The South Carolina Highway Patrol, local law enforcement and Emergency Management anticipate a higher than normal volume of traffic and potential road closures on October 5th. Traffic will increase because of the Luke Bryan concert in the Sweetwater Community. The district based its decision to close schools on South Carolina Highway Patrol’s traffic management plan. The concert creates the likelihood that the safe travel of students, parents, faculty and staff will be impacted throughout the school day.  Safety remains Edgefield County School District’s top priority.
The District will follow its approved 2018-19 Academic Calendar and make up this day by moving Friday, December 14th from a half-day to a whole day of school.  Monday, December 17, 2018 will become a half day as opposed to a student holiday.  Winter Break will begin on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.   Edgefield County School District is appreciative of everyone’s support and understanding in regards to this matter.
