Senior News!

  1. We have ordered and received date change announcement inserts for your graduation invitations.  You will need to send these out with your invitations to indicate that graduation exercises will be held on Tuesday, June 15 @ 9:00 a.m.  on  the football field.   These are NOT tickets.  Seniors should stop by the guidance office and pick up one for each invitation you wish to send to family and friends.
  2. Make sure you check your email daily.  This is the best way for us to inform both face and virtual students.
  3. Check on your grades, attendance, fees, exam schedule, and graduation practice schedule.  There are important deadlines coming up.
  4. PROM is coming fast.  Make sure you have paid your fee, selected a date, have outside dates approved, and covered all of the requirements.
  5. See guidance to make sure you have completed the application process for further education.  Summer staff schedules at colleges may make it difficult to contact the appropriate person.  If you need to send transcripts or other information, try to get the name of a person. Transcripts get misplaced due to office vacations.  From us, we suggest you ask for a transcript to be sent and for a sealed transcript that you can send/deliver if we are not in the office.  All transcripts sent by us will be documented on the date it was sent out showing the school.
  6. You should have your required cap and gown by now.  If you have any issues, contact us.  Do not wait until the last minute.
  7. You cannot march unless you have successfully completed all the REQUIRED courses for a SC High School Diploma and paid all Dillon Four fees.
  8. Graduation practices are required:  June 8, 9, 10 @ 9:00 weather permitting.  We will not need to practice all three days but they are scheduled to avoid bad weather.
  9. Senior Exams:  June 9, 10
  10. If you are taking credit recovery for this school year, you must successfully complete the program/course by May 28, 2021.  This is an absolute deadline.  Contact Mrs. Nance-Bethea if you have questions.  She has been emailing progress to those enrolled.  There should be no excuses.
  11. Graduation Tickets:  Five per Senior.  You will receive these at graduation practice once all obligations are met.
  12. Senior Picture:  We will try to take a senior picture once we receive THE DILLON HERALD deadlines. (Cap, Gown and appropriate attire)
  13. Scholarships:  At this point, we will not be able to hold an awards ceremony.  However, send your scholarships to Guidance by the first senior practice.
  14. Do not make any discipline mistakes that will hurt your opportunity to graduate or march with your friends.

Tips From the School Nurse:

It’s that time of year again…with Covid-19, the flu, the never-ending “stomach bug”, and other viruses and illnesses all around us, this is a great time to remind you of our fever policy here at Lake View High. We do follow DHEC’s recommendations as far as decisions to exclude any child from school with an illness, with or without fever. If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, he or she must stay home until they are “fever free” without fever reducing medicine (Tylenol or Motrin) for 24 hours. If your child is vomiting or has diarrhea, he or she needs to be able to tolerate a regular diet without vomiting or having diarrhea before returning to school.

If you or your child are being tested for Covid-19, please notify the School Nurse at LVHS. Anyone being tested must quarantine AT HOME until those test results come back, even if you do not feel sick. You must not attend school, after school activities, or work until those results are available. Please keep LVHS informed of any sick student, including anyone in close contact to positive Covid-19 cases (regardless if they are showing symptoms or not), and if your child doesn’t feel well while he/she is at school, he/she should see the school nurse. The school needs to be informed if you or your child tests positive for Covid-19, as they will not be able to attend school during isolation or quarantine. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU ARE ON ISOLATION OR QUARANTINE, THAT YOU STAY HOME FOR THAT DURATION—THIS IS CRITICAL TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS!

CLOSE CONTACT is still defined as direct contact less than 6 feet for a cumulative 15 minutes within a 24-hour timeframe. If you have questions regarding what to do as a close contact or a positive case, feel free to contact the school nurse for further guidance at LVHS 843-759-3009.

IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK, PLEASE KEEP HIM/HER AT HOME! DO NOT SEND HIM/HER TO SCHOOL! Please continue to help us provide a safe environment for everyone in our schools and community by being diligent in masking, social distancing, handwashing, and recognizing when to stay at home if you are sick. Thank you for your efforts in keeping your child’s classroom a healthy place for them to learn!
