Williston school district switching to virtual learning because of coronavirus

·1 min read

Aug. 29—Williston School District 29 will transition to virtual learning Monday, after consulting with the state health department about the coronavirus and its continued impact on students, staff and safe operations.

The decision was shared Sunday evening on the district's website and social media pages.

Monday will be a transition day, and classes will officially restart Tuesday, the district explained in its announcement.

The situation will be reevaluated at the end of the week. An update on in-person learning — for those not sick — is expected Sept. 3.

The school district on Aug. 27 warned a switch to at-home virtual learning "could happen at any time now," citing numbers that "continue to rise."

Thousands of new coronavirus cases have been logged daily in South Carolina.
