News & Notes

Mask Requirement Opt Out & Work From Home Opt Out Information

Parents, DHEC has now published a form allowing parents to opt out of the Greenville County Schools’ facial mask mandate. If you wish to opt out of the requirement that your child wear a mask, complete this form and submit it to J.L. Mann High School by either dropping it by the front office or sending it with your student.  Because we can no longer maintain recommended public health protocols, we will also allow parents to opt for their students to work from home for the remainder of this year, if they submit a request to Mr. Mayfield in writing (email or hard copy) by Monday, May 17. Students will be marked absent, but those absences will be coded as administratively excused.  Additional information is posted on the GCS website.

EOC Testing In School Testing

Even though GCS is allowing parents to opt for their students to work from home for the remainder of this school year, EOC subject tests cannot be taken remotely.  All EOC subject tests will be administered at the school in settings with six feet of social distancing since we can no longer maintain recommended COVID-19 protocols. This school year only, a student’s score on an EOC subject test counts 10% of his/her final grade in the course.

AP Summer Reading Assignments

The below AP classes have required summer reading assignments for the 2021-2022 school year.  


All seniors are required to complete a Senior Survey in SchooLinks. The survey asks for contact information, specific plans after high school, where to send a final transcript to college, and scholarship award information.

When final transcripts are available, JL Mann will send these out to the college specified by the student in the survey. Additional transcripts cost $5.00.

Many students have been awarded scholarships beyond the state Palmetto Fellows and Life Scholarship programs. Seniors are asked to report ALL awards, from ALL sources and colleges, even if they will not be using them in the future. For example, Patty Patriot received a four year $5000 scholarship from College A ($20,000 Total) and a four year $7000 scholarship from College B ($28,000 Total). Even though Patty is going to attend College A, she should report both scholarship awards in the survey. If you have questions, please contact your school counselor.

*The Senior Survey must be completed prior to picking up graduation tickets.
