Welcome to Barnwell Elementary

Home of the Mighty Mustangs

Proud to be a Title I School

Barnwell School District 45 is excited to work with Sight Savers America to provide follow-up services from our recent Focus First vision screenings at BES. Sight Savers America would like to provide follow-up care for any child identified as having a potential vision problem. This follow-up care includes contacting parents to determine if they need assistance in locating, scheduling, and arranging follow-up care. Please email Nurse Bearden at kbearden@bsd45.net by Fri., Dec. 3, 2021 if you would like to opt your child out of this service.

Attendance

Student Absence Note

Every time your child is absent, the attendance office needs to be notified in writing with a medical excuse or a parent note. Please use this form to send in an electronic excuse. While emailing a teacher about your child's absence is greatly appreciated, it is not considered an excuse.

Please be aware that a student is only allowed 5 parent notes per school year. Any other absences will require a medical excuse. If you have any questions regarding attendance, please contact Brooke McCollum at 803-541-1286.

Enrollment Information

Four of the blue hyperlinks will turn green once you have completed the form and one blue hyperlink (first one) will turn yellow once you have completed the form.
