Georgetown County Schools closing early Friday ahead of Irma

Georgetown County Schools will operate on a half-day schedule Friday ahead of the potential arrival of Hurricane Irma.

“Due to hurricane preparation and the need to move district vehicles, equipment and services, Georgetown County School District will operate on a half-day schedule, including lunch, on Friday,” the district said in an email Thursday.

“This will also give families additional time to prepare for possible evacuation,” the district said.

Other closings have not yet been announced.
