  • Richland One Parents Must Complete Annual Returning Student Enrollment Verification

    Parents/guardians of current Richland One students who will be returning to the district in August must complete the annual online Returning Student Enrollment Verification form for the 2020-2021 school year.

     Parents are encouraged to complete the form as soon as possible to ensure that they continue to receive vital district/school messages and alerts, which are especially important during inclement weather and other emergencies that lead to changes in the school schedule.

     The online form, which is accessible through each school’s Parent Portal, gives families a quick and easy way to update their address, phone numbers and emergency contacts. Providing updated contact information also will be helpful in preventing delays in scheduling their children’s classes for next year. Parents are also asked to upload a current proof of address. If parents/guardians cannot upload an electronic file, they should contact their child's school to make other arrangements.

    Parents/guardians without computers or Internet access can use their smartphones or contact their child’s school for assistance. Families who have questions about logging into the Parent Portal or don’t have a Parent Portal account should contact the school where their child is enrolled.


    Lunch    Richland One to Provide Children with Free Summer Meals

    Starting June 8, families will be able to pick up free summer meals for their children at eight Richland One school sites. The 2020 Summer Food Service Program will operate on Mondays only from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the following schools: South Kilbourne Elementary, Caughman Road Elementary, Southeast Middle, Lower Richland High, Carver-Lyon Elementary, Eau Claire High, St. Andrews Middle, and Hyatt Park Elementary schools.

    The federally-funded Summer Feeding Program, which offers seven days’ worth of nutritious breakfasts and lunches to any child at no cost to parents, is expected to operate through July 30. Organizations that provide summer camps, day care or other programs for children may be eligible to receive free meals for their participants. Limited home delivery services will be available during the summer.

     Although the online application has closed, families that have not previously signed up may still receive meals. To pick up meals, children must be present in the vehicles, for the first pick-up, unless they or the community organization have been previously verified for the program by the district. No further applications are necessary.

    For more information and updates, go to the district’s website www.richlandone.org, click on the Departments tab then click on the Nutrition Services link. Inquiries may be directed to Richland One Student Nutrition Services at (803) 231-6953, mailed to Richland One Nutrition Services, 201 Park Street, Columbia, SC 29201 or sent via email to sfsp@richlandone.org.
