Pickens County schools will open on a 2-hour delay on Friday, November 18, due to heavy smoke from forest fires.

Attendance will be optional.

Morning 4K classes are canceled.

The district expects the current large-scale burnout operation on the Pinnacle Mountain Fire to create heavy smoke, which will combine with existing air pollutants to create dangerous air quality conditions in parts of the county, especially in the morning.

Parents have the discretion to keep their children home from school all day, and all absences will be excused for the day.

Greenville County School announced Friday they were operating on a normal schedule. The decision whether to hold outdoor activities today will be made at the school level. Athletic decisions will be communicated later in the day.
