School Announcements
WELCOME TO LMMS!
Principal - Johnny Spears      Assistant Principal - Kela Sharpton
School Hours: 7:45-3:20      School Phone Number: (803) 663-4300

It is very hard to believe that the start of school is just a few short weeks away. We have been very busy at Leavelle McCampbell this summer in preparation for the 2014-2015 school year. There are several things that need to be announced.

Registration for the new school year will take place on Wednesday, August 13, from 12-6, in the school gymnasium. Schools fees are $35 Registration, and if applicable, $3 for band fees or $10 for GT fees.

Sixth grade orientation will be Friday, August 15, from 10-11:30. Please make plans to come by and meet your teachers, see classes, and practice opening locks!

Please see the school supplies list at this link. Specific items needed by teachers may not appear on this list and may be identified by teachers on registration day or the first day of school.

Football and volleyball conditioning will take place during the first week of school from 3:30 – 5:15. Students must have a physical completed and the forms turned in before they can participate. The physical form can be accessed by clicking here. Our new coaches this year are looking forward to having great seasons with our awesome athletes! Coach Sherrod Davis is looking forward to building on last year’s successes as a football team. Coach Erin Hasty is bringing her experiences to LMMS as the new volleyball coach.

Parents, please keep the dress code in mind as you conduct your back to school shopping for your children.

Dress Code

* No elastic waisted athletic shorts or sweatpants.

* Pants must be worn at the waist with no undergarments or basketball shorts showing.

* Shirts/dresses must completely cover the front, back, stomach, and sides when students raise their arms. All tops must be over the shoulder area (three inches wide), and not expose cleavage, even if covered by a sheer or crocheted top.

Required Vaccine
 ATTENTION PARENTS OF UPCOMING 7TH GRADE STUDENTS-PLEASE READ:
South Carolina law requires that all students entering 7th grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). Now is a good time to make an appointment for your child to receive this immunization if you have not already done so.  If your child has already received this immunization, please bring this information with you on registration day.  If you have further questions regarding this requirement, please contact the main office.
Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, if the school district calls for schools to start at a two-hour delay, Leavelle McCampbell will start at 9:45. If the school district calls for a two hour early release due to weather conditions, Leavelle McCampbell will dismiss at 1:20.
