Mitchell Road Elementary Named National Blue Ribbon School!


 

We are extremely proud to announce that Mitchell Road Elementary has received national recognition as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education! ONLY 297 schools in the nation were chosen to receive this award this year. We are the only school in Greenville County Schools to receive this award for 2022. 

The US Department of Education recognizes all schools in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:

“I applaud all the honorees for the 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award for creating vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school communities where students can learn, grow, reach their potential, and achieve their dreams,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. “As our country continues to recover from the pandemic, we know that our future will only be as strong as the education we provide to all of our children. Blue Ribbon Schools have gone above and beyond to keep students healthy and safe while meeting their academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. These schools show what is possible to make an enduring, positive difference in students’ lives.”

Flu/Covid Drive-through Testing Sites

Free Drive Thru COVID and Flu TestingStarting Monday, November 28, there will be free, drive-through testing for both Flu and Covid-19 provided at three locations. GCS students, employees, and their household contacts can get tested. Results will be provided in approximately 1 hour. An important change from last year: parents and employees are responsible for reporting any positive results directly to the school or their supervisor. DHEC has again contracted Mako Medical to administer the testing, and the three sites are the same as last year: Fountain Inn High School, MT Anderson Support Center, and Northside Park. All of the information has been updated on the GCS website, which includes flyers in both English and Spanish.

There are some notable changes from the process last year:

Erin's Law / Ley de Erin

Erin's Law logoIn 2014 the South Carolina Legislation passed Erin’s Law, as part of Health and Safety Education. The purpose of the law is to ensure that all students Pre-Kindergarten through High School receive this prevention instruction during the academic school year. The intent of the law is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to remain safe from sexual assault and how to make a report if an assault occurs.

Instructional units were written as a resource guide for educators to implement Erin’s Law. These units are aligned with the South Carolina Academic Health and Safety Education. Lesson content varies from grade to grade. A copy of each lesson will be available at your child’s school for you to preview if you choose.

Over the next school year your child will be presented this lesson by the school counselor. The lesson content is not part of sexuality education and only discusses age appropriate health and safety education.

If you have any further questions after you have previewed the materials please contact your child’s counselor.

En el 2014 la Legislación de Carolina del Sur pasó la Ley de Erin, como parte de la Salud y Seguridad Educacional. El propósito de esta ley es asegurarnos que todos los estudiantes desde Pre Kindergarten a Escuela Superior reciban esta instrucción de prevención durante el año académico. La intención de esta ley es equipar a los estudiantes con el conocimiento y destrezas para permanecer salvos de asalto sexual y como reportar un asalto si esto ocurriera.

Para implementar la Ley de Erin unidades Instruccionales fueron escritas como guía de recurso para maestras. Estas unidades están alineadas con la Educación de Salud y Seguridad de Carolina del Sur. El contenido de la lección varía de grado en grado. Una copia de cada lección estará disponible en el colegio de su hijo para tener una vista previa si usted elige.

Durante las próximas semanas la orientadora/o de su hijo/a presentara esta lección a su estudiante. El contenido de la lección no es parte de educación de sexualidad y solamente discute educación de salud y seguridad de acuerdo a la edad apropiada.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta después de tener una vista previa de los materiales por favor comuníquese con la orientadora/o de su hijo/a
