GCS Friday Delay, No Cancellation
Update Friday, February 21 6:30 am:
The ICE team was on the roads early this morning checking conditions and determining if and where icy patches exist on roads. After a thorough check of the county, including the northernmost elevated areas, no serious concerns were identified. As a result, we will continue with the three-hour delay announced yesterday evening.
As of right now, we have only officially lost one day of instruction since days with a delay or early dismissal still count for the state as a day of instruction. That missed day will be made up Tuesday, March 24. The other two “snow days” on our calendar remain as planned student holidays at this time.
Thursday, February 20:
Due to precipitation, combined with a black ice advisory and forecast freezing temperatures in the overnight hours, Greenville County Schools will operate on a 3-hour delay tomorrow, February 21. Bus routes will begin 3-hours later than normal and schools and offices will open to receive students 3-hours later than usual. Please be aware that depending on the results of an early morning assessment by our ICE team, school could be cancelled. A final decision will be made and communicated by 7 a.m. The school day will conclude at regular time. Students will not attend morning classes for the Career Centers or Fine Arts Center.
