    Now that all elementary and middle schools provide 5-day, face-to-face instruction, HCS is phasing the return to 5-day, face-to-face instruction in our high schools and program schools. Staff and parents will receive at the minimum a 5-day calendar notice of this change. The decision for brick-and-mortar schools to return to 5 days of face-to-face instruction does not affect the K-12 HCS Virtual Program. If students are currently enrolled in the K-12 HCS Virtual Program, this message does not impact them.

    Beginning on Thursday, April 1, the following high schools will return to 5-day, face-to-face instruction: 

    • Myrtle Beach High School
    • St. James High School

    Our goal for completion of plexiglass installation for all high schools is the end of March. Like many school districts in South Carolina, HCS has been working expeditiously to install plexiglass in our schools. As per South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) recommendations, this will allow student spacing of three feet apart. This additional mitigation effort will allow us to safely bring more students back into the classroom and increase our face-to-face instruction from 2 days per week to 5 days per week. While plexiglass will reduce social distancing requirements in the classroom from six to three feet, masks/face coverings will be required in all school areas.
