MARION, S.C. (AP) — At least one school in South Carolina will likely remain close for the rest of the school year because of damage from Hurricane Florence's flooding.

The Marion County School Board said repairs to Brittons Neck Elementary School are taking a while and they do not want to move students again during the school year.

Brittons Neck Elementary School students have been going to two other schools since Hurricane Florence struck in mid-September. The schools are 20 miles (32 kilometers) away in Marion.

The school district held a public meeting about the decision Tuesday, and media outlets reported that parents are worried the school may never reopen.
