District & Emergency Communications
How do I receive District Communications and Emergency Notifications?
District and emergency communications are delivered to all phone and email addresses noted in our student PowerSchool database. This database updates nightly with new information based on the emergency contact information indicated in PowerSchool.
Update Your Contact Information
In the event you need to edit your personal contact information, you may login to your PowerSchool Parent Portal account and select the Update Contact Information tab from the left side menu at any time or visit your child's school with proper identification. For security reasons, we are unable to change your information over the phone.
The decision to cancel school due to hazardous weather conditions is made by the Superintendent and district officials. This decision is made as quickly as possible based on close coordination with the National Weather Service, Dorchester County Emergency Preparedness Department, SC Highway Patrol, local law enforcement, and key district personnel. The safety of all children is a primary factor in the decision to cancel school.
Once the decision is reached to cancel school, parents will be notified in the following ways:
Should you no longer want to receive phone calls, please contact the school location from which you are receiving the calls and ask to be removed or call (855) 502-7867.
Should you no longer want to receive emails, select the UNSUBSCRIBE option within the footer of the email or contact the school site directly.
Should you no longer want to receive, reply STOP. To opt back in, send a text to 23177 with the words SUBSCRIBE 02.
Television, Radio, Newspaper
Parents are urged to monitor local media for the most up-to-date weather conditions and information on school closings or early dismissals.
