UPDATE: Due to low temperatures and ice on secondary roads and side streets, Sumter School District schools and offices will open on a two-hour delay for students and staff on Monday, January 8. Morning preschool will not be held, and breakfast will not be served.

Schools will open two hours later than their normal start times. Students who ride a school bus should report to their bus stops two hours later than usual. Please make sure to take appropriate precautions for students waiting outside in the cold in case a bus experiences a further delay.

School officials are mindful of our students who will be out in these cold temperatures waiting for the bus or walking to school. We also need additional time to ensure our buses are ready. Thank you for your cooperation with this schedule change.
