The district released the following statement Tuesday night. 

CCSD and Durham School Services have been evaluating bus routes to determine what areas may be unreachable due to flooding. If the roads are open to the public, we will make every attempt to pick up students. Law enforcement and SCDOT authorities make the decisions on whether to close roads.

The District is asking that parents make alternative arrangements for student transportation in the event that a bus cannot reach certain stops. Buses are not permitted to travel down dirt roads at this time. Also, Durham School Services is in the process of contacting the parents of all special needs students who are impacted by route cancellations and delays.

We ask that parents use their best judgement and keep their students home if they do not believe it is safe to travel. Absences will be excused by their individual principals.
