SUPERINTENDENT’S WEEKLY COVID UPDATE - December 2, 2020

2 December 2020

SUPERINTENDENT’S WEEKLY COVID UPDATE

Dorchester County Public Schools will remain at its present status next week, December 7 through December 11, 2020. Those small groups now in school buildings, including DCTC students, some special needs students, students with poor internet connectivity, children of DCPS staff, and identified struggling learners, will continue attending in-person but moving to Phase 1.5 will not take place at this time.

Secondary Athletics scheduled to begin next week will NOT be in person and can only take place virtually until Dorchester County Public Schools at least reaches Phase 1.5 of its re-opening plan. This decision is due to a rise in the county’s testing positivity rate and was made in conjunction with Dorchester County Health Officer Roger Harrell.
