Gov. Henry McMaster gives updates on the state’s preparedness for COVID-19 at the state emergency operation center on March 15, 2020.

Governor Henry McMaster and State Superintendent Molly Spearman released a joint statement on Tuesday March 24th stating that schools across the state will remain closed through the month of April.

“At this time, students, parents, and families should plan for South Carolina’s schools to remain closed through the month of April. Our dedicated teachers and school administrators have done a tremendous job in making it possible for our students to learn at home. We understand that the prospect of schools remaining closed for an extended period of time places stress and strain on parents and children. Rest assured, if there is any way to safely open our schools earlier, we will do that, but schools must remain closed to protect the health and safety of South Carolinians.”

In the upcoming days DD2 will provide families with information in regards to additional learning plans and resources that will be available for students.

The district will continue to offer meals at the seven feeding locations throughout the district during the closures.
