4K Screening

4K (Pre-K) Screenings for 2018-2019 School Year


The School District of Oconee County will hold 4K (Pre-K) screenings on the following dates:


  • February, 23, 2018

  • April 19, 2018

  • April 20, 2018

  • April 21, 2018

  • April 23, 2018

  • April 24, 2018


Parents should schedule a screening appointment for any child that will be 4 years of age on or before    September 1, 2018.


Screening appointments can be obtained beginning January 22 by calling 864-886-4503.  


The location for all screenings will be Oconee Academy, 177 Razorback Lane, Walhalla, SC 29691.


Parents should be prepared to bring the following items to the child’s screening appointment:


  • Child’s state issued (long form) birth certificate

  • Child’s social security card

  • Child’s Medicaid card or parent/guardian Proof of Income

(If your child does not receive Medicaid, proof of income for both parent(s)/guardian(s) will be required. This includes step-parents if they assume responsibility. Proof of income can be W2 forms, income tax forms, or pay stubs.)

  • Driver’s license or identification card of parent(s)/guardian(s)

  • Proof of residency (a utility bill with parent/guardian’s name and home address or a lease agreement)

  • Child’s immunization form or Religious Exemption Certificate (provided by the Health Department)

  • Legal documentation as it pertains to the child (such as custody, court, safety plans, etc.), if applicable


Due to the district’s limited number of 4K (Pre-K) programs, screening does not ensure a child’s placement in a 4K (Pre-K) program. However, a child cannot be placed in a 4K (Pre-K) program unless he or she is screened.  


Children who meet eligibility requirements can attend 4K free, as long as space is available.  If openings are available after all eligible children have been placed, there may be an option for fee-based students to attend 4K.

Blood Drive for One of Our OWN!

posted Nov 8, 2017, 8:05 AM by Rachel Smith

Keowee Blood Drive
Keowee is hosting a blood drive to help one of our very own! Tammy Garland has been a  fifth grade teacher at Keowee for 14 years. As you all know, at Keowee, we are family and when a family member needs help, we ALL pitch in! Mrs. Garland needs our help. Her husband David has a rare unknown auto-immune disease that was diagnosed when he was five years old. Over the past 22 years he has had to have life saving emergency surgery, chemotherapy, rounds of very strong steroids and LOTS and LOTS of blood. Currently, David is battling Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) which is a disorder that can lead to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding. The bleeding results from unusually low levels of platelets — the cells that help blood clot -- hemolytic anemia which attacks the red blood cells and neutropenia which attacks the white blood cells.  

We will be sending home sheets for parents to sign up for times.  Please return them to your student’s homeroom teacher.  The class with the most participation will receive a pizza party.  We hope you will join us here at Keowee Elementary School to donate life saving blood on Nov. 20th from 11:00 - 4:00.  Thank you for helping one of our own!
