Parents are asked to report any COVID-19 exposures as well as quarantines within the home to the school principal. Please call 864-355-4800.
The CDC recommends avoiding all non-essential travel, and both the CDC and SC DHEC asks persons returning from international travel within the past 14 days to monitor their health, stay home as much as possible and wear a mask while in public. Staff and students can return to school after U.S. or international travel provided they have not been knowingly exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms of illness, in addition to adhering to all precautionary measures in place at the school.
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 and show as negative.
Keep students at home if they present with any of the following symptoms:
Per DHEC regulations, any staff or student identified as having spent 15 minutes or more within six feet of a positive case over the course of 24 hours is considered a "close contact" 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.

You can find this number on any of your students' official progress reports or report cards that have previously been sent home, or you may come in to the school (with picture ID) and obtain your child's ID number from our school secretary.
