CCSD Schools Closed for Students on Monday, October 10, 2016
Charleston, SC — Charleston County School District schools will remain closed for students on Monday, October 10, 2016.
- This decision was made for several reasons:
- Hundreds of thousands of people (including many of our employees) that evacuated our area will be trying to return on Sunday or Monday;
- Current storm projections lead us to believe there may be water damage in some of our schools; and
Several of our schools are being used as shelters. Deep cleaning will be required for these facilities, and most likely, our hard-working staff will not be able to finish those tasks until sometime on Monday.
A decision has not been made at this time regarding staff schedules for Monday.
Please continue to stay safe and follow local law enforcement’s instructions.
