Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases associated with our school and the number of students quarantined as close contacts, our school will transition to virtual instruction, beginning tomorrow, Thursday, September 2, for the next two weeks. Plans are to return to in-person on Thursday, September 16.
Charleston County School District staff will do extensive, additional cleaning of our building, including 100% disinfection fogging tonight, which will allow our staff members to teach remotely from their classrooms beginning tomorrow.
While we know this will be challenging for our school community, we are making this adjustment to ensure student/staff safety and to minimize the spread of COVID-19 at Chicora among students and staff. The temporary move to virtual instruction will allow us to continue providing quality instruction for students in a safe environment. Given our discussions and review of data with medical professionals, please know this is the best option for our students at this time.
You will receive an email tomorrow morning by 8:00 from your child’s teacher regarding assignments and how to access the virtual classroom. Virtual instruction will not begin until after 11:00 am tomorrow, providing families and teachers a few hours to regroup.
If you have additional questions over the next two weeks, please do not hesitate to contact our office or me.
Thank you for your support during this time, and for your commitment to Chicora Elementary School.
