Student Arrival and Departure Reminders:
Students should never be dropped off or picked up in front of the school or alongside Rice Street. Recently, we have had several incidences of parents violating this policy and creating a safety risk for our community, and especially for their own child. Disciplinary action will be taken if the policy is violated.
Also, use of cell phones (talking or texting) in a moving carpool line is prohibited. For the safety of our students, please be respectful of this policy.
Greenville County Schools (GCS) Check-In Guidelines
Safety procedures are being further enhanced this year with a new electronic School Check In System. Parents/ Guardians and others entering a GCS school or office building must sign in through the system, which automatically runs a check against the National Sex Offender Registry. Everyone is checked EACH time they visit a school or office.
Parents can either sign in as a Parent/Guardian (receives a Visitors badge) or Volunteer (receives a Volunteer badge) depending on the purpose of their visit to their child's school.
A person is eligible to volunteer through the school, PTA, and other school organizations once cleared through the National Sex Offender Registry. The Sex Offender Registry is in addition to any volunteer procedures used by our schools, PTA, and other school organizations to recruit and train volunteers.
Also, please be reminded that volunteers must participate in training prior to volunteering.
