CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County School District students and staff will resume classes on Monday, Jan. 4 following winter break, according to district officials.

“Our hope is that your families were safe during the holidays, and we will do our best to keep schools, students, and staff safe as we return,” CCSD officials said on Friday.

According to the district, they will monitor very closely the COVID-19 rates in order to identify any trends or issues that would require a change in their protocols or a change in their school schedules.

“Anyone who is symptomatic or has been exposed to COVID-19 should be kept at home,” district officials said. “Please be aware that our students’ and staff’s health is our top priority, and we will inform you of any changes to school operations to allow appropriate planning time for your family.”

The district’s COVID-19 protocols can be found on their website.

“If your children normally attend school in person but you choose to keep them home as a precautionary measure this week, they will not be added to an online class,” CCSD officials said. “However, if you notify your child’s teacher in writing and arrange for missed assignments to be submitted in a timely manner, the absence will be excused.”
