Update for March 16, 2020

Dear Kershaw County School District Families:

I will try to keep today’s update brief; however, as we navigate through this process with our schools being closed, I am certain more and more questions will arise.  I want to start with a quote that I feel is appropriate during this crazy time:

The measure of wisdom,

Is how calm you are,

When facing any given situation!

-Naval Ravikant

Many of your questions can be answered if you go to our homepage at www.kcsdschools.net  There you will find a pop up with the latest information.  In the near future, we will share a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page with the community.  We currently are doing the same with our employees. This will allow us to be clear and consistent with our messaging.  At 3:00 p.m., I will participate in a press conference with Senator Sheheen and County Administrator Vic Carpenter. Our goal is to reassure the community that we are working as fast and efficiently (together) as we possibly can.

Today we began serving breakfast at specified locations.  I have asked our food service director to put a plan together that would allow us to use our buses and bus routes to get meals to the students at their bus stops and/or homes.

I know there are many questions and quite honestly many unknowns.  However, I want to assure you that we will get through this together.  

As it stands today at 2:00 p.m., our schools are mandated to be closed until March 31st.  I suspect that date will change, but that is the date we are working on at this moment. Stay resilient, stay healthy, and stay calm.
