Chromebook and Textbooks Distribution

Distribution Date: (To be Announced)

Students will continue to use their school district issued Chromebooks for instructional assignments and activities. As a reminder, students are expected to adhere to the AUP policy


School Uniforms:

Lemira’s students are expected to adhere to the Lemira’s uniform dress attire.

The uniform attire consists of navy, black or khaki pants, shorts, skirts, skorts, or jumpers with polo shirts.  Shirts must have a collar (polo shirt or button–down shirt) and can be any solid color (no stripes or other patterns).  Any brand-name logos on shirts must be no larger than the size of a quarter.  Girls are allowed to wear solid color polo dresses.  

Any hoodies, sweatshirts, sweaters, or jackets that are worn during the school day must be a solid color (no stripes or other patterns) and must be free of designs, decorations, or oversized logos.

School hours are 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., and office hours are 7:15 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  Please continue to review the SSD and Lemira website (lme.sumterschools.net) for additional information regarding meal distribution.

Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures:

All students must be dropped off in the morning under the car pickup breezeway and  cars will exit on the Boulevard Road. Parents are reminded not to drop students off before 6:50 a.m.  For students’ safety, parents are reminded not to drop their child or children off in the grassy area across the street from the school on Fulton Street.  During pick-up, all car riders will be dismissed through the gate under the breezeway using their car number.  Each student will be provided numbered car tags and book bag tags.  For safety reasons, parents will not be allowed to leave their cars and walk-up to the car pick-up gate to retrieve children, and students will not be permitted to cross Fulton Street to walk to their rides. All students must be picked up by 2:45.

Links to all of the virtual events will be placed on Lemira Elementary School’s website, social media pages and teachers’ Google classrooms.

How can my child get a district-issued Chromebook?
• Sumter School District’s One-to-Global initiative provides a technology device for each student in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade.
• Students and parents without a district-issued Chromebook may check one out during scheduled dates at their child’s home school.
• Students who are having issues with technology will be provided with avenues to contact the school media specialist or Chromebook manager for technical support. This will include issues with internet, applications, software, and technology tools.
