Horry County Schools Updates Bus Plan for 2022-2023 School Year

Horry County Schools have updated it’s bus plan for gated communities. The district’s website initially said buses wouldn’t enter gated communities, but was later updated to state that buses would enter gated communities, but not “without dedicated security personnel or an approved plan to operate inside the gates.” Parents had initial concerns because school buses would no longer enter gated communities but would pick up students along the road at each community’s main gate. The updated guideline revision will go into effect during the next school year. Horry County Schools Public Information Officer, Lisa Bourcier said the changes are due to ‘route efficiencies and the responsibility of maintaining private security devices’ and added that there was enough time before the year begins for the district to ‘work with any communities that have concerns.’
