KCSD announces Tuesday, January 9 is an e-Learning Day

All Kershaw County School District schools will shift to e-learning on Tuesday, January 9, as potentially severe weather is predicted in our area. All school buildings will be closed. 

All afterschool activities and sports are also canceled for Tuesday, Jan 9.

The National Weather Service predicts strong wind gusts in excess of 40 mph, possible severe weather, and unpredictable weather conditions, which could be dangerous for the operation of our school buses. The South Carolina State Department of Education advises against school buses operating during sustained wind speeds above 30 mph or when wind gusts are above 40 mph.

Teachers will post assignments in Canvas (or provide paper packets). Specific instructions will be communicated to students and parents from teachers and schools.

Teachers will be working remotely on Tuesday, and will be available for student questions during their virtual office hours:

Elementary Schools: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Middle and High Schools: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

We realize that power outages are possible, so students will have five school days to complete all assignments to be counted present. 

Technology staff will be answering technology-related issues via email at

As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
