SCCPSS officials continue to monitor the track of Hurricane Ian in consultation with the Chatham Emergency Management Agency and information from the National Weather Service. The current track of the storm is expected to bring dangerous weather conditions to our area including high winds on Thursday afternoon that will create dangerous conditions for the operation of school buses on our roads and highways and unsafe conditions for our walking students. Weather conditions will worsen on Friday with heavy rains, stronger sustained winds, and flooding.
Due to the approach of the storm and the anticipated detrimental effects across the county, the decision has been made to shift to virtual learning on Thursday and Friday by using our on-line learning platforms including ItsLearning, Microsoft Teams, and/or Google Classroom. Students will not report to school on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30. Remote learning will take place on these days as conditions allow. While all buildings and District facilities will be closed for in-person activities, certain staff who are designated by their immediate supervisor will be required to report to work during this closure.
REMOTE LEARNING: Instructions for remote learning will be provided by your child's school/teacher. ItsLearning, Microsoft Teams, and/or Google Classroom will have
all the information parents and students need to complete their assignments. Teachers will be available online as conditions allow.
The School District will maintain regular contact with the Chatham Emergency Management Agency to monitor storm impacts. Facility and operational assessments will be made throughout the weekend to ensure the safety of all buildings. Normal school operations are expected to resume Monday morning, October 3. Should this change in any way, official information will be communicated through the District's call notification system, email, district website, and social media channels on Facebook and Twitter. Parents and Staff should monitor our official communication channels for additional information.
Once again, students will not report to school on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30 due to the anticipated impacts associated with Hurricane Ian.
All buildings and District facilities will be closed for in-person activities. Please make sure to check our website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates.
