RICHLAND TWO WILL OPERATE ON A TWO HOUR DELAY
COLUMBIA, S.C. —Richland School District Two will operate on a two-hour delay, Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The delay will provide time for district and school administrators to check bus routes and school campuses for any damages caused by severe weather.
