. it causes delays and increases the risk of your child(ren) being tardy. I encourage earlier arrival to help the car rider line flow efficiently during its operation. Also, both entrances to the school from the car rider loop close promptly at 7:30a.m. to allow staff to transition to their class for instruction. At this time, please monitor your child(ren) if they exit the car, and the entrance is closed so you can drive them to the front of building and enter with you to be signed in. Please note, the car rider entrance is blocked off at a certain time to ensure all cars are served before staff transition to their class. We ask that you do not move any barriers to assist in in no one being in line when doors close.


    Lastly, students are in the process of choosing their extra-curricular club in which they will participate on the last Friday of each month. This is a refinement to our current advocacy program. We have club offerings ranging from singing, acting, crocheting, and coding. There is something for everyone, and our staff are excited to facilitate these to keep the climate and culture among our student body strong.


    As always, we appreciate your support and partnership. Please contact me if there are questions, concerns, feedback, or ideas to help our Eagles continue soaring.

    Traversa Ride 360: School Bus Transportation APP

    Dear Richland One Parents,

    You can get notifications about your child’s bus route on your phone. Richland One Student Transportation Services offers Traversa Ride 360 mobile app.

    Traversa Ride 360 is a secure app provided by the South Carolina Department of Education. The free app will allow a parent or guardian to have instant access to their child’s school bus transportation information through a real-time GPS tracker. Through the app, parents will be sent an alert of the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of their child’s bus. The district can also send important and timely push notifications through the app, such as notifying parents of a late bus, the use of a substitute bus or a bus accident. Parents must stay logged in to the app to receive push notifications from Student Transportation Services in real time.

    Access the free app by searching for Traversa Ride 360 in the App Store (Apple iOS) or Google Play for Android. You will need to install the app and register in the app. When asked to find your school district, search for Richland County School District One.

    Click the following link to watch a video with instructions on how to install, register and use the apphttps://rotv.viebit.com/player.php?hash=zrX56bmt0MdyQGNY

    Please note that this service will only be available for state school buses/routes. Richland One district programs/buses (such as magnet choice programs, Heyward Career and Technology Center and ESOL programs) will not have this service available at this time. The bus numbers of the buses that are unavailable through the app are posted on the district’s website.

    If you have any questions, contact Student Transportation Services Director Rick Grisham at rick.grisham@richlandone.org or (803) 231-7002.
