Latest school closure and delay information

(WMBF) – Information on the status of area school districts and schools, and their plans for Thursday, can be viewed here.


Florence School District 5 will resume a regular schedule ON Thursday, October 15th.  Students who continue to be affected by road conditions will be contacted by phone for specific bus route instructions.  If you have questions, please contact your child's school for more information.

According to the Georgetown County School District:

For Wednesday through Friday, October 14-16, schools in the Georgetown and Waccamaw attendance areas of Georgetown County School District will operate on a regular schedule. Schools in the Andrews and Carvers Bay attendance areas – which includes Sampit Elementary – will operate on a two-hour delay for students and buses, with employees reporting at their regular times. Parents may drop off their children at the normal time, if necessary. 

Friday, October 23, will be a make-up day for Georgetown County School District. GCSD will operate on a half-day schedule that day for students, and for staff it will be a flex schedule after student dismissal.

Other inclement weather days listed on the board-approved school calendar for 2015-2016 are January 15, 2016 and March 25, 2016. The calendar committee will meet next week to review and confirm these make-up days and schedules for these days and/or any changes or exceptions to these make up times. That information will be released later in October.
