If you have not accepted the invitation to your child’s GoogleClassroom as a guardian, please consider doing so. This allows you to receive valuable information during eLearning from all of your child’s classes. See the link for more information.
Please see the link below for accessing Google Classroom Files and Websites while offline.
eLearning Calendar through April 30, 2020.
We have developed an interactive map showing where WiFi and meals are available through the GCS FANS feeding program. Red pins indicate meals and WiFi, blue pins are for WiFi access only. Please share this information on your school’s website.
Now that the governor has officially extended the school closure through April, your teachers have been asked to plan for an additional 10 days of instruction which would extend your students' eLearning through April 24. Teachers are currently working on these resources and the hard copy versions will be available beginning Wednesday, March 25th. In order to observe appropriate social distancing, we ask that you only come to pick up a paper packet IF your child does not have internet access and requires a paper copy of the learning materials, staff members will be available in the RMS front car line to hand out paper packets on Wednesday, 3:30-5:30; and Thursday, 7:30-8:30, 12:00-1:00, and 4:00-5:00 and that you remain in your car and allow us to bring materials to you. If you have a hardship that will prevent you from coming to the school to pick up a packet, but your child does not have access to the internet and requires a packet, please call the front office at 355-7900 so we can arrange delivery.
*eLearning 2.0 lessons will be accessible online through Google Classroom, beginning April 3rd in order avoid overwhelming students and prevent confusion.
Final Paper Packets – ALL students should be working online: In order to minimize transfer of paper and materials between home and school, please note that after April 24th, all students are expected to access further instruction online. Paper packets will no longer be offered. In order to assist with that, please see the information below regarding available free WiFi options and directions for downloading materials while connected to WiFi so that a child may work on them offline on their Chromebook, and submit on WiFi, later. If you require any assistance with accessing your child's eLearning, please contact your child's teachers or the main office at 355-7900.
4K preregistration and screening for April 1-3, 2020 are cancelled. Since Greenville County Schools are closed through March 31, we will not have time to prepare for screening. Alternate 4K screening plans will be announced once we return to our regular school schedule.
