• School Closings/Delays: After consulting with EMA and the County Commissioners Office regarding the weather conditions, our Laurens County Schools will be closed 2/19/2020. Continued rain deems the roads hazardous for our buses to travel. Employees are to report to work from 9am-3pm. If a staff member’s road conditions are unsafe or other extenuating circumstances arise, please consult with your principal/building supervisors.

Welcome to my class.  My name is Mrs. Rachel Thigpen.  I have 23 years teaching experience and have teaching experience in kindergarten, first, as well as second grade.  I have a bachelor's degree, master's degree, as well as a specialist degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also Gifted Certified and teach the Advanced Placement class here at Northwest Laurens Elementary.  I am married to John Victor Thigpen and have two beautiful children. My oldest child is Miranda Thigpen, a senior at West Laurens High.  My youngest child is Matthew Thigpen, an 8th grade student at West Laurens Middle School.  It is a pleasure to have your child in my classroom, and I look forward to a wonderful year.
