Some CCSD schools closed following damage from Matthew

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — The Charleston County School District will reopen for school, Tuesday, October 11 at the regular start time with the exception of the following locations:

  • West Ashley Head Start
  • E.B. Ellington Elementary
  • Jane Edwards Elementary
  • Minnie Hughes Elementary

E.B. Ellington and West Ashley Head Start should reopen on Wednesday, October 12.

Officials anticipate Minnie Hughes will reopen Thursday, October 13. Jane Edwards will be closed for at least 5-10 days for repairs. During that time, Jane Edwards students will be bused to Minnie Hughes. Bus pickup and drop-off times for Jane Edwards students will remain the same.

Several other schools (Springfield and Montessori Community Schools Campus, Chicora, James Island Middle and High Schools, Deer Park Middle, and Greg Mathis) do not have power at this time; district officials are hopefully power will be restored by Monday night.

We have asked parents who have access to cell phones to download/use the Durham School Services Remind App. This application will notify parents if their child’s bus is delayed by 15 minutes or more.

School and district administrators are aware that a few families are still experiencing hardships as a result of Hurricane Matthew’s impact, and will work with those families on an individual basis.
