With cold/flu season upon us, many parents have asked about when they should or should not send their child to school. DHEC has created a brochure to help with making those decisions.

Fall Pictures will be sent home this afternoon in Thursday Folders. Each child will receive an envelope with a full package of pictures to review. If you are not interested in purchasing any of the pictures, simply return the entire packet to your child’s teacher. However, if you are interested in purchasing any (or all) of the pictures, simply follow the directions that are printed on the collection envelope that is included in the packet. You will have two options for payment: return money in the enclosed envelope or pay online (directions for online payment are included). The due date for returning payment and any pictures that you do not wish to purchase is October 27th. Finally, if your child was not present for Picture Day, we will be doing make-up pictures on November 14th. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front office.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) TOMORROW! The national test will consist of two portions, testing WEA and EAS capabilities. Both tests are scheduled to begin at approximately 2:20pm ET on Wednesday, October 4. The WEA portion of the test will be directed to ALL consumer cell phones. The test message will display in either English or in Spanish, depending on the language settings of the wireless handset. The EAS portion of the test will be sent to radios and televisions. *** PLEASE NOTE *** Experts advise people at risk for domestic violence who keep a hidden safety phone at home to switch that phone OFF during FEMA's October 4, 2023, nationwide test of the National Emergency Alert system so the phone's existence is not inadvertently revealed to an abuser.

On National Custodian Appreciation Day, we just want to let the custodial team at MLES know how much we appreciate what they do. Without their work, our students wouldn’t have a safe and clean school in which to learn.

Fall Picture Day is this Thursday, September 14th! Say Cheese! Also, as a reminder, there is no need to order pictures ahead of time. A few weeks after picture day, a packet of pictures will be sent home with each student and families will be able to choose to purchase pictures then.
