SDE Bus Mask Mandate
With rising COVID infection rates statewide, the South Carolina Department of Education will require students in South Carolina to wear masks while on school buses. This goes into effect on Monday, August 30.
All students reporting to the bus without a mask will be offered a mask and the chance to comply with the federal mandate. Students who refuse the first time will be allowed to board the bus and will be given a verbal warning the first time. For subsequent offenses, the district would follow progressive discipline procedures that could result in suspension of bus privileges for up to (30) days, and could further result in loss of bus privileges for the year.
