Middle school in Fort Mill to return to classroom after going remote due to COVID-19 cases

FORT MILL, S.C. — In South Carolina, masks can’t be required because of state law and while some districts have required them anyway, that’s not the case in Fort Mill schools.

One middle school in Fort Mill had to shut down due to COVID-19 cases and go fully remote.

As many parents prepare for their children to go back for in-person classes at Knoll Middle School, some said that without significant changes, they believe it will happen again.

“If I’m being honest, I think we’ll be back here again, soon, if not repeatedly throughout the year, unless we change throughout the school district,” one parent said.
