Parents are asked to report any COVID-19 exposures as well as quarantines within the home to the principal, Dr. Davenport. Please note that international travel comes with a 14-day self-quarantine requirement. This means students or staff who recently returned from out of the country should not be physically present in school until 14 days after they arrive back into the US – and then only if they are well and healthy.
Parents are strongly encouraged to screen their students daily, at home, for COVID-19 symptoms (see below). If a student takes a COVID-19 test because he/she is symptomatic, the student should not be physically present in school until the test results are returned.
Keep students at home if they present with any of the following symptoms:
GCS will follow DHEC guidelines regarding the notification of families when COVID-19 cases are present in schools. Under current guidelines, anytime a student or staff member in any GCS school receives a positive test for COVID-19, a notice will be placed on the GCS website, alerting the school and community. Additionally, parents will receive a personal phone call if the positive case was in their child’s classroom or part of another school group to which their child is connected. Please note the importance of social distancing.
Per DHEC regulations, any staff or student identified as having spent 15 minutes or more within six feet of a positive case are considered close contacts and will be excluded from school for a minimum of 14 days. Students and staff who were not close contacts will be allowed to remain at school. We will be sure and let you know if these notification requirements change. Additional information is available on the GCS Parent Resource webpage.
Every student in Greenville County Schools will be issued a district owned Chromebook and charger to use for academic purposes. The Technology Fee has been waived for the 2020-21 school year, however parents/guardians will need to complete an online Chromebook Agreement form for EACH Bryson Middle School student in their family (regardless of whether they are attending school in person or are participating in the GCS Virtual Academy) BEFORE a Chromebook/charger can be issued to the student.
More information COMING SOON with dates and details about Chromebook distribution.
Parents of students who need to walk to Hillcrest HS at dismissal for transportation purposes must complete the Permission form to walk to Hillcrest High School . Once a staff member reviews and confirms this information, the parent will receive notification that permission has been granted for the 2020-21 school year.
