  • First Day of School - September 8th

    Posted by Dawn Meehan on 8/31/2020

    A message from Dr. Rick Maxey,


    Today, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control released the highly anticipated COVID-19 statistics for Horry County. This weekly disease activity report currently rates Horry County at a medium spread level. This means that Horry County Schools will begin the first day of school on September 8, 2020, with the Hybrid Instructional Model.  Student schedules will be available in PowerSchool on Wednesday, September 2nd, no later than 5 P.M.  Students enrolled in brick-and-mortar schools will also learn their scheduled groups as well.  **Please Do Not call the school as we have no control over when the schedules will be available. Thank you!**


    Students in Groups A and G will begin in-person instruction on Tuesday, September 8th. 

    Students in Group B will begin in-person instruction on Wednesday, September 9th.

    While students enrolled in the K-12 HCS Virtual School will not be attending the brick-and-mortar schools in person, their schedules will indicate they are in Group E.


    We are excited to welcome our students back both to our school buildings and to our virtual classrooms.

    • Only the student and one parent/guardian allowed in building and both must be wearing masks covering mouth and nose.
    • Registration must be completed for Socastee High -- if you are attending HCS Virtual School, signing up for Virtual School is not registering.  Parents must sign into the Parent Portal and register their student(s) each year for school.
    • Registration fees and Technology fees are to be paid.  If you have paid through MyPaymentsPlus, please bring a copy of your receipt with you.
    • The technology agreement is to be signed by both the parent and the student.

    * Course offerings may be limited.

    As we begin to close the 2019-20 school year, we would like to notify parents and students that no new assignments will be issued for high school underclassmen as of May 15, 2020.  Starting Monday, May 18, 2020, and through the remainder of the school year, students may continue completing and submitting assignments and receive additional support and assistance from their teachers as needed.  Services and support for students with special needs and support for English Learner students will continue.  We will make arrangements for students to turn in devices, textbooks, and other school-owned items, as well as to pick up personal items, awards, yearbooks, etc. and announce those dates and times shortly.  The last day of school for students is June 3.  As always, please contact Mr. Rich at jrich@horrycountyschools.net or call the school and leave a message if you have any questions.  Thank you!
