SDPC Schools Closed

This is the image for the news article titled SDPC Schools ClosedThis afternoon, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster declared that all schools in the state will remain closed through March 31 to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Over the past week, the School District of Pickens County has been preparing for the possibility of closure. Through the coming weeks, our first goal is to support families, students, and staff who are medically or economically impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. Our second goal will be to continue to find ways to do what we can, how we can, to educate students as much as we can.

On Friday, SDPC presented our plan for Digital Learning in the event of long-term closure to the South Carolina Department of Education. The plan was approved, and can be viewed by clicking here.

We are fortunate that SDPC students were already scheduled to be out of school for the next two days. Tomorrow and Tuesday, school and district leadership will continue to refine our plans for supporting students and families. Our top priorities include:

• Food service for students in need
• Access to student medication that may be stored at schools
• Educational resources and activities for families
• Continued online instruction

SDPC will follow up in the coming days with more detailed information on these topics, and teachers will follow up with you about specific plans for their classes.
