District working hard to prepare for 2020-2021

"We're ready."


With that short sentence, Abbeville County School District Interim Superintendent Dr. Mason Gary said that it is all good for the School District's preparation for the 2020-2021 school year.


August 17 is the first day of school for students, and in the days before that, professional development was scheduled for the teachers.


Then, too, there was an abundance of logistical tasks to be accomplished to make sure that against the threat of the coronavirus pandemic, schools could open safely.


Buildings had to be cleaned, face masks and face guards delivered, as well as hand sanitizer.


"You've got to have it done in advance," he said, indicating that waiting until the day that students arrive is not an option.


District personnel are "making sure we have all the necessary things," he said.


Gary is the Interim Superintendent of the Abbeville County School District, and he was hired earlier this summer, so when he arrived in the District he had to learn much in a short period of time.


Gary said he has tried to be very supportive in the District's effort to get ready.


"Every district is a little different," he said. "This is a great group."
