Back to school information for SIES Students & Families

The SIES families, faculty, staff and students are back to school for the 2010-2011 school year and our “swing campus” is buzzing with the energy and excitement a new school year brings. We launched our Innsibrook sale this week and the students are very excited about the sale.  These funds go DIRECTLY to our school and are spent on programs that benefit EVERY student and our staff.  There are many wonderful items for sale this year plus the fabulous Innisbrook wrap! Turn in your sales coupons for Silly Bands – remember coupon prizes will be awarded daily. The sale runs through September 15th – start selling today.   

There has been some news coverage of our relocation and those links are below.

Drop off is 7:10 am to 7:30 am with the tardy bell at 7:35 am and school will be dismissed at 2:30pm. 

Drop off and Pick up TRAFFIC FLOW Information – Important parents and families please read carefully.
The Mount Pleasant Police Chief Sewell and our own Chief Howard worked together to develop a safe Drop-off and Pick-up plan for our school at the 1120 Rifle Range location. 
They are requesting the Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island parents travel  to Mount Pleasant via the Ben Sawyer/Stith Bridge. Proceed Right onto Chuck Dawley (around the Piggly Wiggly shopping center). Travel Chuck Dawley to Myrick Road. Take a Right at Myrick Road and you will go to the far end of the drop off loop on Myrick and take a left into the drop off loop from Myrick. Teachers and Staff will greet your child as they did last year and then you will proceed to the exit and take a Right back onto Myrick Road and proceed back to the light at Chuck Dawley.  The traffic from Whitesides will be on Rifle Range near their new campus at the same time in the morning so avoiding that congested area is important. There is a parking lot on the Myrick Road side of the school near the ballfield that will be for walk in drop off and some reserved faculty and staff parking.  Please note that the front loop at school next to the playground on Rifle Range will be for Bus traffic during drop off and pick up.  It will be visitor parking at other times.  Additionally, the parking lot that is on the far side of the school will have parking for staff, faculty and visitors as well.  This parking lot will also serve as the Kaleidescope parking lot as it is adjacent to the cafeteria.   A detailed map can be found on the link below.   There will be police officers helping with this traffic flow at the start of school and you will be unable to take at right or left onto Myrick from Rifle Range.  This plan was developed to keep our SIES families safe and prevent major traffic backups on busy streets during morning rush traffic so please be patient while everyone learns the route.  Walk-in parents will park in the Myrick Road parking lot near the ballfield. Please be aware it is a longer walk to the front of the new school so please allow enough time.
