DES Archery Team Tryouts and Information 2020

DES archery tryouts will be held on November 12 and 13, 2019 from after school until 4 pm at the Deerfield Elementary School Gym.  Students do not need to bring any equipment to tryouts but may bring their Genesis Original Bow if they have one. Tryouts are open to all students grade 4 and 5.

Students invited to join the team must pay a fee of $80.00.  This money is nonrefundable.  This fee will register archers for 2 tournaments.  It also covers coaching, equipment use, and a t-shirt.  Archer’s parents must notify the coach by email ahead of time for any practices or tournaments missed.  Please let the coach know as soon as possible if you can’t attend a tournament.  Some tournaments may fill before all DES archers are registered. Students not behaving at practice or tournaments may be suspended or removed from the team at the coach’s discretion.

School Flu Clinic Coming

October 11, 2019

Dear Parents:

We know how important your children are to you and how much you want to keep them healthy.

Knowing this, Deerfield Elementary partnered with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to make flu vaccinations available to your child on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Since there is a flu clinic occurring before our flu clinic on that day, we estimate that our clinic will begin about 10 a.m.

There will be no cost to you or your child for this flu shot. If applicable, payment from your insurer or Medicaid may be made to DHEC on your behalf. You will note that the form asks for that information.

If you have not already had your child vaccinated this year and are interested in getting your child vaccinated at school:

  • Go to using your smart telephone, computer, or tablet and enter 13201070 as your validation code.
  • Complete the online parent consent form and submit it to DHEC.

If your child is under the age of 9, he/she may need to get a second flu shot in order to receive the best protection. DHEC will notify you if your child will need a second flu shot.

If you decide not to participate in our vaccination clinic, we encourage you to contact your child’s healthcare provider or health department to get the flu shot for your child.

If, after you submit the online Parent Consent Form, there are any changes in your child’s health or you decide you no longer want your child to receive the flu shot at school, please contact the DHEC Regional Immunization Office at 803-602-2073 before the scheduled vaccination clinic.

Thank you for all that you do at home to keep our students healthy and ready to learn.

If you have any questions about the flu clinic, please call the district’s nursing and health services director at 803-821-3794.
