Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day (eLearning Day #2) for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person.
Digital Learning Days allow students to make up days missed to inclement weather or other emergencies by completing a set of assignments within 5 school days (Jan. 26). For students in grades K5-12, most or all of these assignments can be completed on the student's school-issued Chromebook. Students in earlier grades may also be given a list of traditional assignments to complete within five days. Your child's teacher will communicate the details of the assignments for your child's class. Students who do not complete their assignments will be counted as absent for the day.
While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.
