An announcement was made this afternoon by Governor McMaster and State Superintendent, Molly Spearman, that SC schools will be closed through April 30. Should this timeline need to be adjusted by ending sooner or by being extended, an announcement will be made at that time. ACSD was braced for the announcement of a school closing extension as a result of the daily SCDE and State Superintendent briefings provided to district superintendents. With other decisions being made in our state and those in states like NC, it seemed to be a matter of time. I do think it gives our students, especially our seniors, a window of hope that the school closure through April 30 will have helped to flatten the curve and the month of May will usher in the possibilities of returning to school, holding prom and graduation, etc. although there are still no guarantees. ACSD is busy preparing for the second wave of providing instructional packets and eLearning plans for students. We stand ready to provide the best services possible to our students at this time. We are currently awaiting guidance from the SCDE on decisions governing some instructional components and will share and implement these once received. Our focus is on what students have already been taught and what they need between now and the end of the year in order to be prepared for the next grade level or course content in a sequence or for graduation. - Dr. Julie Fowler, ACSD Superintendent

On behalf of Dr. Fowler and the ACSD Team: We would like to applaud our administrators, teachers, and staff for preparing and distributing educational resources for our students in response to the COVID-19 school closure. Because of your hard work, ACSD students now have access to several weeks’ worth of instructional materials to use at home. We appreciate the commitment of our school personnel to provide for their pupils and to make sure the educational process continues during this time of crisis. Our cafeteria staff worked diligently this week to prepare meals for students during the school closure. Bus drivers participated by distributing meals throughout the county. Our custodians have been cleaning and sanitizing our buildings in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy. Our district Instructional Technology and Maintenance Departments are working on projects and resolving issues as they arise. We appreciate all of your efforts to provide for our students – even with schools closed. The ACSD community rallied together to meet the needs of its students, and we are truly grateful. We remain committed to our mission of “Putting Students First.” Thank you to all! Please continue to support our students and one other during these stressful and uncertain times. Reach out to one of us if you have questions or need anything further. Finally, we want to remind everyone to heed the precautions set forth by our local, state, and government officials. Please practice social distancing and appropriate safety habits to help keep your family safe. #flattenthecurve

Westwood Elementary School is participating in One School One Book during the month of March. There was a “kick-off” on March 2nd where 5th grade students performed a skit about the book that the students would be reading. Each student, teacher, and staff member received the book, The Lemonade War. Then, all of the students got a cup of lemonade and lemon cookies from the lemonade stand. Parents are encouraged to read the assigned chapters each night with their child. The next day, a trivia question is asked and one winner from each grade is chosen. The winners receive a bag of Lemonhead candy, a yellow bracelet, and a token to the book vending machine. Each Friday, there will be special activities such as, “wear yellow day”, a poster contest, and guests from the community to read to each class. At the end of the month, there will be a winner per grade to receive a copy of the sequel, The Lemonade Crime.

We have monitored the weather since arriving this morning. We have been in constant contact with both Greenwood and Abbeville Emergency Management, law enforcement, neighboring districts, and principals. There was never a window of opportunity to put buses on the road where students and drivers were not at risk. The storms moved slower than forecasters anticipated, which spawned tornado warnings in different parts of the county at different times in the day. We decided to dismiss as soon as the line of severe weather, which entered our county before 11:00 this morning, and had passed through the entire county. We had our first tornado warning shortly after 11:00 AM and had five schools and the District Office under a tornado warning as late as 2:00 PM this afternoon.

Congrats to our Culinary Arts Career Center students! Out of 22 high school culinary programs from around South Carolina, Abbeville County Career Center ranked number 7 in management and 11 in culinary. The team consisted of students from Abbeville High, Dixie High and McCormick High. The management team was Maya Smith (AHS) and Caitlin Lee (DHS). This team developed a restaurant concept to the judges that included logo, floor plans, marketing tactics, return on investment, SWOT analysis, operations, and menu costing. The culinary team which consisted of Kaleah Johnson (AHS), Amber Foges (AHS), Brandy Vaughn (DHS), and Kaley Heath (MHS) competed in a high intense competition where they were to prepare a three course meal in one hours using no electrical appliances. This team was challenged to come up with their own recipes, display time management and sanitation skills along with recipe costing. This year’s team was led by first year culinary instructor Chef Erica McCier-Rayford.
