BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County School District has announced that four of its schools will be transitioning to virtual learning for one week because of staffing concerns.
The district said beginning Friday, students at Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High will learn from home and return to the in-person school setting on Jan. 24.
The temporary conversion to distance learning is due to staffing concerns and not student infection rate concerns, according to the district.
As a result, athletic and extracurricular activities will proceed as normal, district officials said.
“The decision to convert Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High to distance learning is based on operational concerns,” said Deon Jackson, BCSD Superintendent. “Staffing shortages have greatly necessitated this decision as school staffs continue to be impacted by COVID-19 isolations and quarantine protocol, and the substitute pool is limited when relied upon by 47 schools. We understand the burden this places on our students, staff and families as our shared goal is to provide quality instruction to our students in our buildings; however, we had to consider how the limited availability of staff impacts safety on campus and instruction. We look forward to the return of these students on Monday, January 24.”
The district released the following additional information:
Schools will work with staff and families to ensure that all students receive their Chromebooks. Information concerning access to assignments and livestream instruction schedules will be provided to students and/or parents by principals and teachers.
BCSD will continue to provide breakfast and lunch at no cost to students at these four schools during this temporary conversion to a distance learning platform. Meals will be distributed Monday through Friday by a drive-through pick up service.
Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students can pick-up breakfast and lunch (10 a.m. to 12 p.m.) from the following locations:
Students will not be permitted to enter the buildings or eat on-site. Child Nutrition will be using the “roster system” so the names of the students will need to be provided by the person(s) picking up the meals.
“We need the support and cooperation of our families and communities to ensure that staff and students return to school healthy and that our remaining schools stay open,” Jackson continued. “Our schools mirror their communities, so we ask that our families and communities follow SC DHEC guidelines, maintain physical distancing in group settings, practice good hygiene, limit unnecessary interactions and gatherings, and wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be achieved or is not practical.”
Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students will return to campuses from distance learning on Monday, January 24. All other BCSD schools will continue to operate in-person following their normal schedules.

The curtains came up on the Region 7-AAAAA basketball slate on Jan. 11.
Goose Creek made the trip up Highway 52 to Moncks Corner to tangle with Berkeley and Cane Bay welcomed Wando into the snake pit.
The girls teams from Cane Bay and Berkeley started off 1-0 while Goose Creek’s boys and Wando’s boys also sparked the region slate with a victory celebration.
Berkeley’s girls pull out a 39-33 win against the Gators, getting a game-high 26 points from forward Peighton Jambor. Nakeshia Jerideau and Amani McCray chipped in four points apiece for coach Crystal Peace’s squad.
Peace said she was pleased with the efforts of young point guard Saniya Sanders and her ability to communicate with her teammates on the floor. She also said the Stags have to get better moving forward to compete in what figures to a tough journey through the region schedule.
Goose Creek’s girls were paced by Samiya Grant and Ravin Griffin with 17 and 10 points, respectively.
Berkeley led by four at the break and went on to lead by as many as 12 points. Goose Creek closed within six points in the final period.
“There are a lot of things we have to work on,” Goose Creek coach Tim Baldwin said. “The thing I like is the two seniors are starting to lead a little bit. We’re dealing with a lot of kids who don’t have a lot of varsity experience. We’re going to be learning on the fly but I really like the girls. They don’t mind working hard.”
In the boys game, Goose Creek built a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and coasted to a 70-36 victory.
Britt led the Gators boys with a game-high 20 points while Elijah Dates and Daunte Taylor added double digits, too, scoring 12 and 10 respectively. Shane Potts chipped in nine points.
Damon Brown paced Berkeley with 12 points while Troy Reid contributed nine points. Josh Youngblood chipped in six points.
Cane Bay’s girls improved to 13-3 with a 46-24 win over Wando. Cobras guard Alaina Nettles led all scorers with 23 points and Jasmine Jenkins added 10 points. Tatum Carr chipped in four points.
“They’ve been playing well pretty much all season,” Cane Bay girls coach Ira Owens said. “The thing we’ve done better here lately is getting off to a more consistent start. We had a couple games before Christmas we lost because we had poor-shooting first halves.”
The Cobras built a 10-point halftime lead and pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Warriors 23-11 in the second half.
The win was the fifth straight for Cane Bay’s girls and set a new high mark for wins in a season for the Cobras, who began playing in 2008-09.
In the boys game, Wando scored the final five points to edge the Cobras, 55-54. The Warriors overcame an 11-point deficit to start the region off on the right foot.
Stratford had the night off on Jan. 11 but is slated to travel to Cane Bay on Jan. 14.
