Default Early dismissal for Richland One Schools

because of game. I'm sure most of ya'll have heard this, but didn't see a thread. Thought it was interesting

Quote:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
Seven Richland One School District schools will dismiss early due to traffic concerns ahead of Thursday night's South Carolina game at Williams-Brice Stadium.

According to a district spokesperson, Rosewood Elementary, Meadowfield, South Kilbourne, A.C Moore Elementary, Dreher High, Hand Middle, and the Olympia Learning Center will let students out early on Thursday.

Rosewood, Meadowfield, South Kilbourne, and A.C Moore will dismiss at noon, Dreher will let out at 12:45 p.m., Hand students will be let go at 1:30 p.m., and the Olympia Center will dismiss at noon.

District officials point to street closings and traffic changes ahead of Thursday night's televised show down between the Gamecocks and the Aggies as the reason why the kids will be home early.

South Carolina's game starts at 6 p.m.

Crazy thing about it is that is a much more legitimate reason than the snow closings, LOL. Seriously, there will be major traffic issues at regular close of day in each of those areas.

All of those schools would be affected by Gameday traffic in one way or another. Good idea not making these kids sit in traffic on a bus on a hot August afternoon.

My brother had his JV game last night instead of the normal Thursday game time, so he's coming to the game with me tonight. Unfortunately he has to work til 3 pm and won't get out early, so we will be there later than if like.

Better late than never! Go Cocks!!!

It makes sense to close the Dreher cluster of schools early. These schools are close to the stadium.

Of course, Dreher never let out early when I went there for Thursday games.

The funny thing about this is that USC is still open for business all day.
