Dear Parents,

In response to the Governor’s Executive Order  of May 11, 2021 Beaufort County School District is making DHEC Opt Out Forms available to parents.  Please click the following link to download the form.

By signing this form and returning it to the school, your child is permitted to be in the school environment without a mask during the school day. 

However, school busses are governed by FEDERAL Law, which requires students to wear a mask while on the bus. Your child will not be able to ride the bus unless he/ she is wearing a mask.  As your student arrives at school, the mask can be removed and placed in their bookbag.

Please review this form carefully. The signed form can be turned into  your child’s teacher. We will have opt out forms available at the front desk of the ECC and Main building if you would prefer to sign the forms on the school site.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to work to keep your child safe in the school environment.
