Due to recent inclement weather, Friday will be a regular school day for Kershaw County School District (KCSD) students. The 2013-14 KCSD calendar approved in December of 2012 originally indicated that Friday would be a professional development day for teachers unless needed as an inclement weather make up day.

“We have missed five school days due to the two recent winter storms,” KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan said. “Using (Friday) as a regular school day will allow us to gain one of those days back, which is especially critical with upcoming state testing.”

Morgan said the district is waiting for the outcome of any legislation that may be passed by the General Assembly in terms of forgiving lost time due to the winter storms before any other decisions are made. 

“We hope to know something soon in terms of possible forgiveness for these days from the state. As soon as we have that information and make a determination, we will let parents know,” Morgan said.

Morgan also said that he does not foresee changing any of the time off for Spring break.

“Many families have already made travel plans that involve purchasing tickets that cannot be refunded,” he said. “I will not recommend altering spring break.”
