News and Announcements
New SC School Closing Website Launched
The South Carolina Department of Education has launched a new website to keep students, parents, and the public up-to-date on South Carolina public school closures and delays. Click here to check out the new website.
Inclement Weather Procedures
With the onset of winter, inclement weather can cause school closings, delayed openings, and early dismissals. When the weather is severe, always check the radio or television stations for emergency school announcements. Official announcements about Greenville County School System closings will be broadcast on WYFF-TV (channel 4) and Charter Cable Channels 14 or 99. You can also call the school district INFOLine at 355-3100 or go to the Greenville County School website at www.greenville.k12.sc.us. Decisions to close schools will be made on a daily basis by 6:00 AM each morning.
When schools are on a two-hour delay, no breakfast will be served. Buses will run two hours later than their normal times. School will begin two hours later than the regularly scheduled time. Instead of 8:00, the tardy bell will ring at 10:00. Please note that students will not be supervised until 9:15 when there is a two-hour delay.
On rare occasions, developing weather may make early dismissal of school necessary. Should the weather become bad during school hours, you should listen to the radio or TV stations for instructions. Please do not call the school. Our telephone lines need to be kept open so that we can receive instructions from the District Office. Parents whose children ride the bus home will need to stay up-to-date on possible closings by calling the INFO Line or checking the school district website. Children who ride home with their parents will be supervised by adults at the school until they are picked up by their parents. Please discuss with your child in advance the procedure you will follow in getting your child home early.
