An Open Letter to the Dorchester County Public Schools Community

Good afternoon Dorchester County Public Schools Community,

We are now just over a year into this pandemic. DCPS continues to appreciate everyone’s support and patience as we have shifted to a hybrid model of instruction. We continue to follow recommendations and guidance from the Dorchester County Health Department.

Our goal is to continue to bring students into our buildings as safely as possible. Individual schools are constantly reviewing and reassessing the situation regarding numbers of students in the building and the all-important safety protocols. All schools make decisions based on square footage and Dorchester County Health Department guidance. When we can safely bring more students in, we will do so.

As you may have heard, the governor has lifted the travel advisory in regard to out of state travel. While the restrictions have been lifted, we strongly encourage our families and staff to continue health and safety precautions that have kept our students and staff safe.

For next week, DCPS will stay the course with our present status of our re-opening plan.

Stay safe and healthy,

W. David Bromwell

Superintendent

Dorchester County Public Schools
