EDGEFIELD COUNTY, SC (WFXG) - Edgefield County students will be out of school on Oct. 5 due to a concert in the county. And students will have to make up the day over Winter Break.
Luke Bryan will be holding a concert in the Sweetwater Community and, due to the increase in traffic volume and potential road closures, Edgefield County Schools have decided to cancel school for the day. The district based its decision on South Carolina Highway Patrol's traffic management plan, saying it's likely that safe travel for students, parents, faculty, and staff will be impacted throughout the day.
In order to make up for the lost day, students will lose two half-days later in the year. Friday, Dec. 14 will change from a half-day to a whole-day and Monday, Dec. 17 will change from a day off to a half-day. Winter Break will stat on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
Fox Creek High School will let out at 11 a.m. the day of the concert. The half-day will be made up by extending Dec. 21 to a full day of classes.
