CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston County School District (CCSD) has six schools moving to virtual learning as of 3:45 p.m. Wednesday as a result of COVID-19 spread within the schools.

Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary School, Chicora Elementary School, and Murray-LaSaine Montessori School are moving to virtual learning effective September 2.

In a letter to parents, the schools stated they expect to return to in-person learning on September 16th.

“Charleston County School District staff will do extensive, additional cleaning of our building, including 100% disinfection fogging tonight, which will allow our staff members to teach remotely from their classrooms beginning tomorrow,” school leaders said in their announcement.

Parents will receive further communication from their child’s teacher regarding assignments and how to access the virtual classroom.

Charles Pinckney and Sullivan’s Island Elementary Schools announced Tuesday they were also shifting to virtual learning this week. CCSD’s Early College High School is also learning virtually.
