Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.

Parents, all the fundraiser items will be delivered to Forest Acres Elementary TOMORROW. Tuesday 10/19. All items MUST be picked up on Tuesday from 2:15 - 6:00 PM at the front entrance of the school building. There are perishable products and we want to make sure they get all picked up since we do not have any refrigeration space available to store orders. Thank you for cooperation as we strive to ensure that everyone practices appropriate social distancing for the health and safety of our families and volunteers. When you arrive to pick up your child’s order, please remain in your vehicle. You will be greeted by a volunteer who will place your child’s order inside your vehicle. You are welcome to send a neighbor, friend, older child or family members to come pick up your items if you are not able to make it. All they need is the student name and we’ll take care of the rest. Thank you so very much for your support! We had a wonderful fundraiser and could not have done it without you!
