* Athletic Fee: Middle school students who play middle school sports pay $25/sport. Middle school students who play high school sports pay the high school fee of $50/sport. No student will pay more than two athletic fees in a given school year. ** Technology Fee: Only paid by rising 9th graders and new students. (Current 10th-12th graders have already paid this one-time fee.) Families who are unable to attend Registration Day should contact their school’s office prior to Aug. 20, the first day of school for students.

Families in the Kershaw County School District can fill out their children’s school registration materials online now at www.kcsdschools.net/register and should plan to attend Registration Day next week.

“We are pleased to be able to offer the online registration again this year,” Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins said. “We have had a good response from families in the past, especially since we are able to offer the online information in both English and Spanish.”

Robbins said completing the online registration process prior to Registration Day will save families a significant amount of time on that day. If the online registration process is not completed prior to attending Registration Day, families will have to complete it at school that day.

Families of all students -- both new and returning -- should attend Registration Day, which is Wednesday, July 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 to 6 p.m. for elementary and middle schools.

High School Registration Days are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. as follows:

Camden High: July 25-26 (all grades both days)

Continuous Learning Center: July 25 (all grades)

Lugoff-Elgin High (in the annex building due to construction): July 25 (9th grade); July 26 (10th-12th graders)

North Central High: July 25 (all grades)

All families will be required to provide a current (two months or less) utility bill (electric or water) that contains the student’s address on Registration Day.

Families of returning students -- including families who completed their kindergarten students’ initial enrollment this spring -- will receive a “Snapcode” this week to complete the online registration process.

Families of students who are new to the school district should contact their student’s school to set up an appointment. For the initial enrollment appointment, families need to bring: a copy of the child’s birth certificate, the child’s South Carolina Certificate of Immunization, a parent/guardian’s valid South Carolina driver’s license, a tax document with the current and correct address, a check stub with the current and correct address, either a mortgage or lease agreement or legally notarized documentation from the landlord and a current (two months or less) utility bill (electric or water) that contains the student’s address.  A child’s registration will not be complete without this documentation.

Families can also complete applications for free and reduced priced meals online.  An application for free/reduced meal benefits must be submitted each school year, and doing the paperwork online before school starts helps speed up the notification process. Families can apply online and check the status of their application at www.kcsdschools.net/meals.

Again this school year, a fee schedule has been implemented due to reduced local and state revenue. Fees will be assessed according to a student’s meal status.
