STUDENT SAFETY

Florence County School District Three’s priority is to maintain a safe and orderly, learning environment to, from, and at school so that we can provide all students a quality education. Students should come daily ready to learn with paper, pencil, assigned books and assigned projects only. Parents, we need your help to keep our schools safe. You can help by:

  1. Talking with your child daily about safety and about making good choices,
  2. Checking your child’s book bag daily for any items that shouldn’t come to school,
  3. Monitoring your child’s use of technology,
  4. Reporting any unsafe activity to school administrators.
  5. Treating everyone with respect. No Bullying!

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
