Governor closes Kershaw County School District for two weeks

March 13, 2020

Today SC Governor Henry McMaster closed all schools in the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) for two weeks. The closure also includes all school-related activities.

KCSD officials said that students will participate in eLearning activities starting Monday. KCSD principals and teachers will be in touch with students to provide additional details on student lessons.

The school district has 1:1 capability in grades K-12 and is a pilot district approved by the Education Oversight Committee to use eLearning for inclement weather days.

"We will do everything to support both our staff and students during this unprecedented time,” said KCSD Superintendent Shane Robbins. “I have great confidence in the resilience of our schools and community to persevere through this challenge. There will be more information to follow in the days ahead, and we will communicate with our community as quickly and efficiently as we can. I understand the challenge this creates for some families, and I appreciate their cooperation and patience as we work through this together."
