CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Three Charleston County schools announced plans Wednesday to switch to virtual-only instruction as the number of COVID-19 cases and quarantined students increase.

Murray-LaSaine Montessori School, Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary School, and Chicora Elementary School will transition to virtual instruction beginning Thursday for the next two weeks.

The change is because of the number of positive COVID-19 cases associated with the school and the number of students quarantined as close contacts, according to messages from both schools.

Plans are to return to in-person learning on Sept. 16, the district said.

The schools will undergo extensive, additional cleaning, including 100% disinfection fogging.

Three other CCSD schools are currently on virtual-only instruction.

The Early College High School planned to return to in-person instruction on Sept. 10. Both Charles Pinckney and Sullivan’s Island Elementary Schools went to virtual instruction as of Tuesday and expect to return to in-person instruction on Sept. 15.
