Enrolling a Student Welcome to Armstrong ES.   If you are new and need to enroll your child, please access the Greenville County Schools enrollment forms here.  If you have an address change, a telephone change, a job change or anything that we need to be aware of, please be sure to stop by our office and give us your new information or send it to us in writing with your child. It is very important that we have current information in case we need to reach you. Thank you for your cooperation.  Greenville County Schools has a webpage for parents that is full of information and important forms.  You can access that page here or by going to the Greenville County Schools website and clicking on the Parent page.

Visiting and Volunteering We always welcome visitors and volunteers at Armstrong ES.  We have new guidelines for guests to follow in order to ensure the safety of our students.  The guidelines can be found on the Greenville County website just click here.

Car Riders. For safety, please drop off and pick up your child in the designated area in the front of the school. You must have an Armstrong issued car tag when you come in the afternoon car line. If you do not, you will be asked to park and come inside to pick up your child. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our children safe.

Breakfast. Breakfast starts at 7:15am. This is a great time to drop off your child and let them eat breakfast at school for free.

When to keep your child home or send him or her to school:  You are required to keep your child home if he or she has a fever of 100 degrees or higher or has been vomiting.  Consider keeping your child home if he or she has symptoms that prevent him or her from participating in school, such as excessive tiredness,  lack of appetite, productive cough, sneezing, headache, body aches, earache or sore throat.

Parents and others driving on South Carolina roads should be aware of state law that mandates that a motorist stop for a stopped school bus with flashing lights under these conditions: if you are on a two-lane highway, travelling in either direction, you must stop; if you are on a multi-lane highway traveling behind the bus, you must stop. If you are on a multi-lane highway and meet a stopped school bus heading toward you, you do not have to stop but should simply slow down and pass with caution. The fine for passing a stopped school bus can be as much as $1,000 and up to 30 days in jail for a first offense.

In case of inclement weather, be sure to check the radio or television stations for emergency school announcements. Official announcements about Greenville County School System closings will be broadcast on WYFF-TV (channel 4) and Charter Cable Channels 14 or 99. You can also call the school district INFO Line at 355-3100 or go to the Greenville County School website at www.greenville.k12.sc.us 

Parent Portal:  Parents of children attending Greenville County Schools have access to a Parent Portal that will help keep them better informed about their children's academic performance, attendance and much more. Parents must have an access ID and password to obtain their children's school information. Because this information is sensitive, parents must pick up the access ID and password in person at their child's school and show proper identification. The school will not email, mail or provide the information over the phone.  

Children's Online Privacy Protection ACT -  COPPA :  Greenville County Schools believes that technology is an important resource for enhancing the education of students with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning.   Learn more about how our school district works to protect our children's privacy.

Dress Code:  The purpose of a standard code of dress is to instill school pride, to provide for school safety, to reduce school clothing costs, to create a sense of school community between staff and students, to focus our environment on academics, and instill a work ethic by teaching children that professional dress in the workplace is an expectation for success.  Please read to learn all of the details.  Note:  It is at the discretion of Administration to have a “free choice” dress day occasionally (for example Picture Day, Spirit Day, etc.).  On these days, students must adhere to the Greenville County School District Dress Code Guidelines contained within the Armstrong Student Handbook. 

Stewards of Children/Darkness to Light Pledge::  In order to ensure the safety and the wellbeing of your children, we promise to act as guardians to protect them in every way.  We will provide a safe environment where your child will feel comfortable sharing their hopes, dreams, and thoughts.  We will be diligent in monitoring and safeguarding your child throughout the school day.
