Dear Students and Beloved Families of Furman Middle School,

I hope this letter finds you all safe and in good spirits. I am writing to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your swift response and understanding during these unexpected changes brought about by Hurricane Idalia. Your resilience and adaptability have truly touched our hearts.

In times like these, we are reminded of the strength that lies within our school community. Your willingness to adjust to e-learning and embrace flexibility demonstrates your commitment to education and personal growth. I am inspired by your positivity and determination, and I have no doubt that together, we will overcome any challenges that come our way.

As we prepare for the weather that lies ahead, I want to offer words of encouragement. Let’s continue to support one another, both academically and emotionally. Your kindness and unity are powerful forces that can brighten even the stormiest days. Above all, I implore you to prioritize your safety and well-being. Take this time to be with your families, stay connected virtually, and take comfort in knowing that we are weathering this storm as one supportive family.

We eagerly anticipate your return to school on Friday for a half-day of learning and connection. Your presence brings life and vibrancy to our halls, and we can’t wait to see you again.

In the meantime, may you find peace, safety, and good health. Remember that we are here for you, and our community’s strength knows no bounds. Let’s face the days ahead with hope, courage, and the knowledge that brighter skies are just beyond the horizon.

 

With warm wishes,

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and high spirits. As we prepare for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year, I wanted to take a moment to provide you with some important updates regarding our daily schedule, as well as drop-off and pick up procedures.

Starting from the first day of school, the building will open its doors to students at 7:50 a.m. This will allow ample time for students to eat breakfast, settle in and begin their day on a positive note when homeroom intervention starts at 8:00 a.m.

Additionally, please be advised that early dismissal will conclude at 3:00 p.m. after which we kindly request that parents pick up their children in the car rider line when dismissal begins at 3:30 p.m. Please assist our team in ensuring all car riders are picked up no later than 3:50 p.m.

We truly appreciate your continued cooperation and support in adhering to these procedures. By doing so, we can ensure a safe and efficient environment for all our students. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the daily schedule or pickup procedures, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office at (803) 481-8519.

Thank you once again for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. We look forward to another successful year at Furman Middle School, where we continue to foster an environment that nurtures academic growth and personal development.

Warmest regards,

James T. Curry
Principal
