School Picture Day will be held for our Hybrid A Students on Monday, November 30 and for our Hybrid B Students on Tuesday, December 1. Pictures will be taken in the school cafeteria this year. Flyers were sent home with our Hybrid students this week!
Our Virtual only students are also invited to participate. Photo package information is also available on our school’s Facebook Page. Virtual students may come between the hours of 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM on either November 30 or December 1. Parents, please drop your child off at the school’s main entrance, park, and wait outside. Our staff will be on hand to direct students where to go and get them back to you. The process will be a quick one and should only take a few minutes. If you have any questions, please contact our school at 803-775-6244.

Virtual Learning Request
Hello Kingsbury families. This is your principal, Phillip Jackson with some important school announcements. By now, you should have received a letter from me and a call from your child’s teacher concerning your child’s assigned group for hybrid instruction. As announced, phase 2 of hybrid instruction which includes second and third grades will begin on Mon 26 Oct. Phase 3 is tentatively scheduled to begin on Thurs 5 Nov and includes our fourth and fifth grades. The timing of this phase is contingent upon the numbers in terms of rates of positivity.
Through the hybrid model, students in Group A will receive in-person instruction on MON and THURS and virtual instruction (participating live from home) on TUES and FRI. Students in Group B will receive in-person instruction on TUES and FRI and virtual instruction (participating live from home) on MON and THURS. Wednesday is a day set aside to deep clean the facilities and for staff prof development. Students will work asynchronously or independently on those days.
Parents who chose the virtual option for their child must remain virtual the entire semester. We cannot arbitrarily switch students due to planning necessities and class capacity requirements. If you have not done so, please go to our school website, kbe.sumterschools.net, and complete the virtual learning request form by clicking on the link provided.
Our school hours are 7:30 AM to 2:15 PM. Buses will run. In accordance with district procedures on COVID safety, parents may not walk students to their classrooms at this time. Our staff will be on hand in the front drop off area to assist students as needed.
We deeply appreciate your ongoing partnership and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if we may be of help at any time.
Phillip W. Jackson
