GCS Free Flu & Covid-19 Testing Sites

Starting Monday, November 28, 2022, there will be free, drive-through testing for both Flu and Covid-19 provided at three locations. GCS students, employees, and their household contacts can get tested. Results will be provided in approximately 1 hour. An important change from last year: parents and employees are responsible for reporting any positive results directly to the school or their supervisor. DHEC has again contracted Mako Medical to administer the testing, and the three sites are the same as last year: Fountain Inn High School, MT Anderson Support Center, and Northside Park. All of the information has been updated on the GCS website, which includes flyers in both English and Spanish.

Volunteers Welcome

Volunteers Needed in colorful  backgroundWe appreciate and need our volunteers.  They are one of the many reasons Sevier is such a great school.  Without their help, our events could not be possible.  We encourage all our parents to be involved as a volunteer in whichever way that is convenient for them.  Opportunities include donating items, helping at events and class activities, chaperoning field trips, and helping with PTA chair positions.   Please take the time to make sure you ready to volunteer by checking your district volunteer status and expiration date at the Volunteer Portal.   Those that need to apply as a volunteer may learn more and apply at the District Volunteer Page.  We encourage all parents to apply as a Volunteer 2 (chaperone).  This application is good for 3 years, so please think ahead to include other schools that you may volunteer in the future.  Most of our volunteer activities are communicated through our PTA, so please stay in the loop by completing the PTA Parent Contact form.  This does not obligate you to participate in any event, but allows you to receive volunteer opportunity information.
