Each team member shot three scoring rounds from a ten-meter distance and three rounds from a fifteen-meter distance. Each round consists of a possible fifty points and a total of three hundred for the tournament. The tournament score is comprised of the top twelve archers’ scores.

SAVE

Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act

The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, recently approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to store supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for individuals with unknown life-threatening allergic reactions, or anaphylaxis.

Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide epinephrine auto-injectors for their children at school. These students will continue to have Emergency Care Plans (ECPs) and Individual Healthcare Plans (IHPs) developed by the school nurse.

Every school in ASD4 has a full time registered nurse and at least 5 first responders who are trained in recognizing signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, epinephrine auto-injector administration and follow up procedures in the case of allergic reactions.

Make-up Days

Following the closing of schools for multiple days across the state, legislation was introduced and signed by the Governor.  The joint resolution allows local school boards to waive up to five days missed due to inclement weather.  The district must exhaust all statutorily required make up days remaining on the calendar before it may exempt any of the five days allowed under the joint resolution.

 Since A4 had not used its statutorily required make-up days remaining on the calendar, all students and staff must attend on June 2, 3 and 4 (as designated on the approved calendar for 13-14). Our local board has voted to forgive the other two days missed.


Mother-Son Night
On Friday, January 31st, 2014, LES PTO put together a special night for mothers and sons. It was Mother-Son Dinner and a Movie night. The cafeteria was decorated with sports decor and the menu included pizza, salad, and dessert. We would like to thank Pizza Hut in Clemson for their help with the cost of the pizza. The meal was delicious and enjoyed by all. Following dinner, moms and sons gathered with their blankets and pillows on the floor for the showing of Facing the Giants. Many enjoyed the movie, but boys will be boys. They were really excited to get to run around and kick the ball together. They got to show off some their athletic skills. Thank you so much to our PTO for offering this event to our families.
