District Announcements
Dr. Danny Merck Named New Superintendent
We're happy to introduce Dr. Danny Merck as the new Superintendent of the School District of Pickens County. Dr. Merck comes to the position with 23 years of experience in education, most of which were spent right here in the district. Dr. Merck has served in roles including teacher, coach, principal and district administrator. For the past two years, he has been the principal of Daniel High School.
He will officially step into his new leadership role on May 1. Until then, he will work with the board of trustees and our current Superintendent, Dr. Kelly Pew, to ensure a smooth transition.

Changes To School Calendar!
The 2013-2014 School Calendar was revised for the remainder of the school year on March 24. These calendars reflect changes because of snow days. We are using all three of the snow days that were built into the calendar at the start of the year, and the remaining snow days were forgiven by the board.

Key Changes:
  • School ends on June 6.
  • Exams (except for seniors) will be from June 3-6.
  • Schools will be open on April 21, May 23 and June 6.
  • Several grading period and report card dates have shifted.

Parents will notice something new on this calendar: 1:30 p.m. dismissal days. You may also hear these referred to as Early Release days. School will dismiss early on these days for teacher training. Early Release days will be on October 7, 2014 and February 3, 2015.

News from Pickens High School
Alive at 25 Course Required for Parking Pass

Because we are committed to keeping our students safe behind the wheel, we have implemented a proactive program called Alive at 25 at all School District of Pickens County high schools. Students will not receive parking permits until they have successfully completed the course. 

All upcoming classes are listed on the South Carolina Alive at 25 website:
www.scaliveat25.org. Students may register online at www.scaliveat25.org or by calling the South Carolina National Safety Council office at 803-732-6778. During the registration process, students should specify the name of their own high schools so certificates can be sent to the proper schools. The staff at PHS cannot register your student for Alive at 25. You must do this through the phone number listed or online.

Here are the dates that are scheduled at PHS: 

April 22, 2014 – 4:00 PM – 8:30 PM

June 10, 2014 – 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM

July 22, 2014 – 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM

Other Dates Available at EHS, LHS, and DHS





 

2013-2014 PHS Parking Forms for Download
Here are the forms needed to be printed to get a parking pass for your pre-registration packet to be mailed to speed your process at registration. Please download the correct grade form and remember that no 9th grader (even a repeating 9th grader) is allowed to park at PHS. You must have completed Alive at 25 and present a valid SC Driver's License (not a Learner's Permit) to pick up your parking pass. The form must be completed with a student and parent signature.
