“In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth” -Genesis 1:1

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This month’s theme is School Bells Ring. Letters this month are; A-B-C, Numbers; 1 & 2. Our Shape is square, and our Color is red. Our Bible lesson will teach that God created the earth, the sky and outer space. God loves us so much that He created this beautiful world for us to live in.

We are excited to bring back our Creative Curriculum starting September 1st.

After School & Camp News

Back to School is right around the corner! Elementary schools start back August 16th, if your child is enrolled in the after school program, please notify which school your child will be attending; buses fill up fast! Parents, please bear with the first week of the buses running. They will be slightly slower the first 2 weeks. There is no need to call; we will always call you if your child does not get off their assigned bus. Parents must notify our office when your child has been sent home sick from the elementary school.

Attention Campers: Only a few more weeks of Summer fun! Please make sure to follow your camp calendar and arrive prior to 9am on field trip days.

Director’s Notes

  • With back to school in just a month, please let the office know of any changes in your child’s file. All weekly payments are due on Monday and considered late on Tuesday at drop-off. Monthly accounts are due on the 1st, late fees apply thereafter. We recommend Tuition Express to avoid any late fees, please see the office with any questions.

    Our 2021-2022 Parent Handbooks will be available by September 1st and ready for pick up at the front office. Additionally, your annual re-registration fee of $55.00 is due September 1st. If your child was registered after March 1, 2021, you will not have to pay a registration fee at this time. If you attended Summer Camp, after school registration is paid for the 2021-2022 school year, it will expire at summer registration for 2022 Summer Camp.

    With COVID cases strengthening in Beaufort County, we ask that children stay home if they are sick. If you think that your child has an illness that can be spread to others, please keep him or her home. Failing to do so puts other students and their teachers at risk. If someone in your household is in quarantine, please refrain from coming to school as well. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Lets all do our part to keep Lowcountry Day Schools a safe and healthy environment.

           Our COVID drop-off protocol is as follows:

    • We will continue to run the children to and from their classrooms (no parents past the front foyers).

Parent Reminders
