Please see the following message to parents from Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower:
Today, we found silver linings in our rain clouds.
No one wants to hear a forecast for rain on the first day of school. It soaks those new school clothes and backpacks, but, of greater importance, it also makes the morning traffic more challenging and dangerous.
Our teachers and leaders carried on, many getting drenched as they greeted car riders in the process, but remaining enthusiastic and welcoming. And you carried on, too, and we appreciate the patience and kindness you showed, especially as buses were slowed by the rain and car rider lines grew long.
