HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — Horry County Schools could move to five-day distance learning starting Oct. 19 based on the district’s learning plan and recent numbers released by DHEC.

The district bases it’s weekly instructional plans off of DHEC’s recent disease activity report, which moves Horry County back into the “high” disease spread level. The “high” disease spread level would put HCS in the 5-day distance learning instructional model for the week of Oct. 19.

HCS said they will continue monitoring the cases and will make a decision based off of next Thursday’s disease activity report.

HCS previously announced hybrid instruction through Oct. 16. The instructional meters can be found on Horry County Schools’ website.
