Dear Parents,       

The 2015-2016 School Year is off to a great start here at Kingsbury Elementary! It was encouraging to see such outstanding parent participation at our beginning of school orientation programs! We are truly looking forward to working with you and your child this year.  As mentioned at orientation, our theme this year is “Excellence in Action – Celebrating 25 Years.” Working together as a school family, we will provide an extraordinary learning experience for all Kingsbury students.


About Our School

Dear Parents,

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!  


Phillip W. Jackson Principal

Our fall fundraiser is in full swing!  Your participation is sincerely needed.  This fundraiser will provide funding for classroom technology improvements such as Chrome Books and also assist us in providing important reading incentives for our school!   Please note that the fundraiser ends on Friday, September 4!  Thank you for your support and continued confidence in Kingsbury Elementary!!
