Greenville County Schools, in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, is implementing additional security checks for school volunteers. Effective immediately, all volunteers must have an application and clearance before interacting with children in the schools and/or at school events. Volunteers are now identified by two different categories: Level I or Level II. Please see this letter from the principal explaning the new guidelines.
SIC Elections Coming Soon
One of the many ways parents can contribute to the successful operation of a school is by serving on the School Improvement Council (SIC). Members of the SIC include the principal, parents, teachers and community leaders. For our 2016 – 2017 school year, our SIC has two open parent positions.
The election for our parent representatives will be conducted at the PTSA meeting on Monday, September 12, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the school gym or through an on-line ballot, available on the school and PTSA websites from September 7th – September 12th, 2016. If you are interested in participating on the SIC or wish to nominate one of our parents to serve, please send the name and the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Each candidate must write a brief statement of two or three lines about why he/she wishes to serve; these statements will be posted on the website.
- Send in a jpeg picture to be included with the statement.
- Submit requests by Friday, September 2, 2016, to be eligible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mary Green, PTSA President, Andy Casto-Waters, SIC Chairperson, or Jane Garraux, Principal. Click here to see a letter from the principal with further details.
