MCSD officials share information about school reopening on Zoom meeting

A Community Virtual Zoom meeting Tuesday updated parents, community, and others about the start of the 2020-21 school year for the Marlboro County School District.
Led by Superintendent Dr. Gregory McCord, the meeting was to make sure each person in our community was fully aware of what we are doing to keep everyone safe at all times.
It included updates on COVID-19, technology, partnerships, lunch program, extracurriculars, and cleaning and disinfection.
Students returned to school on Wednesday. They will go to school one day a week face-to-face. The other four days will be completed using a virtual platform.
The numbers in the classrooms will be 10-12 per class. McCord said it will allow teachers to keep everyone adequately spread apart from one another.

Her first was a verbally abusive relationship with her son’s father, which lasted six years on and off.
Then a year after she finally left him, she got into another relationship that involved physical abuse.
