GCS on a 2 hour delay Wednesday, no buses on icy roads

Greenville County Schools and offices will open on a 2-hour delay tomorrow and buses will not run on icy roads.  Unsafe road conditions remain in some parts of the county. 

If a bus route is affected, parents will receive a call from the GCS Transportation Department and their child will be excused from school on Wednesday.  If a parent can safely drive their child, they are welcome at school.

All other buses will run on a 2-hour delay.  We ask parents not to drop their child at school at the regular time. School buildings will open two hours later than usual.

Students usually transported by car will not be penalized for missing school if the absence is caused by dangerous road conditions, but a note is required upon return to school.  In schools that are providing bus transportation, these notes are subject to review by the school administration.

Any employee who is unable to safely travel to work should notify their supervisor as soon as possible and will be excused.

UPDATE

In light of Greenville County Schools being cancelled on Monday, January 9th and Tuesday, January 10th, the exam window for middle and high schools will be extended until January 18th.

As a reminder, students are not in school January 13th because of a teacher work day or January 16th  for the MLK holiday. Please help us encourage parents to contact their child’s school for a revised exam schedule.  Report cards will be sent home on January 25th.

Additionally K5 registration is being extended through Tuesday, January 17.

"Greenville All-County Middle School Band auditions scheduled for Tuesday, January 10 at Mauldin Middle School will be postponed until next Tuesday, January 17.  Audition times and location will remain the same. Please contact your band director for further details.

High school auditions scheduled for Thursday, January 12 will proceed as planned provided schools are operating on regular schedule."
