Before and After School Care

  • 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.

ID & Car Tags

  • 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.

    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.

    You must have a car tag to be in the car pickup line or you need to come to
