Students return to class at North Hartsville Elementary School on Monday morning.
This week, about 7,000 Darlington County public-school students are returning to in-person classes for the first time since COVID-19 closed county schools’ doors six months ago.
Darlington-based Pee Dee Electric Cooperative and Marlboro Electric Cooperative have announced their entry into a management agreement effective Sept. 18.
The school district has outlined numerous safety practices and procedures as students return to class while COVID-19 is still a threat.
As school board members last week debated putting students back in classrooms again for the first time since March, one board member offered a stark reminder: The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t gone away.