Cane Bay’s boys fell to 12-6.
Faith Christian 72,
Northside Christian 41
Faith Christian’s boys won their sixth straight game and improved to 9-3 on the season.
Battery Creek 53,
The Hanahan boys basketball team fell to Battery Creek in overtime on Jan. 11.
Keith Bryant and Dru Goldsmith led the Hawks with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Malik Horry chipped in nine points and Kit Cooper eight points.
Palmetto Christian 65,
St. John’s Christian 60
St. John’s Christian boys lost to visiting Palmetto Christian on Jan. 11.
Wallace Hester poured in 30 points for the Cavaliers and Brock Ray added seven points.
The St. John’s Christian girls also lost a close game, falling 49-44 to the Lowcountry Wildcats.
DII No. 5 UNK wrestling falls by one to NAIA No. 1 Grand View

KEARNEY, Neb. (Press Release) - The Grand View (Ia.) University Vikings, the top-ranked team in the NAIA, used two rallies to get past fifth-ranked Nebraska-Kearney, 19-18, Saturday afternoon at the Health & Sports Center.
This dual was a rare opportunity to see two of the most successful non-Division I programs battle it out. The Vikings, from Des Moines, have won nine of the last 10 NAIA National Titles while the Lopers are a perennial NCAA Division II power with three National Titles to its credit.
“Duals never go how you write them down on paper, which is the beauty of the sport. It’s a match where I thought we were capable of winning everyone, top to bottom. But we just didn’t perform consistently enough and Grand View did,” Loper head coach Dalton Jensen said. “They made the tough choice to go out and be the aggressor in some of those toss up matches or even the ones that favored us. Their dual win streak continues (112th win in a row) and we appreciate them coming over and wrestling us.”
To start the day, seventh-ranked Carson Taylor (133 lbs.) fell behind 6-0 right off the bat as Lincoln senior Wesley Dawkins recorded a takedown and four-point near fall. However, Taylor came all the way back and racked up 12 third-period points to win, 13-8. He managed 1:22 of riding time in the second, finished with 1:27 and had his own four-point near fall. At 184 pounds, 10th-ranked Austin Eldredge (McPherson, Kan.) bested top-ranked Ben Lee, 5-2, thanks to four first period points. That cut the GVU lead to 13-11 with senior Hayden Prince (Goose Creek, S.C.) jetting out to an 8-1 lead at 197 pounds. He tallied an early takedown and a four-point near fall but sixth-ranked Owen Braungardt used a reversal and then a fall with eight seconds left in the period to win and change momentum.
”In a dual meeting setting momentum is huge. Not just from one match to the next, based on the result, but even situation-to-situation in one match,” Jensen said. “We let some of those individual momentum swings in matches not go our way. I have no doubt in my mind Wesley and Hayden are National Champion-caliber guys. There’s time to get there … they need to find a way to be grittier and make tougher choices in matches.”
Sixth-ranked heavyweight Lee Herrington dominated top-ranked Greg Hagan, 14-3, as he not only had a four-point near fall but also was awarded four penalty points. Finally, in the brother showdown everyone was waiting for, sixth-ranked Josh Portillo (Clarion, Ia.) bested second-ranked Justin Portillo, 12-10, in the first sudden victory period. The back-and-forth dual saw Justin forced extra time thanks to a last second escapes. Josh recorded an early takedown in OT to secure the win.
”It’s tough for Josh to have to go out and wrestle his brother,” Jensen said. “Austin is in a descent down to 174 … we’re going to put him down (at that weight) and see what he can do. Kudos to Matt and Lee. They really want to go fight for this team and score as many points as they can.”
UNK hosts the Midwest Duals next Friday and Saturday at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds.

Road work on congested Goose Creek intersection to begin this week
GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — For years, Goose Creek residents have been frustrated with the intersection of Montague Plantation Road and Old Mount Holly Road.“It sucks. It needs to be bigger.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — For years, Goose Creek residents have been frustrated with the intersection of Montague Plantation Road and Old Mount Holly Road.
“It sucks. It needs to be bigger. It takes me at certain times of the day, to get out her at least 15 to 20 minutes to get past that light,” Goose Creek resident Ruth Rodriguez said.
The two-lane Montague Plantation road is squeezed in so tight that the turning left at the intersection is almost impossible to many Goose Creek residents say as the left turn lane only stretches approximately a tenth of a mile from the intersection.
Residents say that the road can back up almost a mile and that the short stretch can take up to 20 minutes to get by. A frustrating situation for those living in the neighborhoods close to the intersection.
