The School District of Pickens County (SDPC) will open on a two-hour delay on Thursday, January 20, 2022, due to the continued danger of ice on shaded areas and on secondary roads. The two-hour delay gives additional time for ice to melt off the roads and will improve visibility for drivers. -- Morning 3K and 4K classes are canceled. PM classes operate on a normal schedule. -- No Buses on Icy Roads -- High school students (including Career Center) should check their Schoology messages for adjusted class times and bell schedules.

Rolling Into Toys
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you Cameron Durham, 1st grade student at Pickens Elementary School passed away on Thursday, November 4th, along with his great-grandmother Gladys Holbrooks. Cameron, “Cam”, was a friend to all and brought smiles to all those around him. He loved his family and could be seen every day giving his mom a hug as he then happily walked across the crosswalk to spend the day with his loving teacher and friends. Cam brought so much happiness to all of us at PES. We will be putting together a fundraiser for his family within the next few weeks. There is also a GoFundMe page established to help his family and we have included the link below. As Cam’s friends returned to school today, they shared their thoughts and feelings, along with fond memories of Cam. Some of those thoughts are captured below. Please continue to keep Cam’s family close in your thoughts and prayers as well as his teacher and first grade friends at PES. Sweet memories from his friends and teacher: One time I was holding the door and Cameron walked to the back of the line with me - Caden He was the good and best student I ever wanted to see - Kevin I drew him a picture – Hudson He made all of us laugh. He was so kind and he smiled through his eyes – Mrs. Taylor Sometimes he dropped his pencil box and it was kind of funny – Jonalee One time when we were playing on the track he cut a flip on the grass and made me laugh – River He was the best catcher in kickball – Parker GoFundMe Link: https://gofund.me/c99f05f0
