Horry County Schools unveils final make up day plans

The Grand Strand received some wind and rain on Feb. 24 but the severe weather, forecast by the National Weather Service that put County Officials on OPCON 4 and led to the closing of schools, largely bypassed the area.

Horry County Schools has added one more half day of classes to make up for a day missed in late February.

The district has added a full day for students from June 1-3, depending on the school, according to district spokeswoman Teal Harding. Students will now end classes as a half day on June 3 to make up the time.

This is the third required make up day this school year, and Horry students have already made up two previous days of school. This new scheduling is to make up for school missed Feb. 24 due to the threat of severe weather.

To accommodate the various high school graduation ceremonies, schools will operate on different schedules by attendance areas on the last three days of the school year. Graduation dates and times will not be impacted by the make-up schedule.

The new schedules are:

Wednesday, June 1:

  • Full day for students who attend schools in the Aynor, Carolina Forest, Green Sea-Floyds, North Myrtle Beach and St. James attendance areas.
  • Half day (2.5 hour early release) for students who attend schools in the Conway, Loris, Myrtle Beach and Socastee attendance areas.

Thursday, June 2:

  • Full day for students who attend schools in the Conway, Loris, Myrtle Beach and Socastee attendance areas.
  • Half day for students (2.5 hour early release) who attend schools in the Aynor, Carolina Forest, Green Sea-Floyds, North Myrtle Beach and St. James attendance areas.

Friday, June 3:

  • Half day (2.5 hour early release) for all Horry County Schools students.

Students attending districtwide secondary programs – including the HCS Early College High School, the Scholars’ Academy, the Academy for the Arts, Science and Technology, and the Academy for Technology and Academics – will receive notification from their schools regarding schedule changes unique to their programs, Harding said.

Students with personalized schedules who travel between schools for specific classes should contact the administration of their base school for further instruction about the make-up day.
