  • District employees will have the opportunity to receive COVID-19 vaccinations through clinics hosted at Colleton County High School on March 31 and April 28.
  • Over six-thousand desk barriers, many of which were delivered to Colleton County schools on October 20, have been placed in all of our school facilities and will continue to be used.
  • Schools and buses will be cleaned daily, and comprehensively disinfected once per week.
  • Anyone visiting district property will be required to wear a mask, and all students and staff will be expected to wear a mask throughout the instructional day.
  • Students will undergo temperature checks upon entering district properties.
  • Social distancing will be enforced on district properties at all times. All schools will follow our COVID-19 Case Protocols.
