Virtual students will be notified of your appointment. If your child will take medicine during the school day, please make an appointment with our school nurse to drop it off this week between the hours of 8 am and 3:00 pm.
Flat Rock Elementary Back to School Information
As of July 31, 2020, the South Carolina Department of Education mandated: "Students and staff in South Carolina public schools must wear a face-covering upon entering a school building, moving through hallways, during carpool/bus drop off or pick up, and when social distancing is not possible or optimal. Student face coverings may be removed upon teacher or administrator direction while in the classroom or during special activities outside the classroom." This mandate follows our mask policy stated by Mrs. Hipp in the superintendent update last week. Masks will be provided for students when boarding buses or before entering the school building if they do not have one. If you have questions about the SCDE mandate, view the guidelines here: https://bit.ly/SCDE-Masks
