Greenville County Schools is planning for all students to participate in eLearning on Friday, April 16. Confirmation of this date will be made by Tuesday, April 13. This date is tentative because it hinges on our ability to secure enough vaccine for our employees. As soon as it’s confirmed, we will let parents know. In the meantime, please make childcare arrangements for Friday, April 16.
