New feeding sites added!

USDA Waiver Changes

Greenville County Schools has been granted permission to provide two meals at one time (lunch and tomorrow’s breakfast), which eliminates the need for multiple pick up times each day. GCS is also using buses to deliver meals to various locations in addition to the 15 school sites we are currently utilizing.  Meals are available for pick up from 10 a.m. – noon, for everyone 18 years of age and younger (and special needs adults up to age 21). 

Beginning Tuesday, March 31, a new USDA waiver enables us to allow adults to pick up meals for a child even if the child is not present, as long as the adult can demonstrate proof of the child’s identity. This has been an issue for families where a child is sick or immune-compromised, or not all the children can fit in one vehicle, for example. GCS personnel will review documentation to the best of their ability while maintaining appropriate distance and without physical handling.

Accepted forms of identification include, but are not limited to:

  • school identification card
  • school report card
  • Parent Backpack access
  • child’s passport
  • birth certificate
  • government-issued child identification card
  • any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record

GCS to Expand Wi-Fi Coverage 7 AM – 7 PM at 20 Locations

Greenville County Schools continues to expand its Wi-Fi coverage for families across Greenville County. In addition to opening two new feeding/Wi-Fi sites on Monday, GCS will provide Wi-Fi via school buses to 20 additional sites that include Dollar General Stores, QuikTrips, and other community locations. Buses will be parked at these sites from 7 AM – 7 PM, Monday through Friday.

GCS Feeding and Wi-Fi Sites

Locations are categorized by color: Red locations provide food and Wi-Fi, Blue locations provide Wi-Fi at GCS schools, and Yellow locations provide Wi-Fi only (20 new locations). 


Cambios de exención del USDA

Se le ha otorgado permiso a las Escuelas del Condado de Greenville para proporcionar dos comidas a la vez (almuerzo y el desayuno para el próximo día), lo que elimina la necesidad de múltiples horarios para recoger la comida. GCS también está usando autobuses para entregar comidas en varios lugares, además de los 15 sitios escolares que estamos utilizando actualmente. Las comidas están disponibles para recoger desde las 10 a.m. hasta el mediodía, para todos los menores de 18 años (y adultos con necesidades especiales hasta los 21 años).

A partir del martes 31 de marzo, una nueva exención del USDA nos permite permitir que los adultos recojan comidas para un niño, incluso si el niño no está presente, siempre y cuando el adulto pueda demostrar una prueba de la identidad del niño. Este ha sido un problema para las familias donde un niño está enfermo o inmunocomprometido, o no todos los niños pueden caber en un vehículo, por ejemplo. El personal de GCS revisará la documentación lo mejor que pueda mientras mantiene la distancia adecuada y sin manipulación física.

Las formas de identificación aceptadas incluyen, pero no se limitan a:

  • tarjeta de identificación escolar
  • reporte de calificaciones de la escuela
  • Acceso a la mochila para padres
  • pasaporte del niño
  • certificado de nacimiento
  • tarjeta de identificación del niño emitida por el gobierno
  • cualquier documento que pruebe la identidad y relación del padre / tutor con el niño, como un decreto de adopción; registro de médico, clínica u hospital; registro religioso; o registro de guardería

Las Escuelas continúan expandiendo acceso al Internet para familias en todo el Condado de Greenville. Además de abrir dos nuevos sitios de alimentación e Internet, este lunes 30 de marzo, GCS proporcionará acceso al Internet a través de autobuses escolares en 20 ubicaciones nuevas que incluyen tiendas “Dollar General”, estaciones de gasolina “QuikTrips”, y otros lugares en la comunidad. Los autobuses estarán estacionados en estas ubicaciones de las 7am a las 7pm, de lunes a viernes.

Todas las ubicaciones de los sitios
de alimentación e Internet de GCS

Las ubicaciones están clasificadas por color: las rojas brindan comida e Internet, las azules brindan Internet en las escuelas de GCS y las amarillas brindan únicamente Internet (20 ubicaciones nuevas).
