ATTN: In compliance with Gov. Kemp's newest executive order, and the guidance from public health organizations, Sumter County Schools will remain closed through the end of the school year. We will continue to collaborate, share information, and monitor the situation with local and state health officials to help protect our students, teachers, administrators, and the students' families. We encourage our students to continue to read and enhance their learning. Thank you to all of our Sumter County families for all that you are doing to help slow the spread of COVID-19!


Please continue listening to the automated calls and look for updates on Facebook and our web page.


Please continue safe distancing and stay well,


Dr. Torrance Choates, Superintendent
