LES Archery Team Places Fourth at the S.C. Archery in the Schools Tournament
On March 28, 2014 the La France Elementary School Archery Team competed with twenty-four other elementary teams from across the state during the SC Archery in the Schools State Tournament at the Palmetto Sportsmen’s Classic in Columbia. The team had a very strong showing and represented their school and Anderson School District Four very well. The La France Elementary Archery Team, led by Coaches Jeff Terry and Stephen Brock, went back to the state tournament for the fifth consecutive year. 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. The LES team had a very impressive showing with a fourth place finish and a score of 2788 points. Congratulations to the LES Archery Team!
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.

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.
