Horry County Schools 

HCS Update for Wednesday September 19th, 2018. ••••HCS will remain closed for the remain closed through Friday, September 21, 2018. ••••

HCS Update 09.17.18
‪3:00 p.m.‬ HCS Parents and Staff,
Horry County Schools will be closed ‪Tuesday, September 18‬, and ‪Wednesday, September 19‬, due to flooding that has already occurred and record flooding that is predicted for the Waccamaw River and the Little Pee Dee River. These local rivers are expected to reach historic flood levels over the next several days and could impact many areas in our county including Socastee, Bucksport, Conway, Aynor, Loris, Longs, Green Sea Floyds, Galivants Ferry, etc. The delay in school openings will give staff a better understanding of the flood models and what the future impacts could be to our roadways later in the week. The delay in school openings will also allow more time for our families and staff who evacuated to other areas to return home as traffic conditions re-opening of our schools.
Again, we are extremely mindful that the re-opening of schools is very important to parents and students, but safety must come first. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this difficult time, and we are making the best decisions we can based upon collaborative information provided by local, state, and federal authorities.
We encourage our parents, students, and staff to stay safe and continue to follow the instructions provided by local emergency management officials. With record amounts of rainfall, residents should be aware that flash flood conditions exist. People should avoid washed out bridges and roads. Do not move or drive around barricades. Follow directions issued by local public safety officials.
Our thoughts and well-wishes remain with our local governments and municipalities, first responders, public service personnel, utility works, non-profit relief personnel, and the many thousands who continue to provide support to our community.
Please continue to follow us on our website, Facebook, and Twitter, as we will post an update ‪on Wednesday, September 19‬, by ‪2 p.m.‬ regarding the status of schools for the remainder of the week.

Hurricane Florence Update for HCS as of Saturday September 15th, 2018 at 3pm

Horry County Schools will operate on a normal schedule on Monday, September 10. The District will continue to monitor weather conditions and await formal direction from the Governor’s Office should an evacuation order be given in the next few days.

Again, HCS is mindful that a change in a school schedule creates changes in schedules for all of our families, and we are committed to providing as much notice as possible. Any change to our school schedule will be communicated via the District’s website, HCS and local news stations, HCS App, email and telephone notification systems, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Horry County School officials continue to monitor forecasts and the track of Hurricane Florence. The District has been communicating with local and state officials and will wait to see if Governor McMaster orders evacuations before making any closing decisions. HCS is mindful that a change in a school schedule creates changes in schedules for all of our families, and we are committed to providing as much notice as possible. When a mandatory evacuation order is given, 12 Horry County schools could open as shelters and are operational within four hours of the order. A listing of shelters can be found at https://www.horrycounty.org/Departments/Emergency-Management/Hurricanes/Shelters.

HCS is very excited to share that our very own Cecily Hennigan from Conway High School will be on the Steve Harvey show tomorrow, September 4th. In August, Cecily sang her order at the McDonald's drive thru in Conway. Since then her incredible voice, with rhythmic support from her friends, has allowed her video to go viral. You can catch Cecily perform on Steve's show tomorrow at 3pm. Way to go Cecily!
Check out her viral video:

Did you know that today is National South Carolina Day?
The Palmetto State is recognized on August 31 for her unique landscapes, bold personalities, and long history. In honor of National South Carolina Day and the start of college football season, we thought you would like to see a few smiling faces who are ready for their favorite SC college team to play this weekend.

Newly-designed "Be a Good Sport" banners will soon be on display at each of our middle and high schools in an effort to remind all of us to: Respect the Game ~ Respect Yourself ~ Respect Others.
