November 4, 2021

Early DismissalKershaw County School District (KCSD) students will be released early from school on Nov. 23, Dec. 16 and Dec. 17. Elementary school students will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m., middle school students at 11:45 a.m. and high school students at noon.

"The implementation of Canvas, our new learning management system, has meant that our teachers and administrators have had to spend extra time to make this transition possible," said KCSD Superintendent Shane Robbins, "These early dismissal days will allow teachers to have additional time to finalize grades and other items related to our Canvas transition."

Robbins said that Friday, Dec. 17 had already been designated as a half-day for students on the 2021-22 KCSD calendar.

KCSD schools and offices will be closed for Thanksgiving Break Nov. 24-26 and Winter Break Dec. 20-31. Jan. 3 and 4 are Records Days for staff, and students will return to class on Jan. 5.

The complete 2021-22 KCSD calendar is available on the district's website.
