CCSD Reinstates Face Mask Order Beginning in January – Pending DHEC Rating

Published

The Charleston County School District (CCSD) Board of Trustees has voted to reinstate the enforcement of wearing facemasks in all schools and buildings for students, staff, and visitors following Winter Break – pending DHEC’s end-of-month rating. Staff will be back on January 3, 2022, and students will return on January 4, 2022.

CCSD said the decision is tied to DHEC’s COVID-19 rating for Charleston County that will be issued at the end of the month. If the rating is medium or high on December 31st, per Policy ADD, the Board will direct the district to enforce the wearing of masks starting on January 3, 2022, through at least January 14, 2022.

The district will provide an update on December 31, 2021, through callouts, emails, and social media posts.

The Board’s action will reinstate all parts of Policy ADD, which you can review here. This includes exemption waivers. If waivers were approved and granted for your students earlier this year, they will still be in place next month. New face mask exemptions will not be processed until if and when the mask requirement starts.

Please email additional questions about this decision to facemasks@charleston.k12.sc.us.
