Welcome to Manchester Elementary

Joan TyeManchester Families,

If you are choosing for your child to stay virtual for the semester, please complete and return the Sumter School District’s Virtual Learning Request form by Friday, October 8.

By choosing Virtual Learning, you are requesting to have your child remain home and continue with virtual classes for the remainder of the 1st semester and not attend any face to face classes.
There are several ways to return the form. You may email the form back to your child’s teacher, you may mail the form back to the school, or you may drop the completed form off to the main office at Manchester.


Please see the school and district’s websites for breakfast and lunch distribution information during virtual learning. Breakfast and lunch meals are free for all students.
