Greenville County Schools has a strict Clear Bag Policy for athletic events. Spectators will be permitted to carry one large clear bag (a gallon size Ziplock style bag or a 12" x 6" x 12" clear bag, plus a small clutch purse 4.5" x 6.5").
GCS is continually reviewing safety and security. Utilizing a screening process that includes a clear bag policy will enhance safety inside athletic venues and speed the screening process along. The clear bag is easily and quickly searched and greatly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign.
Beginning Monday, November 28:
Flu and COVID testing is available for GCS students, employees, and their household contacts at 3 drive-through test locations.
Use the links below to preregister for testing. If you are a household contact of a student, use the student link. If you are a household contact of an employee, use the employee link.
You must pre-register the first time you are tested at each location. You do not have to pre-register to be tested again at the same location. If you pre-registered at any point but your contact information has changed, you must login and update your contact information to ensure you receive test results.
Refer to the flyer for the most up-to-date times and locations for testing. Always check the flyer before going to a testing site.
GCS has COVID-19 at-home rapid test kits available for both students and staff. Contact your school or GCS location if you need an at-home rapid test kit.
The Student Emergency Information Form in the start of school student packet is sent directly to the Health Room.
No updates are made to our student database from this form.
Use your Backpack account to update your contact information. You’ll need to scan a copy of a recent utility bill* or Change of Address Form. Please notify the school directly as you must provide two proofs of residency.
If your child will be a bus rider, you’ll also need to indicate that in Backpack or complete the Transportation Form, which is available on the district website.
*All address changes must include a current bill dated within past 30 days from either Duke Energy, Laurens Electric, Piedmont Natural Gas, Spectrum, or Greenville Water System. The bill must show the service address, not just the mailing address. If the bill is not in the parent’s name, please contact Guidance for additional information. Please bring paper copies to the Guidance Office or fax info to 355-6670. We cannot change your address without this documentation.
Questions? Please contact the Guidance Office at 355-6774. Thank you!
