Upcoming Events


LEAP Days at Plain Elementary

The South Carolina General Assembly has approved funding for additional days before the start of the new school year for students. These additional days are identified as LEAP (Learn, Evaluate, Analyze, and Prepare) Days. The LEAP Days for Greenville County Elementary Schools will be August 17-21, 2020. Schools are required to offer the LEAP days, but students are not required to attend.

We will use this time to assess the needs of our students to prepare for their learning in the coming year. We also want to help your child become familiar with our new learning environment, including wearing masks in 2nd through 5th grades. Session 1 students will receive breakfast and a bagged lunch to take home. Session 2 students will receive lunch. Chromebooks will also be provided to students K5 - 5th grade

There will be two sessions on each day of our LEAP week. Session 1 (7:45-10:15) will be for GCS non-Virtual Academy Students. Session 2 (12:00-2:30) will be for GCS Virtual Academy Students. Students are asked to attend one day that week according to their assigned color track with make-ups scheduled for Friday.

All appropriate safety measures will be followed to maintain social distancing, to the extent possible, and all safety precautions will be followed to help protect our students, faculty, staff, and community. Transportation will be provided to those who completed their transportation forms by July 15 and requested bus service. Parents should visit the GCS website or call 355-3100 to learn how to enroll their children if they were not in GCS last year or for information on requesting bus transportation.

Please complete one survey for students in kindergarten through 5th grade during the school year 2020-21. The deadline for the LEAP Survey is Monday, August 10th.

In order for your child to attend LEAP week, you need to RSVP by August 10 using Google Form linked on our website. If you are unable to complete the form for some reason, you may call the office to let us know your child will be attending at 355-7700.

South Carolina School Report Card

The School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education, is based on a number of factors. Each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory. These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates. If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
