The Beaufort County School District announced Tuesday evening that all schools and the district office would remain closed until Monday, Oct. 17 in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.
Never miss a local story.
The district has said that electrical service to schools is the biggest impediment to reopening, but an announcement to parents also listed
▪ an expected lack of available staffing,
▪ downed trees,
▪ standing water in some schools and
▪ the need to restore food service facilities
as problems preventing an earlier opening.
