Ridge Road Detour Notice

Star Parents:
Please see the attached document I received today from the Cherokee County Government Engineering Department.  Once Bells Ferry Road reopens, Ridge Road will be closed to through traffic.  Access to Sixes Elementary will be ONLY from the Sixes end of Ridge Rd.  This detour period goes from August 13 through August 24.  

My strong suggestion is to have your children ride the bus if at all possible.  Thank you for your patience as road improvements are completed.  

Ridge Road at Bells Ferry Closing Notice

Sincerely,
Cindy Crews

#CCSD1stDay Message from Superintendent of Schools

Please see the following message to parents from Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower:

Today, we found silver linings in our rain clouds. 

No one wants to hear a forecast for rain on the first day of school.  It soaks those new school clothes and backpacks, but, of greater importance, it also makes the morning traffic more challenging and dangerous.

Our teachers and leaders carried on, many getting drenched as they greeted car riders in the process, but remaining enthusiastic and welcoming.  And you carried on, too, and we appreciate the patience and kindness you showed, especially as buses were slowed by the rain and car rider lines grew long.
