Spring is in the air at Kingsbury Elementary! Our students are excited about the many special events and trips that are scheduled for the remainder of the year. It’s hard to believe that we are entering the final quarter of the school year. One of the highlights of March was the Knights Royal Ball which drew over 140 attendees. Students enjoyed an evening of food, dancing, and special photographs. It was a great school-community event and as always, a favorite annual tradition.
In order to improve our traffic
flow during afternoon dismissal, Kingsbury will be implementing a "right
turn only" practice at the exit gate. This decision is based on our
observations and consultation with the Sumter Police Department. This new procedure will take effect on
Tuesday, September 1 and will be followed from 1:50-2:30 pm each day.
While this may be an inconvenience
for some, I deeply appreciate your understanding, patience, and flexibility in
this matter. It should have a significant
impact on our traffic congestion and reduce the wait during pickup.
At present there are no changes planned
for the morning drop off, but we will continue to monitor and adjust as needed.
Thank you for your support and
continued confidence in Kingsbury Elementary!
