A Ware Shoals High School student was arrested today at school for making a verbal bomb threat. School officials and the SRO took swift action to ensure safety. Disciplinary policies will be followed. Keeping students safe is our priority!
Message from WSSD51: Bus #9 is running approximately 20-25 minutes behind. We appreciate your patience.
Great day of training in WSSD51! Our district continues to refine our emergency practices to ensure safe learning environments for our students and staff. Special thanks to law enforcement from Abbeville / Greenwood Counties, WSH's Squad 51, and our district nursing staff.
These students just finished reading a novel about the Salem Witch Trials and were put into groups and assigned topics that might be considered modern day witch hunts. The topics were: attitudes toward Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor / attitudes toward Muslin Americans after 9/11 / attitudes toward communists during the cold war [McCarthyism]/ attitudes towards HIV/AIDS victims in the late 1980s. This is the first time these students have done anything like this and were very nervous...they did a great job!
Dear WSSD 51 Parents, Valentine’s Day is Thursday, and we want to inform you that schools may not accept deliveries of flowers, balloons, candy, etc. We can, however, provide an alternative. If you wish to purchase flowers, balloons, etc. for your child, the local florist can send a gift card to the school, notifying him or her to stop by the shop to pick up a special surprise. Gift cards can be distributed at school without disruption to the learning process and in a discreet way so as not to embarrass children who do not receive them. Occasional deliveries to the school during the year are allowed, but we do not allow balloons or flowers in glass vases on the buses at any time. If you choose to send your child something of this type for his/her birthday, please provide a ride home that day if your child usually rides a bus. Thanks for your cooperation! Sincerely, Dr. Fay Sprouse Superintendent