“Most people that live in Goose Creek go all the way down to North Charleston and downtown personally. So, 20 minutes waiting less than a mile away from your house is a little infuriating,” Goose Creek resident Megg Lytch said.
Over the past couple of years Berkeley County has tried to do their best to make some tweaks around the area to help traffic congestion but it hasn’t helped much.
Some residents choose to take a longer detour in the opposite direction because of how congested the traffic can get during peak hours.
“Some people electively don’t choose this route right now. Traffic is kind of like water, it’s going to take the path of least resistance. This area can’t be described as the path of least resistance right now,” Berklee County Supervisor Johnny Cribb said.
Goose Creek mayor Greg Habib says that the intention of the road was to try and help give other avenues for traffic, but when the road was a built a few years ago, he says immediately he knew there was a problem.
“This road has only been complete from liberty hall road up to [interstate] 52 for a couple of years. And already, really the day it opened, it didn’t flow the way we wanted it to flow,”
But today marks a change in the problems for many Goose Creek residents.
Berkeley County officially broke ground on Phase Two of the Henry E. Brown Jr. Blvd improvement project today at Trident Baptist Church.
The church is located right next to the infamous Montague intersection but not without any reason. The $31 million project will widen the road at the intersection from a two-lane road to a four-lane road adding a solid left turn lane.
“It’s going to be a very impactful expansion, really improving the quality of lives for the people who live in and around this road but also the people who drive from another area in the county up to the upper part of the county,” Habib said.
The improvement project will also widen approximately four miles of Henry E. Brown Jr. Blvd from Liberty Hall road to Highway 52. Improvements will also include more accessible pedestrian and bike walkways.
“So whenever this project gets done we think it will divert traffic definitely to this area, which removes traffic from other areas and will provide relief,” Cribb said.
The project was funded by 2008 and 2014 voters passing the one-cent sales tax referendums. Those same taxpayers still living in Goose Creek are very excited about the project.
“I think it’ll be great for this community. I do. And I’m stoked about that,” Rodriguez said.
But although the project broke ground today, the completion of the renovations won’t be complete for another three years.
A message that Cribb wanted to be clear about to local Goose Creek residents was that of patience.
“We thank the public for their commitment to sales tax program, but for today and for the next three years we’re really asking for their patience. But on the other side of this thing it will be a significant improvement for people who travel this area,” Cribb said.
The thought of three years of construction is frustrating for some.
“That’s kind of heartbreaking, truly heartbreaking because that means for three years it’s going to be even harder to get out,” Lytch said.
But for others, they remain hopeful for the future.
“But I guess in the end, the end result is going to be great,” Rodriguez said.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – There is a new focus on spotlighting art in the City of Goose Creek.
Local artists spent the day painting a large mural on the side of a business Tuesday. It’s just the first step in bringing more art to the city.
“You’re looking at the very first colorful large-scale piece of public art in the City of Goose Creek,” said the city’s art coordinator, Barbara Richardson, who is active in the art scene.
“I’ve been part of the Cultural Arts Committee for close to three years and its sole purpose is to get art out and give the residence of Goose Creek a feeling of home,” she said.
The mural on the side of the Food Lion shopping center next to Button Hall Avenue is a big part of that push.
“It’s something Goose Creek has needed for a very long time. I’ve lived here all my life,” said Richardson.
She has been helping spread her love of art for decades.
“I went to Goose Creek high school. I went to college, majored in art my master’s degree is also in art; I’ve been an art teacher for years, I’m currently teaching at Charleston School of the Arts, and one of the artists working with us recently graduated.”
Enrique Boyd is from North Charleston but has lived in Goose Creek.
“I mean it’s great. I didn’t know it was gonna blow up as much as it has and I’m excited for everyone to see it when it’s done. We still have a way to go but as you can see, we’re making progress, the second day,” he said.
The other artist working on the project is Louis Tompkins.
“It’s something great that honestly, the city of Goose Creek has needed for a long time,” he said. “I was raised here in Goose Creek. My parents were raised here in Goose Creek, my wife’s parents were raised here. So we have roots here, this actually means a lot to me.”
The city is paying $4,000 for this mural, but they are considering several other art projects for the near future, including a possible mural park, where visitors could come create their own large murals.
“There are many more great things to come here,” said Tompkins.
“Let’s just face it, art transforms communities,” said Richardson.
Richardson says they’re hoping to finish work on the mural later this week and may begin work on another mural after that.
If you own a business in Goose Creek and would be interested in having a mural on your building, you are asked to contact the city.
