Recent media reports have highlighted the dangers of teens using e-cigarettes, specifically Juuls, and the growing number of teens experimenting with them.  I have put together a brief report on these devices, their impact on teens, and how we plan to address this trend at Sevier. Please review the report so you can partner with us to prevent this from becoming an issue in our community.  Thank you.

Return to School After Illness Guidelines

The Medical Health Services of Greenville County Schools would like to remind parents, in an effort to decrease the spread of contagious illness, to please follow the attached guidelines that allow a student to return to school after an illness. 

Receive GCS Emergency Text Messages

In an effort to better communicate with parents during times of emergency, the GCS Communications Department has implemented a text messaging system that will text a student's primary contact phone number.  Parents that currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes must complete the attached Change in Phone Number form .  We also have a Spanish Change in Phone Number Form available.  Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service.
