In 2022, the South Carolina General Assembly unanimously passed S.1103, otherwise known as the South Carolina Child ID law. As a result, Lexington County School District Three has been given at-home child ID kits that are available for each student. To obtain a kit for your student(s), please contact your child's school. Our schools will work with parents to arrange a pick up time. ID kits may also be sent home with students from school when requested. These are inkless, at-home kits that are stored by parents and guardians that never enter a database. This kit should take less than two minutes to complete and is designed to be stored solely by you as a parent or guardian in a cool, dry, and safe place at home. Please understand there is no obligation to request or use the kit. However, it will allow you to have your child’s vital information, fingerprints, and DNA in a safe place should you ever need it. These kits are to be STORED AT HOME and should only be given to law enforcement in case of an emergency.
Spring Pictures will be taken at BLPS on Friday, March 24th. Students will take a class photo and individual photos. Class photos may be purchased for $10. Order forms for group photos will be sent home next week with students. No money will be collected for individual photos on March 24th. A proof package will be sent home from school a few weeks later with purchasing information.
Lexington County School District Three is excited to announce that our registration for brand new 4K and 5K students for the 2023-2024 school year will officially start on March 1st and will run through March 31st.
