Students who plan to attend GCS virtual school will have the option to attend on their assigned day (below) from 12:30-3:00 pm.

We are also looking forward to checking on our students!
Online Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications are now available for the 2020-2021 school year. While paper applications will be provided for parents when students return to school, the online applications are by far the most accurate and efficient method to apply for Free or Reduced Priced Meals. On average, online applications are processed within 24-48 hour of completion. We highly encourage all parents to take advantage of this simple to use and fast process.
As a reminder, SC law requires that students entering 7th grade receive a dose of Tdap vaccine. Students entering the 7th grade who have NOT received the Tdap vaccine by the first day of school on August 17, 2020, will not be allowed to attend school until they have received the vaccine and provided proof to the school nurse.
If you are unsure if your child has met this requirement, please contact our school nurse, Ms. Arness, at 864-355-7007 or email@example.com

Don't delay - set up your profile and complete your forms today so your student is ready when conditioning and try out information is released!
As a reminder, your student must be in 7th or 8th grade to participate in school sports.
