• School Day 

    Student Instructional Hours: 7:30 a.m. – 2:20 p.m.  (doors open at 7 a.m.)
    Office Hours: 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


    All students are expected to be in class at 7:30 a.m. each morning. Your child will be considered tardy after 7:30 a.m. and must report to the main office to obtain a tardy pass. Parents must accompany their child to the office.


    Early dismissal of students is handled in the main office. If a parent wishes to pick up his/her child during the day, he/she must come in to the office to properly sign the child out of school. Students must be signed out prior to 2 p.m. in order to be released early. The parent will be asked to show identification. Should the parent send another adult to pick up his/her child, written authorization from the parent is required. DEPARTURE PROCEDURES OF STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALTERED WITHOUT WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS FROM PARENTS.  

    Change of Family Information

    Parents are asked to keep mailing addresses, ALL phone numbers, place of employment, legal custody rights, and emergency contact information up to date and accurate at all times. Please notify the school office immediately in the event of any changes in information.


    For the safety of our students, we require that all parents and visitors are required to present a photo ID in order to enter the building.  

    Pledge of Allegiance and Moment of Silence

    Teachers will involve students in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and observing a moment of silence each day. This is required by South Carolina law. 


    Lexington County School District One believes in regular, high-quality communication between home, school and community.  In fact, research shows that students with informed and involved parents do better academically.  In an effort to improve the way we communicate with you, Lexington One will use ParentSquare.  ParentSquare consolidates all district, school and classroom communications into one user-friendly portal and allows families to choose how they want to receive their communications (text, email, or app notifications) and when they receive them. 

    Celebrating Birthdays

    We do want to celebrate students' birthdays at school, and we want students to feel special and recognized. Please only send in snacks or treats that are able to be distributed individually.  For example, cookies, cupcakes, donuts, muffins, pre-packaged pretzels/chips, etc.  Items such as pencils, crayons, etc. can also be given as birthday treats. Please contact your child’s teacher before sending snacks to school for the class.

    Collaborative Planning/Early Release Days

    During Teacher-Led Collaborative Planning, teachers get together to creatively discuss and solve educational issues, find solutions and plan instruction. The focus is on improving teaching and learning. Teachers will work in grade level or subject area groups. They will review instructional materials, plan for specific instructional interventions for students, plan detailed academic teaching strategies, or, if requested by teachers, receive training on an instructional concept, instructional materials, or instructional equipment.

    Elementary students will be dismissed at 11:20 AM on these days (lunch will be served).

    Smoke-free Campus

    Midway Elementary School, like all schools in Lexington School District One, is a smoke-free campus. Parents, visitors, and staff members are not permitted to smoke on this campus.

    School Store  

    (Available for 1st through 5th grade) Midway Elementary School has a school store that will be located close to the main entrance.  Hours of operation are 7:15 – 7:35 a.m. Monday through Friday.  Only items that are needed at school are sold in the school store.  Examples include glue sticks, pencils, notebook paper, erasers, and markers.
