The School District of Pickens County (SDPC) will open on a two-hour delay on Thursday, January 20, 2022, due to the continued danger of ice on shaded areas and on secondary roads. The two-hour delay gives additional time for ice to melt off the roads and will improve visibility for drivers. -- Morning 3K and 4K classes are canceled. PM classes operate on a normal schedule. -- No Buses on Icy Roads -- High school students (including Career Center) should check their Schoology messages for adjusted class times and bell schedules.
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.

Just a reminder that we will dismiss at 11:30 tomorrow with 4K and 5K car riders beginning at 11:15. There is no ASC and no afternoon 4K. We will have the last bus routes so students may not leave SME exactly at 11:30. If your student is a bus rider, expect delays. Go Lions!!
We need your help! If you use the playground or kindergarten courtyards after hours, we would appreciate your care of the facilities. Please throw trash away and leave the area as you found it. Thank you!
