South Carolina closes schools through April

News

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina is closing schools through April, Governor Henry McMaster announced on Tuesday.

Schools were initially set to stay closed through March.

“At this time, students, parents, and families should plan for South Carolina’s schools to remain closed through the month of April. Our dedicated teachers and school administrators have done a tremendous job in making it possible for our students to learn at home.

We understand that the prospect of schools remaining closed for an extended period of time places stress and strain on parents and children. Rest assured, if there is any way to safely open our schools earlier, we will do that, but schools must remain closed to protect the health and safety of South Carolinians.”
