Dear Lexington District One Families:
Beginning Monday, July 25 at 8 a.m., you can register your student(s) for the 2022–23 school year.
You will no longer need a secure “snapcode” to register, as you did in past years. Instead, you will register in PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, log in and click on 2022–23 Online Registration.
Please remember to complete the process for each of your students.
If you do NOT already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you must create one before you can register your student for school. Find directions for creating an account here.
Don’t forget that to complete the process, you will need:
- current email address.
- current utility bill/statement, lease/mortgage statement or property tax statement showing parent’s name and home address within the district for proof of residency.
- parent’s South Carolina driver’s license or other state or federal photo identification.
- completed South Carolina Certificate of Immunization only if you are a new Lexington District One student or have been notified by your school nurse of necessary immunizations.
If you do not have access to the internet at home, work, or at your local library but would like to register online, please call or stop by Oak Grove and we will be glad to help you.
If you have a question about the online registration process, please call 803-821-0100. Our office is open this week Monday through Thursday 7:30-5:00.
Please remember that most schools have limited staff in their front office during the summer, and you may have to call the school more than one time.
Important Information about School Lunch Prices for the 2022-2023 School Year
For two years, public schools across the country, including Lexington District One, provided no-cost breakfast and lunch meals to all students thanks to waivers through the United States Department of Agriculture associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This federal funding and waiver system expired on June 30, 2022, and Congress did not extend the program.
Therefore, students will be required to begin paying for meals again when school begins in August, unless they qualify for the Free and Reduced Meals Program.
If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, you MUST complete this online application. The online applications open July 19, 2022.
We encourage families to complete the meal benefit application as soon as possible after July 19th to ensure their student is able to enjoy low-cost, nutritious meals when school starts in August.
For families who do not qualify for free or reduced meals, meal prices for next school year (2022–23) are listed below:
Employees and Visitors: $4.50
Employees and Visitors: $2.90
Thank you for your understanding as we adjust our program based on federal guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Summers at 803-821-1231.
