• South Carolina Laws for National and State Holidays

    We are required, by law, to acknowledge and educate students about certain holidays throughout the school year.  If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, schools must set aside instructional time the school day before the holiday. In addition, the entire text of the law regarding these days are available below. These holidays include:

    Patriot Day - Monday, September 11, 2017

    Constitution Day- Sunday, September 17, 2017

    (This holiday is not listed in SC Law but is a federal holiday. In 2005 Congress designated September 17 as a day "to hold educational programs for students" on the Constitution. Authorizing legislation states that all educational institutions and federal agencies receiving federal funds will hold educational programs about the Constitution on September 17-Constitution Day.)

    General Casimir Pulaski Memorial Day- Wednesday, October 11, 2017

    SC Patriotism Week- November 6-10, 2017

    Veteran's Day- Saturday, November 11, 2017
