School Closings Due to Inclement Weather

School Closings Due to Inclement Weather
Posted on 09/28/2022

Greetings Families,

After Superintendent's consultation with Emergency Preparedness, Colleton County School

District will transition temporarily to e-learning on Thursday, September 29, 2022 and Friday, September 30, 2022 due to the forecast for inclement weather later this week related to

Hurricane Ian. All after school activities are cancelled for Thursday. Our previously scheduled Community Meeting for Thursday, September 29, 2022 has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date. School buildings and District Administrative Offices will be closed beginning Thursday, September 29, 2022 and remain closed on Friday, September 30, 2022. Our estimated reopening will be Monday, October 3, 2022.

In an effort to ensure that our students are receiving quality standards based instructional activities while they are out of school, schools have prepared instructional packets for students to complete. Instructional packets will be sent home with students on Wednesday, September 28, 2022. It is very important for students to complete the instructional packets while at home, following all instructions given by their teacher. Middle and High School student assignments can be found in the Google Classroom as well. To allow teachers the ability to grade the work in a timely manner for the 1st quarter, student work assigned while out of school due to the storm will need to be turned in by or before Friday, October 7, 2022.

The Superintendent along with our Safety and Security Team will continue to monitor the effects of Hurricane Ian and make additional decisions based on the guidance from Colleton County Emergency Preparedness and the National Weather Service. Additional information will be available on all of our media outlets and the district's website.

It is the goal of the Colleton County School District to make decisions that will ensure the safety of our students, staff and community. Everyone is encouraged to make informed decisions and stay safe. Thank you for your continued support.
