Monitoring Hurricane Matthew

Monitoring Hurricane Matthew
Posted on 10/04/2016

As South Carolina prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Matthew, the School District of Pickens County is closely monitoring the situation to ensure the safety of our students and smooth operation of our schools.

Pickens County schools are set to remain OPEN, and we do not anticipate being directly in the path of the storm. However, as thousands of residents evacuate the coastal areas of the state, keep in mind that the evacuation could create traffic issues throughout the Upstate on Thursday and Friday. Please be prepared for high traffic as you plan your commute to and from schools this week.

Weather situations are always subject to change, and we will continue to watch and provided any necessary updates as Matthew passes through South Carolina.
