If you need to enroll your child in the before or after school care program, please click here.
Applications are available during open house and during the school year. If you enroll your child after school has begun, please make sure a note is sent in with your child to the teacher to let them know when they will begin after school care.
In order to help ensure the safety at our school, we require all visitors to our campus to show their ID in the office. If you are on the student's contact list, your ID will be scanned and you will be given a pass to go on our campus. Your pass must be turned back in when leaving campus.
For a student to be picked up from school at dismissal, the vehicle must have a school issued car tag displayed. Please remain in your vehicle and pull forward to have your child loaded by one of our staff members. We do not allow people to walk up to the dismissal line for the safety of our students. If you have a car tag, remain in your vehicle. If you are picking the student up early or you do not have your car tag at dismissal, please bring your ID to the office for your child to be called.
You can't be aWESome without WES!

Inclement Weather Make Up Days
Published Monday, September 17, 2018
In anticipation of inclement weather, three days were built into
the Berkeley County School District instructional calendar for
this school year. Those inclement weather days,
October 22, 2018; January 7, 2019 and March 18, 2019
will be used to make up days lost to Hurricane Florence.
Any additional days, including a make-up day for the fourth day lost
to Florence, will be decided by the Berkeley County Board of Education.
Inclement weather days added to the calendar by the board will be shared with
BCSD students, employees, parents and stakeholders via multiple
platforms when a decision is made.
The complete BCSD instructional calendar is available for
viewing and download at bcsdschools.net.

Email/dojo is not a reliabe method for transportation changes due to internet issues

Car Riders: Send a note that your child is a car rider.
You must have a car tag to be in the car pickup line or you need to come to
the office with your ID to get car tag/pick up student.
No one should walk up to the car pick up line for their child,
please come to the office with ID if you are not in a car.
Bus Riders: Send a note that your child is a bus rider.
Please include the home address (with subdivision),
a current contact phone number along with
the bus # they will be riding if you know it. This will help with dismissal.

Picking up your child early: Send a note to the teacher if you are picking up your child early.
That way if your child is at lunch, recess or special area when you come to pick them up,
they may have already packed up and brought their book bag with them.
