Attention Rising 7th Grade Parents

icon: vaccineImportant Notice about Tdap Vaccinations: In accordance with South Carolina law, all students must have the Tdap vaccination prior to the start of their 7th grade school year. Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).

Mauldin Middle School requires that the vaccination (or exemption) be completed and all immunization certificates turned in to the school before the student starts orientation for the 2022-2023 year. Students will not receive their schedule if the school does not have all of their correct documentation on file. We appreciate everyone who has already completed the Tdap requirements. If you have not, please be advised of this policy and complete the requirements as soon as possible.

Please do not wait until the start of your child's 7th grade school year. This must be on file with our nurses prior to the start of 7th grade. Please email documented proof of vaccination to Nurse Payne, or fax it to 864-355-6988.


Have you moved?

As we are preparing for the next school year, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. This affects which school you will attend next year, as well as your transportation. Also, keep in mind that final report cards are mailed at the end of the school year. Please check Parent Backpack to verify that your information on file is up-to-date. 

If you have moved or will be moving, you must contact the Registrar to update your information. Two proofs of residency are required for address verification at all Greenville County Schools. Email Kathy Monaghan or call her at 864-355-6774 for further information.


Inclement Weather and Quarantine Instructional Plan for Parents

icon: eLearningThe state Education Oversight Committee approved Greenville County Schools as an eLearning district in the fall of 2020. This designation allows the district to conduct eLearning on inclement weather days or when the district must close a school due to quarantines. eLearning days are not counted against the district and therefore does not require the use of make-up days. Below are the procedures and expectations for students on elearning days. This information can also be found under the Parents tab of our website's top navigation bar.

Inclement Weather

For the purpose of inclement weather days, eLearning is defined as live instruction throughout the day. This live instruction may be whole group, small group, and/or individual sessions similar to the Virtual Program instruction. Students are expected to log on to the live instruction during inclement weather days. If students are unable to join the live meets due to power loss, sickness, etc., work must be made up within five days of returning to school. 

Class and School Quarantines

In the event a school or a class within a school has to be quarantined, students should join the live instruction at home via Google Meets. If students cannot join the Google Meets, they must contact their teacher or they may be counted as absent for that day. 

Individual Student Quarantines

Individual students who have to be quarantined need to contact their teacher in order to continue their school work at home. In some cases, teachers may be live streaming their classes and in other situations this may be work posted on Google Classroom. Teachers are not required to live stream since they will have brick and mortar students they must teach. We do encourage teachers to live stream, but ultimately that is up to each individual teacher to live stream, post work or send work home for students on quarantine.

COVID Notification Process – Not a Close Contact

Effective Monday, September 13, Greenville County Schools will begin using Backpack to notify parents when a COVID-positive case has occurred in their child’s classroom or team.

The new Backpack notification process, which interfaces with PowerSchool, will allow principals to automatically distribute an email to parents of all students in a particular classroom. The new process is much faster and more efficient than our previous system of manually selecting each student’s name from the roster and entering it into a Phone Messenger system.

Please note that parents whose children are identified as “close contacts” will still receive a phone call from a school staff member.

Parents who have not done so already should set up a Backpack account using the steps outlined here.


COVID-19 Reporting Reminders

icon: COVID-19Please remember to continue to communicate information regarding your student testing positive or an exposure to another individual who has tested positive for COVID-19. If this occurs, we are asking that you contact a school administrator immediately. You can email or call the grade level administrator, and someone from the school will reach out to you within 24 hours.

*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!


Let's Talk: Social Emotional Learning at GCS

Let's Talk - Greenville County Schools Mental Health ResourcesSocial Emotional Learning (SEL) is a term used to describe traits students need to be prepared for opportunities in life, education, and employment. GCS has committed to building a better graduate, which includes social and emotional skills like perseverance, integrity, work ethic, and interpersonal skills. These are all skills that the business community has emphasized are needed for our students to become healthy and effective employees.

COVID-19 has made the past year hard for us all, especially our children. We understand from local and national mental health experts that our children are experiencing a mental health crisis. Over the past several years, both nationally and in the Greenville community, we have seen consistent increases in mental health needs and in the number of suicide deaths among children. These increases were even more significant in the last 12 months. Nothing is more important than the safety and wellness of our children, and we must all work together to address their needs.

Greenville County Schools and Rethink Ed have partnered to provide you access to our online SEL program. This program provides videos and activities for both adults and children to support your social and emotional wellbeing. You will have access to strategies and tools that will help you and your child recognize and manage emotions, build stronger relationships, and develop skills to lead happier and healthier lives.

For information about the program and how to register, please download and review the Rethink Ed Parent Letter (English | Spanish).
