A Message from Dr. Reavis


100 Days of School!

Time flies when you are having fun! It is hard to believe that the 100th day of school is January 27th, that our 2nd quarter report cards come home on January 20th, or that we are entering the second half of the 2021-2022 school year! We've made some great memories in the first part of the year and we look forward to all that is to come.

As we continue our year, one goal is to maintain a safe in-person instructional environment for our students and staff. As of Jan. 2, 2022, DHEC issued new requirements and updates regarding quarantines and mask requirements. I encourage families to read and understand these policies (GCSD Covid document). We appreciate the support from our families and community as we continue to stay student-focused.

-Dr. Phillip Reavis, Principal

Cold vs. Flu

Flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone.
