COVID-19 School Updates

SA Family,

 I hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we transition to a new form of education for the next 10 days.  Below you will find information to guide you through the “elearning” days.  I hope this information will ease your concerns and give you sources of information to make this adjustment easier.  If at any time you have concerns, don’t know what to do, or need assistance, please reach out to me or any teacher.  We will be monitoring email daily and will be happy to help.  Feel free to call the school at 843-349-4117 if needed.

Horry County Schools has developed a plan for eLearning days to provide students with assignments for lost instructional time due to school closures. This plan allows students to complete standards-based assignments from home while school is not in session. While we cannot replace the value of the teacher student interaction in the classroom we are working to provide resources and activities that will help students remain engaged in learning while schools are closed.

 Assignments for students in grades 9-12 for the first 10 days of closure will be communicated by teachers via email, virtual classroom (i.e., Google Classroom, AP Classroom, etc.), and/or hard copy. Assignments made during this period will count in the lowest weighted category.

Students are expected to complete and submit assignments daily via virtual classrooms or upon their return to school. Teachers will be available via email during regular work day hours on eLearning days to respond to questions, provide feedback, and clarification regarding assignments.   Students having HCS computer issues my contact the HCS Technology Help Desk at 843-488-6825.
