Parents are asked to report any COVID-19 exposures as well as quarantines within the home to the school principal.
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.
Parents: Please complete the digital Student Handbook and Chromebook Agreement forms for each of your students at Mauldin Middle School. Both forms can be filled out online this year using the link below.
First semester Physical Education classes at MMS will be teaching students the unit on Human Growth & Sexuality October 12-26.
Parents/guardians of these students may call the school and schedule a time to visit our front office to preview the materials which will be presented. Materials may not be checked out and may only be viewed here at the school.
Parents may choose to have their child exempt the lessons. Students who exempt will be required to complete a separate packet for credit. Parents choosing this option must complete the exemption form and return it to the school. We cannot accept forms turned in by the student.
For student tech support of school-issued devices, call 355-HELP(4357).
Student Chromebooks that require repairs can be swapped out for another device at one of our four Career Centers.
Virtual Students: Monday - Thursday, 8AM - 4PM at any career center
In-person Students: Monday - Thursday, 8AM - 4PM at any career center or bring your chromebook to school for replacement on your next attendance day
When we are on attendance plan 1 or 2, students are eligible to order meals to-go for the days that they are not in school. Parents can pre-order each week by Sunday at 9:00 PM for the following week. Students who have ordered to-go food will pick it up on their way out of the building each day they are in the building for school (Blue/Green=Monday and Wednesday; Red/Purple=Tuesday and Thursday). These meals are free of charge until further notice. If you have any questions, please email Sabrina Ball, our FANS (Food and Nutrition Services) Manager, or call 864-355-6778.
