School District Plans for Students to Return Five Days a Week

The Beaufort County School District will resume face-to-face instruction five days a week beginning Jan. 4, a news release said. 

The district said it decided to return to face-to-face instruction after reviewing COVID-19 infection rates in other South Carolina school districts that have resumed face-to-face instruction. 

“What we and other districts are finding,” superintendent Frank Rodriguez said, “is that most COVID-19 cases among students and staff are from engagement in outside events and activities.”
