With student safety as the highest priority, all Berkeley County School District schools and before-school programs will operate according to a three-hour delay on Tuesday, January 7 due to forecasts of extremely cold weather.
Parents can find the three-hour delay schedule for their children's schools on the district's website at http://www.berkeley.k12.sc.us/files/filesystem/Bell%20Schedule%202013-2014%202.pdf. At this time, there no expected cancellations of the district's after-school child care or after-school programming tomorrow afternoon.
The district asks that parents please dress their children in layers and in warm clothing. During times of severe weather, the district works very closely with its partners including Berkeley County Emergency Preparedness to make decisions related to school dismissals, delays, closures, and bussing.
Again, all Berkeley County School District schools and before-school programs will operate on a three-hour delay tomorrow, January 7. Please continue to monitor the website at BCSDSchools.net, the district's Facebook page, through the media, or through additional call-out messages for any other possible scheduling changes.
