CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County School District announced two more of its schools are switching to virtual-only instruction.

Murray-LaSaine Montessori School and Chicora Elementary School will transition to virtual instruction beginning Thursday for the next two weeks.

The change is because of the number of positive COVID-19 cases associated with the schol and the number of students quarantined as close contacts, according to messages from both schools.

Plans are to return to in-person learning on Sept. 16, the district said.

The schools will undergo an extensive, additional cleaning, including 100% disinfection fogging.

Three other CCSD schools are currently on virtual-only instruction.

The Early College High School planned to return to in-person instruction on Sept. 10. Both Charles Pinckney and Sullivan’s Island Elementary Schools went to virtual instruction as of Tuesday and expect to return to in-person instruction on Sept. 15.
