School Cancelled Due To Hurricane Matthew

School will be closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week and all after-school functions will be cancelled.

Hurricane Matthew is making its way towards the coast and an official evacuation order has been issued for the low country.  Though we are not expecting the weather to impact our area, Barnwell School Districts are official evacuation centers and Highway 78 and 278 are evacuation routes.  Due to the amount of traffic coming through our area and the need to keep our facilities available for evacuation centers, the Director of Emergency Management and Governor Haley have requested for schools in Barnwell County to close for the remainder of the week.
