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.

Parent Portal Information
Parents of children attending Greenville County Schools have access to a new and improved 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.
The Parent Portal can be accessed by clicking on the Portal icon(compass) located in the top right-hand corner of the district website or the AES Website. After creating a personalized username and password, parents will have access to their child's grades, grade history, attendance, teacher comments, student information, and discipline. Parents will also be able to change account preferences such as email address, username and password. For more information please contact the school.
Standard Code of Dress Policy
PURPOSE: 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.

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.
Código de Vestido Estándar
PROPÓSITO: el propósito de establecer el código de vestir es: para motivar el orgullo escolar, proveer seguridad en la escuela, reducir el costo de la vestimenta, crear un sentido de comunidad entre facultad y estudiantes, enfocar nuestro ambiente en lo académico, e impartir una ética de trabajo al enseñarle a los estudiantes que el vestir profesionalmente en el trabajo es una expectativa para el éxito.
