The email will contain directions on how to create an account and on how to register each of their students. FinalForms has provided a Returning Student Parent Playbook to help parents with account creation and registration. Parent’s that do not receive an email may call their student’s school beginning Monday, July 26th to begin the registration process. More information can be found on the ENROLL page ofthe district website.

SDOC 4K & Kindergarten Staggered Start
Children in the School District of Oconee County 4K and Kindergarten classes will begin school on a staggered start for the 2021-2022 school year. The purpose of a staggered start is to allow students who are in the early stages of experiencing school to be exposed to school-wide and classroom expectations in a small group. This transition will allow for the first day with their entire class to operate smoothly. A staggered start will also allow the teacher to begin building relationships with his/her students and complete required beginning of the year assessments with each student in a more manageable environment.
From Monday, August 16 through Thursday, August 19th, 4K and Kindergarten students will attend just one day of school. Then, all students will attend school on Friday, August 20th. Teachers will contact parents/guardians to schedule what day of the week their child will attend school, schedule parent conferences for 4K students, and review other details about the staggered start procedures. If you have any further questions please contact your child’s school.
