Please join us on Monday Oct. 17th from 11am - 12pm for a virtual workshop on various middle school options available for your child next year. We will discuss school choice (special permission), magnet programs, charter schools, and how all these application processes work if you would like your child to attend somewhere other than your homebased middle school. Click this workshop link to join the workshop on Oct. 17th at 11am. We do encourage parents to go ahead and be researching potential middle schools, as there are some parent nights and open houses for charter and magnet programs happening before this workshop. Please direct any questions to Autumn Cline. We hope to see you there!
If you are interested in applying for your child to attend a magnet or charter middle school please be checking those school websites for upcoming open houses, parent nights, and application widows opening up. The Magnet Academies Flyer lists the open house dates for the GCSD magnet programs. For more information about GCSD magnet programs, charter schools, or applying for school choice, please visit the district's school choice page. Our Bell's counselors have a Middle School Info webpage available with updates and the counselors' contact information for any middle school questions.

DHEC has updated the mask requirements for students returning to school after having COVID-19. Students may be eligible to remove their mask on Day 8 if they test negative on two rapid antigen tests on both Day 6 and Day 8. Student athletes may be eligible to return on Day 8 if they meet the same criteria. We have included all of the details below. If students do not meet the requirements below, they are still required by DHEC to wear a mask Days 6-10. COVID guidance issued for a positive case will reflect these changes starting Friday, 8/19.
Please note that you must provide documentation for the two negative rapid antigen tests. For at-home rapid tests, you must provide the DHEC Attestation Form for both tests. If you get negative test results from a doctor’s office or lab, you must provide the test result documentation from the doctor’s office or lab for both tests.
When returning to school after testing positive for COVID-19:
A mask must be worn days 6-10 including asymptomatic persons, unless the person tests negative on two rapid antigen tests performed on Days 6 and 8, then the mask may be removed after the negative test on Day 8.If either test on Day 6 or 8 is positive, the mask must be worn through day 10 and no further testing is recommended.
If a mask is not worn as instructed above, a 10-day isolation must be observed.
Student athletes may participate in athletics on Day 8 without restriction if they test negative on two rapid antigen tests performed on Days 6 and 8. If they do not provide documentation of two negative tests on Day 6 and 8, students are not eligible to participate in athletics until after Day 10.
Thank you for your attention to this update, and please reach out to the front office if you have any questions.
