GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — The Georgetown County School District announced that schools will re-open for students on Wednesday, Sept. 19, after closing due to Florence.
Teachers are asked to report to work Tuesday, weather permitting.
School districts in the Lowcountry resumed classes on Monday after Florence moved out of the area, but Georgetown County saw significant rainfall Sunday evening, prompting school closure for two additional days, according to the district.
"Significant rainfall on Sunday evening caused additional flooding, damage to schools, unsafe road conditions, and ongoing flash flood advisories, in addition to displacing many more students and staff members," the district posted on its Facebook page. "Due to these conditions, Georgetown County School District will remain closed for students on Tuesday."
Schools will reopen on Wednesday, September 19 on regular schedules, according to the district.
The meeting of the Georgetown County School District Board of Trustees, scheduled for Tuesday evening was also cancelled.
