And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you: South Carolina schools are closed August 21 because of the Solar Eclipse.
FOR CHATHAM COUNTY:
Beginning with the 2017-18 School Year, routes for school bus transportation will no longer be delivered via printed media insert. The primary way for our families to receive school bus route times and locations will now be through the district’s website because our daily work to adjust route times in the first few weeks of school makes a printed copy out of date after the first day.
All routes are expected to be available starting July 25th. Just go to the district’s website at sccpss.com or visit www.bus4students.com – parents should plan to check back frequently during the first few weeks of school as adjustments are made.
