CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — Charleston County School District schools will remain closed for students on Monday, October 10.
Officials say the decision was made for several reasons:
- Hundreds of thousands of people (including many of our employees) that evacuated our area will be trying to return on Sunday or Monday;
- Current storm projections lead us to believe there may be water damage in some of our schools; and
- Several of our schools are being used as shelters. Deep cleaning will be required for these facilities, and most likely, our hard-working staff will not be able to finish those tasks until sometime on Monday.
A decision has not been made at this time regarding staff schedules for Monday.
