March is Open Enrollment month for Anderson School District Four families. Parents who desire to enroll their child(ren) in an elementary school outside of their attendance zone may exercise this option by submitting an application request between March 1 – 31, 2017. Decisions regarding Open Enrollment requests will be based on school enrollment, the student’s attendance record at current school, and the student’s discipline record at the current school. Parents opting for open enrollment will be responsible for providing transportation.

Notification of school assignments for all open enrollment requests for the 2017-18 school year will be made by June 30, 2017.

Applications are available at the District Administration Office at 315 East Queen Street in Pendleton, and at each elementary school. All applications must be returned to the District Administration Office by Friday, March 31, 2017.

A student who has previously been granted Open Enrollment must re-apply annually. A separate request must be completed annually for each student in the family.

Questions should be directed to Dr. Kim Clardy (864-403-2000) or Mrs. Edna Walker (864-403-2000).

Update from Anderson 4 (Oct 1, 3:26pm)

5 months ago

Anderson School District 4 and the staff and students at Townville Elementary mourn the loss of 6-year-old Jacob Hall.  Jacob is an innocent victim of an unexplainable act of violence that occurred while he was on his way to the school playground Wednesday afternoon.  Jacob was a delightful child who was full of joy and beloved by his family, friends and all at Townville Elementary School. Despite a strong fight these past few days, his life was cut short by this tragedy that cannot be explained or easily understood. Jacob will not be forgotten. We grieve for his parents and his family. We will wrap our arms around his teacher, his friends and his classmates.  

We will continue to provide love and support to all in our schools and community as we work together to get through this tragic event.  Townville, you are not alone.   It is our hope that we all come together in a state of grace and peace as we support one another in the coming days and weeks.  We need each other; we cannot get through this alone. 

 We ask all to join us in praying for and supporting Jacob’s family and the others injured in the shooting.
