🚨Reminder🚨: There will be no school: Friday, February 4, 2022 Friday, February 18, 2022 Monday, February 21, 2022 These days are planned breaks on the 2021-2022 calendar. (Note: The free COVID-19 testing center for SDPC will be closed on these dates)
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.
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens tonight following the snow, sleet, freezing rain from yesterday. Noticeable ice and black ice on roads throughout the county is a serious concern tomorrow morning. We will make a decision regarding school for Wednesday (January 19, 2022) on Tuesday evening.
