ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - Citing a growing number of teacher and nurse absences, two Orangeburg County schools will transition to virtual learning on Monday.

Teachers and staff will report to work in person, according to officials.

We will continue to work together to keep schools open to our students and families, and are grateful for the flexibility and teamwork of our students, families, teachers and staff as we navigate these challenging times together.
