DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Darlington County School District announced Friday that February 12 will be a regular school day for students to make up the day district schools missed because of the flooding.

February 12, which was originally set aside for parent-teacher conferences, is the first of three inclement weather days listed on the board-approved 2015-2016 school district calendar, according to a news release from the DCSD.

The missed school day also caused the end of the quarter and the report card release dates to be pushed forward one day.

The parent-teacher conferences scheduled for Thursday, February 11, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. will continue as planned.

Additional times for parent-teacher conferences will be offered by schools from February 15 through February 18; each school will provide the new parent-teacher conference times to the parents of their students.

The release states South Carolina state law requires school districts make up the first three days of school missed due to inclement weather. Even though Governor Haley declared a state of emergency during the floods, her declaration does not have any bearing on the requirement for school districts to make up missed days. A state of emergency declaration permits the governor and state agencies to mobilize resources and reassign employees as needed.
