The School District of Pickens County will have a Digital Learning Day for eLearning on Friday, October 30 due to unsafe travel conditions and power outages.


Pickens County Emergency Management informed the school district that roads will not be clear for safe travel by tomorrow morning.  Also, a few of our schools and a significant number of our families are without power in our county.


Assignments for eLearning on Friday, October 30 will be due on or before Tuesday, November 10.  Students in Pickens County Virtual Academy (PCVA) will use tomorrow as a Flex Friday to catch-up with any work due this week.


We know that many areas in Pickens County are still without power which includes students and teachers. Teachers will accommodate students who are without power on Friday.
