LDHS 2024 Graduation
The SC Ready Writing Field test for grades 3-5, originally scheduled for Monday, May 20, 2024 has been postponed to Tuesday, May 21, 2024. This change is necessary due to a brief anticipated interruption on May 20th that would impact the testing environment. In an effort to comply with test security regulations outlined by the State Department of Education, a date change is the best way to ensure that all students have an opportunity to test without interruption. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.

Dear LCSD 55 Family, Potential Threat to Laurens Middle School Deemed Nonexistent Yesterday evening, authorities were alerted to a potential threat against Laurens Middle School, allegedly discussed by a group of juveniles and overheard by one juvenile who reported it to authorities. Following a thorough investigation, no evidence supporting these claims was found during a search of the residence of the alleged juvenile who was said to have made the threat. However, in the early hours of the morning at around 2:30 AM, the FBI notified the LPD of a fake social media account circulating a bomb threat targeting Laurens Middle School. Rapid coordination between uniform patrol officers, school resource officers (SRO’s), and command staff, facilitated by the invaluable assistance of the FBI, swiftly led to the apprehension of the perpetrator. The individual responsible for the hoax, a juvenile student of Laurens Middle School, has been detained. Their identity remains anonymous due to their status as a minor. They have confessed to fabricating the threat(s), affirming that there is no genuine danger to the school, its students, or the wider community. To ensure utmost safety, the Laurens Police Department, in collaboration with Laurens County School District 55 Administration and Laurens Middle School staff, conducted a thorough search of Laurens Middle School this morning. The investigation concluded that there are no present threats to the school or its occupants. In light of this incident, heightened security measures have been implemented across the district to reassure students, parents, and staff of their safety and well-being. School will commence at normal time without any deviation. This notification underscores our commitment to transparency and our unwavering dedication to addressing and neutralizing potential threats swiftly and effectively. The juvenile perpetrator has been removed from the school and will face charges through the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice, where he/she is currently being housed. Laurens County School District 55 would like to thank the Laurens Police Department for their coordinated efforts and swift response to ensure the safety of our children, staff, and schools. For further inquiries, please contact Captain Heath Copeland of the Laurens Police Department or Jody Penland with Laurens County School District 55. Sincerely, LCSD 55

We are going to move the House Barbeque to the Spring time (maybe late March). The purpose of the event is to strengthen our Connecting with Every Student process as well as to provide a platform to engage parents. Currently, there are several unforeseen issues that impede our ability to move forward in a manner that accomplishes both goals.
