Lockers will be optional this year, with a $5 fee if you choose to get a locker. This can be payable at orientation, or to your child's homeroom teacher. Also, if you had a chromebook at Furman last year, you may pay your $20 to the Homeroom teacher. All others (new to Furman and 6th graders) will wait until technology night which will be scheduled soon. Keep checking back for more details. PE uniforms will be $20.
South Carolina law requires that all students entering seventh grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine. The Tdap vaccine protects children from three serious diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (often called whooping cough). If your child has already had the vaccine, you must provide the school with proof that they have had it. If your child hasn’t received the vaccine, please contact your health care provider ASAP to schedule an appointment for your child to be given the vaccine. Once your child has received the vaccine, please remember that you must provide proof to the school nurse. Students, entering the seventh grade, who have not received the Tdap vaccine by the beginning of the school year, will not be allowed to attend school until they have received the vaccine and provided proof to the school nurse.If you have any questions, please contact the school.
Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures: Students who arrive by car should be dropped off between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. at the student drop-off area located in the fenced area beside the school. Students may be dropped off at the main office entrance after 8:30 a.m. Students may be picked up in the afternoon in the fenced area beside the school at 3:30 p.m. Parents must pick students up no later than 4:00 p.m. As a safety measure, all parents, students, and smaller children are asked to remain in their vehicles while waiting to pick up students.
