No School Feb. 4
The School District of Pickens County (SDPC) will open on a two-hour delay on Thursday, January 20, 2022, due to the continued danger of ice on shaded areas and on secondary roads. The two-hour delay gives additional time for ice to melt off the roads and will improve visibility for drivers. -- Morning 3K and 4K classes are canceled. PM classes operate on a normal schedule. -- No Buses on Icy Roads -- High school students (including Career Center) should check their Schoology messages for adjusted class times and bell schedules.

It is essential for our schools to accurately keep track of students who are having COVID like symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. To make the process smoother, we are shifting to a process that will speed up record keeping. In addition, this process will allow the school to communicate more effectively and accurately. For any day of school, please remember: 1. Students who have symptoms of COVID-19 must stay home. 2. If students have been tested for COVID-19 due to symptoms, they must stay home until cleared by the school nurse. 3. Students in the household of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 must stay home until cleared by the school nurse. 4. Students who have been a close contact to someone who tested positive must stay home until cleared by the school nurse. Please use the link below to enter your child’s information for any COVID-19 situation. https://bit.ly/3z5YJw0 or use the QR Code below. We understand that some families may not have access to technology. If you need help entering your child’s information, contact the school and they will assist. Thank you for your help as we work to keep our schools and community safe.
