Internet Issues:

Student’s Chromebooks do not connect to the school Wi-Fi unless they are on campus.  When a student is working from home Wi-Fi issues are directly related to the Wi-Fi service and/or the provider.  Please contact your provider if your student’s Chromebook keeps getting kicked off the Internet or the spinner icon is constantly spinning on the screen.  When troubleshooting one suggestion would be to ensure that other devices (smart TVs, tablets, etc.) are not accessing the Wi-Fi at the same time and if they are to turn them off so that only the Chromebook is using the Wi-Fi.

Important Senior Picture Update

SENIORS: The time has come to get your Senior Portraits taken. In order to ensure safety and social distancing, no walk-ups will be accepted. You must visit the Legacy Studios Website linked below to sign up for a time slot. There are a limited number of appointments for this first session so it will be first come first serve. We will schedule another date later and announce sign-ups for it. There is a $15 sitting fee that must be paid online when you register.

Next Senior Picture Dates: September 30th and October 7, 2020.  (September 23rd picture date is full.)


When you come to take your picture, you will enter the mini-gym through the doors behind the Gamecock statue. Make sure to arrive about 10 minutes before your appointment time so that the line doesn’t begin to back up. You must wear a mask until it is your turn to take your picture. No one else can accompany you for this session. Maintain safe social distances of 6 feet between you and everyone else. Make sure to follow the instructions provided on the website as far as what to wear as you will not be able to leave the gym area to change clothes and come back. All photography clothing will be steamed and sterilized between uses. If you are not comfortable exchanging the shared clothing, you may come dressed in your own traditional black tux and bowtie or off the shoulder black velvet dress.
School Pictures
Seniors, we are planning to schedule at least one more date in October that we will announce as soon as the date is set.  Next Senior Picture Dates: September 30th and October 7, 2020.
Underclassman pictures are still being planned.  More information to come as we know more.
