Good Morning Silver Fox Family,

It is my hope that everyone is safe and well.  DCSD schools will operate virtually through January 22, 2021.  All DCSD schools and buildings will be closed through January 18, 2021.  We are coming to the end of our first semester classes, and we will be closing out the semester with final exams and the state-mandated End of Course Exams (EOCEP) for EOC classes - Algebra I, English II, Biology, and US History.

Here are the revised EOCEP and Final Exam Schedules for the Fall Semester classes:


DCVA students will report to their “Home School” for testing----Mayo students will report to Mayo*, HHS students will report to Hartsville High, DHS students will report to Darlington High, and LHS students will report to Lamar High.  

*Lamar High School DCVA students will report to our testing sites no later than 8:15 AM with a fully charged MacBook, a MacBook charger, and a mask.  Safety protocols will be in place. During the test, students will not have access to any personal electronic devices. Testing will begin at 8:30 a.m. and should end around 11:30 a.m., pending everyone is present and on time.
