Back to school information helps parents, students prepare

Posted: August 16, 2017 - 12:13am

The new school year starts in a week - Aug. 23 - for Aiken County schools, including North Augusta.

Here is some information from the Aiken County Public School District's website to help parents and students prepare:

 

Registration
Registration has already been held at North Augusta schools, but parents of students who did not register yet can still arrange it by contacting schools directly.

Requirements
Parents of new students must provide the following:

-- Two proofs of residency in the custodial parent's name. Accepted proofs of residency include:

-- A current rental agreement, mortgage contract/statement, or property tax receipt (with the custodial parent's name on the property)

-- A current water or power bill with the service address listed (cable and internet bills will not be accepted).

-- A copy of the student's official state-issued birth certificate

-- A copy of the student's SC Immunization Record.

Parents of returning students will not need to provide proof of residency.

 

Transportation registration
All students must be pre-registered to receive transportation services for the 2017-2018 school year.

This is separate from and in addition to registration to attend school.

Registration for transportation/school bus services may be made online by visiting the district's website, acpsd.net, and completing the registration form located on the transportation department page.

Please note that parents/guardians of kindergarten, first- and second-grade students must provide alternate caregiver information on the bus registration form in the event they are not available to be at the bus stop to receive their child.

Special needs transportation registration will be held at the district's transportation office, 2457 Jefferson Davis Highway, Warrenville, 29851. Questions: Dottie Cooper, (803) 593-7130.

Area 2 Schools (Belvedere Elementary, Hammond Hill Elementary, Mossy Creek, North Augusta Elementary, North Augusta Middle, Paul Knox Middle and North Augusta High ) will register for transportation at Mossy Creek Elementary School, 421 West Five Notch Road, North Augusta, 29841. Questions: Vince Harmon (803) 442-6106.
