RICHLAND ONE TO PROVIDE WEEK’S WORTH OF MEALS
FOR STUDENTS ON MONDAYS STARTING MARCH 30;
PARENTS ASKED TO COMPLETE ONLINE FORM
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.

Greetings Forest Heights Family!
My name is Dr. Winnie Johnson and I am an educator with 34+ years of experience. Originating from New Jersey, I moved to South Carolina two years ago from the metro Atlanta area where I served in Henry County Schools for 24 years in several capacities. After that, I served as Head of School for East Point Academy Charter School in West Columbia. My background includes speech/language pathology, school counseling, special education, human resource administration and school leadership as an assistant principal and as an elementary principal. Additionally, I have raised three amazing children who are now adults giving back to society in their own special ways!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Our Eagle Family is ready to take off and SOAR to another level this year! We have adopted a Growth Mindset where we believe that all of our students CAN grow and perform to their highest potential. We are preparing our students for college and careers! To that end, we are equipping ourselves as a Forest Heights Family to help our students get there. We invite you to join us in this journey!
I continue to maintain positive energy and commitment to success for each student at Forest Heights. I am committed to Excellence in Teaching and Continued Student Growth. This translates into ensuring that all our teachers and support staff are provided an array of strategies, resources and administrative support that will enable them to address the specific educational needs of all students at Forest Heights. This will include a strong focus on professional development for teachers, adult learning opportunities for our parents, a focus on pride and ownership for students in their own education, equity and access to the most engaging classroom opportunities for students, and my personal commitment that all administrative staff will approach our roles as instructional leaders with optimism and team spirit!
My passion includes embracing and loving the students that we serve because I know that it is impossible to teach them if you don’t build positive relationships with them. As the school leader, I am always focused on school improvement because an effective learning environment strives to continually assess the work and find ways to improve upon areas that require strengthening. Moreover, it is imperative that parents are involved in the education of their children. I look forward to the continued partnerships we have built this past year with all stakeholders both in the school and in the community. Through an active PTO and SIC, we will work together to enhance the learning of all students at Forest Heights. My philosophy has always been to make the school an environment where children love coming to learn, staff enjoy coming to work, and parents and community members are part of the learning process. Early on, I adopted the adage, “It takes a village!” You are part of our village and we welcome you to take part in this. I am confident that if our students come to school – everyday – ready to learn and they are fully aware that they CAN grow and succeed, we can get the job done! We pledge to do our part and we know that you will join forces with us and become a vital part of our learning community!
Through our collective Communication, Collaboration and Commitment, we will make this village work! We believe that:
“Eagles Fly High….No Matter What!”
