Inclement Weather

Due to the threat of inclement weather in the Sumter community, Friday, January 21 will be an eLearning day for all students in Sumter School District. This means schools and office buildings will be closed, and all activities, including athletic events and field trips, are canceled. Because we are an approved eLearning district, this day will not have to be made up, and lessons and assignments will be posted in Schoology. Students will complete eLearning assignments later if they are unable to participate due to power outages, lack of internet service, or other barriers.

 In order to help ensure the safety of our students and staff, Sumter School District works in conjunction with emergency management and law enforcement officials when making decisions regarding inclement weather in our community. Although the forecast could change, we wanted to give our families and staff enough notice in order to prepare for the eLearning day. Please remain safe.

The Board Policy Committee will meet Thursday, January 20 at 6 PM.
