PSAT 2022 information for Current 7th Grade Students

words Each year, the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is offered for 8th graders in Greenville County. Students who score exemplary on the ELA and/or the Math sections of state testing automatically qualify to take this rigorous test for free.  The opportunity is also offered to all other 8th graders for the cost of $18.00.  If you have a current 7th grade student that has accommodations for standardized testing that may qualify and/or you wish for them to take the PSAT you must notify the school counseling department to apply for testing accommodations for the PSAT by Wednesday, May 25th.  If you decide after the deadline that you would like for your child to take the PSAT they still can, however they would take it without accommodations. Remember all students will take the PSAT in 10th grade.  Please call Jami Crisman 355-8485 to pursue accommodations or for any questions.

Tranportation Forms 2022-23

Forms for class registrations for the 2022-2023 school year were sent home with all students in March. Attached to the course selection sheet was a transportation form for 2022-2023. All transportation forms for the upcoming school year are due back to Sevier no later than July 14th. Requests received after July 15th may not be routed for the first day of school. Transportation for late forms will be implemented in the order in which they are received by the Transportation office beginning September 6th 2022. If your student is currently a bus rider or planning to be a bus rider next year, please take the time to fill out and return this form for your student. The transportation forms can be found on the Greenville County Schools website, on our Sevier website, or in the front office during school hours. This form helps us ensure that each student is coded correctly so they will have the right transportation at the beginning of the school year.  If you or your student has already turned in their form, there is no need to fill out another one. Thank you to those that have already submitted their forms.

Early Dismissal Procedures

As walk-in dismissals have continued to increase, we want to remind our families again to please follow the early dismissal procedures to minimize classroom disruptions.  Students planning to have an early dismissal should come to the front office upon arrival at school on the day of their dismissal and turn in a parent note. The parent note should contain the time and reason for the dismissal, a contact phone number, and parent signature.  If someone other than a parent is picking up the student, their name should be provided on the parent note as well.  The student will receive an early dismissal slip as their pass out of class at the time of their dismissal.  Those picking up for early dismissal should park in the parking lot and must come into the office with their photo ID to sign out their student.  Walk-in dismissals are discouraged as they require staff to interrupt class instruction, which hinders classroom focus and productivity.  Students that do not have prearranged early dismissals (by turning in a parent note and receiving a dismissal slip), may be released at class change to minimize class interruptions.   The cut off for walk-in and call-in dismissals is 2:30pm (last class change).  The cut off for pre-arranged dismissals is 3:15pm, however we recommend scheduling for no later than 3:00pm due to the afternoon car line traffic.


COVID Testing Sites

Starting Monday, September 13, 2021, Greenville County Schools, in coordination with DHEC and MAKO Medical Laboratories, will provide free drive through COVID testing exclusively for Greenville County School students and employees.   The three locations are Fountain Inn High School, MT Anderson Support Center, and Northside Park.  There is no appointment necessary.  Students are asked to present their school issued ID or chromebook upon check-in.   While it may be disappointing that other family members cannot access this resource, the restriction of this opportunity helps ensure a quick result turnaround time (usually within 24 hours) for our students and a streamlined process for students eligible for the newly instated “Early Return from Quarantine” protocols.  Please review the district’s information flyers attached to this announcement and also found on the GCS website.

Parent Backpack

Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly.   Parents are reminded that once they have created their online Parent Backpack account, they must link their students using their Student ID (found on their progress report, report card, or class schedule).  After this process is complete, parents must then visit their child’s school and present their government issued photo ID in order for the school to approve their pending request.
