Are school buses safe without seatbelts? How buses are designed to keep kids safe
Horry County students returned to class Monday after a lengthy hurricane-related absence, but those missed days were quickly replaced on the school year calendar.
Superintendent Rick Maxey announced during the HCS board meeting that make-up days will be Oct. 14-15, Jan. 17 and Feb. 18.
Jan. 17, at the end of the first semester, will be a half day, Maxey explained, while Jan. 16, which was originally scheduled as a half day, will now be a full day.
Feb. 17 will be a teacher work/staff development day unless future school cancellations are needed, he added.
Mandatory evacuations ahead of Hurricane Dorian led to the district’s closure for four days last week.
