Will schools close Monday? That still depends on the governor

Hurricane Irma is headed west, turning away from South Carolina for now.

But schools haven’t made a decision on Monday and Tuesday classes and are waiting on S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster.

Horry County Schools posted on Facebook that if an evacuation is ordered, the schools will be closed.

Georgetown County Schools announced a half-day Friday, but hasn’t made a decision yet regarding school closures.

Coastal Carolina University has canceled classes Monday and Tuesday, but the campus will remain open.

Horry-Georgetown Technical College hasn’t made a decision yet either. As of Friday morning, Monday classes had not been canceled.
