Students in grades 3-8 will have a temporary change to their attendance due to state testing in April and May. Additional details are posted on the GCS website:
Virtual Program Students
On April 29, April 30, and May 7, students in grades 3-8 in the virtual program are required to attend school in-person to take the State’s SC READY and SC PASS tests, which cannot be given remotely. Virtual Program students in grades 4 and 6 are also required to attend in-person school on Thursday, May 6 for the science portion of SC PASS test. Virtual Program middle school students who are taking Algebra I will also need to attend in-person school on May 26 to take the State’s End of Course Exam. The Algebra 1 exam grade counts as 10% of the student’s final grade. We are asking parents of Virtual Program students in grades 3-8 to complete a transportation survey by March 29 if your child will need transportation on these dates. The survey is available in your Parent Backpack. If you have transportation or Backpack questions, please contact your child’s school.
On April 29, April 30, and May 7 students in grades 3-8 who normally attend in –person school – known as brick and mortar students – will be on eLearning. This will provide space in school for Virtual Program students to take state tests, which cannot be given remotely. Please start making plans now to ensure you have childcare in place.
Greenville County Schools is planning for all students to participate in eLearning on Friday, April 16. Confirmation of this date will be made by Tuesday, April 13. This date is tentative because it hinges on our ability to secure enough vaccine for our employees. As soon as it’s confirmed, we will let parents know. Parents are encouraged to begin the process of arranging childcare for Friday, April 16.
GCS expects to accommodate ALL employees who signed up to get the shot. We do not believe another eLearning day will be necessary after the 16th. Teachers will continue to provide lessons on the day they are receiving their second dose. Assignments will be posted during the time they are away from work to get the vaccine. Thank you for your support of GCS.
Parents are welcome to take advantage of a virtual tutoring opportunity provided by Clemson University Engineering students. Please review the attached flyer.
Don't forget to order your yearbook. All orders are online this year. Go to Jostens.com to order your yearbook now for $35. Prices will increase soon. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Blakely at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Rising 8th & 9th Graders,
Greenville County high school marching bands are actively recruiting members to be part of the marching band Color Guard for next year! Please watch this short Color Guard video to learn more about the Color Guard activity. No previous experience is required and it’s a great opportunity to participate in a competitive but fun activity at the high school level. If interested, talk this over with your parents and complete the 2021 Color Guard Interest Form by Friday, March 11. Information will be compiled and a high school band director will be in contact with more details regarding auditions, sign ups and schedules. Completing the survey does not obligate you to participate. The survey is simply a way for you and your parents to get more information from the high school you will attend in order to decide if this is something you would like to do next year. We hope to hear from you!
