The South Carolina General Assembly has approved funding for additional days before the start of the new school year for students. These additional days are identified as LEAP (Learn, Evaluate, Analyze, and Prepare) Days. The LEAP Days for Greenville County Elementary Schools will be August 17-21, 2020. Schools are required to offer the LEAP days, but students are not required to attend.
We will use this time to assess the needs of our students to prepare for their learning in the coming year. We also want to help your child become familiar with our new learning environment, including wearing masks in 2nd through 5th grades. Session 1 students will receive breakfast and a bagged lunch to take home. Session 2 students will receive lunch. Chromebooks will also be provided to students 3rd-5th grade and for 4 year old kindergarten through 2nd grade students as they become available.
There will be two sessions on each day of our LEAP week. Session 1 (7:45-10:15) will be for GCS non-Virtual Academy Students. Session 2 (12:00-2:30) will be for GCS Virtual Academy Students. Students are asked to attend one day that week according to their assigned color track with make-ups scheduled for Friday.
All appropriate safety measures will be followed to maintain social distancing, to the extent possible, and all safety precautions will be followed to help protect our students, faculty, staff, and community. Transportation will be provided to those who completed their transportation forms by July 15 and requested bus service. Parents should visit the GCS website or call 355-3100 to learn how to enroll their children if they were not in GCS last year or for information on requesting bus transportation.
Please click the tabs to the right for signing up for the Summit Drive Elementary LEAP days. These days are for all students- students planning to attend in-person learning and the GCS virtual program. Please fill out the form even if you have elected to attend the virtual program. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Please see the supply lists by grade level below. We will be providing students with durable large bags that will be sent home with a Chromebook and other instructional items. Keep your supplies home with your child and place the supplies in the bags. These will serve as virtual kits that can be carried to and from school with your child depending on the attendance model being used by the district. Please note: These are supplies for students who are not enrolled in Virtual Academy. These lists are for children enrolled in the traditional model only.
We are excited to share the kickoff to our school year by announcing the dates for our Meet the Teacher events. This year, we will be meeting our students and families virtually. This will certainly be a new, yet exciting experience for all of us. More details will be shared with you during the week of August 10th but please mark these dates on your calendar.

Summer is one of the best times for reading. We challenge all Summit Drive students to:
Electronic registration (EDP Registration Form) and fee payment (My Schoolbucks) is now available. If you do not have access to electronic payment, you may mail a check to the school or pay the registration fee in August.
Starting now, families can access virtual healthcare options simply by logging onto their child’s school-issued Chromebook. Greenville County Schools has opened access to telehealth services with Prisma Healthcare on student Chromebooks. Students and families will be able to access these services using MDLive.com through Prisma Health’s MyChart portal from now through the end of the school year, or whenever students return their Chromebooks.

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education. Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.
These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates.
If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
