A Message from the Superintendent


Hello everyone,

Congratulations to the class of 2020, as well your parents, your teachers, and everyone who helped you get to this day!

I don't think this year's graduation ceremony is one any of you imagined. At a time when you should be celebrating all the knowledge you've gained, you may be grieving what you've lost: the moves you planned, the jobs you earned, and the experiences you were looking forward to. In bleak moments like these, it can be difficult to find hope. So let me skip right to the end and tell you what happens: you will prevail. There's an interesting trend I've noticed: it's very conventional for every generation to underestimate the potential of the following one.
 
It's because they don't realize that the progress of one generation becomes the foundational premise for the next. And it takes a new set of people to come along and realize all the possibilities. Don't lose that impatience. It will create the next technology revolution and enable you to build things my generation could never dream of. You may be just as frustrated by my generation's approach to climate change, or education. Be impatient. It will create the progress the world needs. You will make the world better in your own ways. Even if you don't know exactly how. The important thing is to be open-minded so you can find what you love.

 

Continue to Imagine Greatness!

Coronavirus Safety Tips

 

For the concern of our Dorchester School District Four parents, students, staff and community partners, the District is closely monitoring the Coronavirus and working closely with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as far as guidelines and recommendations. 

Our main area of concern is for the safety and protection of our students, faculty and staff members. 

 

Therefore, the following guidelines will be followed as recommended from DHEC:

 

  • Staying home when sick
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth
  • No hugging or shaking hands 
  • Cough or sneeze into the elbow or use a tissue and discard in the trash 
  • Clean and disinfect classrooms, hallways, office areas and restrooms daily  
  • If a student or staff member becomes ill with flu-like symptoms, go to the school nurse. The nurse will execute standard medical procedures. 
  • Parents are reminded that if your child has a fever, do not send him or her to school. 

     

    Dorchester School District Four will continue to update this information as more information becomes available. 

     

    Thanks for helping to keep our students and staff safe and healthy. The District is equipped with the necessary sanitizing materials.
