Weather Update

Greenville County Schools is monitoring the predicted winter weather that is expected to arrive in our area this weekend.  District leaders will make a decision about whether to hold school on Monday no earlier than Sunday afternoon and no later than 5:30am Monday. We have told school administrators and athletic directors that all Saturday events must be concluded by 5pm.  If school groups are travelling outside of the county, buses must be back the at school by 5pm on Saturday so students can drive home before sunset.

Since the forecast continues to call for deteriorating conditions over the next 24 hours with periods of snow, sleet, and freezing rain, we have decided to cancel all GCS activities for Sunday, December 9. 

Our Inclement Conditions Evaluation Team is on alert and prepared to drive county roads on Sunday or early Monday morning to assist with decision making.

Any schedule changes will be announced on the GCS website, social media channels, local media and through text message.  If you would like to receive a text message about school closings please ensure that you have a cellular phone listed as your “home phone” in Powerschool.  We sent TEST messages to parents this week. If you received a TEST text message please reply with a “Y” to activate your phone in the School Messenger system.  We are currently awaiting more than 30,000 parent responses.
