The parking area on the left side of the building (closer to the road) and bus loop will be available for guest parking. The parking spots to the right side of the building are reserved for handicap parking and for our guests that are not able to walk long distances. See you soon!
This year we have two days designated for Grandparents Breakfast to allow for extra space. If you have students in multiple grade levels, grandparents are welcome to come eat breakfast on either morning with all of their grandchildren.

DHES Parents, In 2022, the South Carolina General Assembly unanimously passed S.1103, otherwise known as the South Carolina Child ID law. As a result, Abbeville County School District has been given at-home child ID kits that will be coming home with each student this week. These are inkless, at-home kits, stored by parents and guardians that never enter a database. This kit should take less than 2 minutes to complete and is designated to be stored solely by you as a parent or guardian in a cool, dry, and safe place at home. These kits are to be STORED AT HOME and should only be given to law enforcement in case of an emergency.

Good Morning to our DHE Families~ Thank you all for a great start to the school year! It has been exciting to see our Diamond Hill Elementary students back in school and watching our students SHINE! Below are a few reminders about procedures during morning drop-off and afternoon pick up. Our goal is to keep everyone as safe and to move lines efficiently as possible. We appreciate your patience and cooperation! In the mornings, please stay in your vehicle as you drop your child off in the car or bus loop. You may park and walk younger students (K-2) to the door, but please do not enter the building unless you have a need to visit the front office. School issued tags are required to pick up ALL students. Keep the car rider tag visible until your child has been loaded into the vehicle. School personnel (both calling students and loading students) during dismissal need to see the car rider tag. In the car loop, please form two lines up to the merge sign. We understand that the curve in the car loop is a tight fit for many vehicles. Use your judgment in the curve, but then continue forming two lines between the curve and the road. This helps to move vehicles out of Lake Secession Road. If you do not have a tag, please stop by the front office (prior to dismissal) to get a car tag. You can also call the school to have a tag sent home with your child. Students can be issued up to 3 tags. There is a charge for additional tags. **If you need to exit your vehicle (morning or afternoon), then you need to park.** Please share this information with those that drop off and pick up your child. Thank you for your help in making “Back to School” such a great time of the year! We will be sharing information about Open House later today. Thank you!
Thank you all for your patience and support as we all adjust to a few changes with our morning drop off, dismissal, car rider pick up, and daily procedures/rules. All changes are to ensure that we keep everyone SAFE. This is our top priority! We appreciate your patience and words of encouragement. Thank you for a great first week. It has been a joy to have our children back in the building! ❤️
After assessing our drop off and pick up procedures, we find it necessary to ask all drivers to stay in their vehicles during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Porch pickup will no longer be allowed. In the afternoon, please display your school issued tag on the dash, visor, or window and leave visible until your child has loaded the vehicle. Otherwise, you may be asked to park and come inside to get your child. The second driveway (the bus rider loop) is open for car riders to be picked up until 3:00 or until buses are visible. Drivers may continue to use the car rider side after 3:00. Allow your child to load on the side closest to the sidewalk rather than walking out into the driveway. If you need to buckle up your child , please pull up and over to a parking space so the line can continue to move. If you would like to shorten your wait time in the pickup line, plan to pick up your child at 3:00 when the line is much shorter. If you do not have a car tag, these will be distributed each afternoon this week before dismissal begins. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we want to ensure safety for all!
Due to hazardous road conditions in parts of the county, Abbeville County School District will operate an eLearning platform for Tuesday, January 18.
