Two-hour Delay on Wednesday, December 12

WEDNESDAY MORNING UPDATE: GCS will operate on a 2 hour delay. All bus routes are running. Families affected by transportation changes because of impassable roads were called last night. 4-year-old kindergarten is also running on a 2 hour delay.

No students or employees will be penalized for missing school or work due to unsafe conditions. All parents have the option to keep their children at home without penalty if safe travel is a concern. Parents should send a written note when students return to school. The absence will be coded as "weather" in Powerschool and will not be considered unexcused.

Career Centers and the Fine Arts Center will not hold morning classes.


Greenville County Schools plans to operate on a two-hour delay for all students and employees on Wednesday, December 12th. The ICE team will reassess roads in the morning. If conditions worsen GCS could extend the delay or cancel school. That decision would be communicated no later than 7:30am.

In addition to the delay, there will be no morning or afternoon bus routes on icy roads. Bus riders whose routes are cancelled due to icy conditions will receive a phone message this evening. 

Greenville County is under a Winter Weather Advisory until tomorrow morning because of the potential for black ice. A delay will allow temperatures to warm up and buses to travel in daylight conditions.

No students or employees will be penalized for missing school or work due to unsafe conditions.  Any employees who are unable to safely travel to work should notify their supervisors as soon as possible. All parents have the option to keep their children at home without penalty if safe travel is a concern. Parents should send a written note when students return to school.

Substitute orientation scheduled for 9 am tomorrow is cancelled.
