Listen to the Principal's Weekly Message
Parents who need to change their child’s color group due to childcare issues or transportation should complete the form below. Revising student groups is a very complex process, so please use this option only if necessary. Changes are based on space availability on buses and classroom capacity in the school, taking social distancing into consideration. Please allow a few days for changes to be processed.
Virtual School Families: many of you have been asking for the Virtual Academy School Supply list. You may find it with this link
Once a Topcat, always a Topcat!
Hi Taylors Families! Thank you for your patience as we have been working on Supply Lists. Two helpful items will be a personal water bottle and earbuds/headphones. We will only have bottle refill water stations (no traditional water fountains). We would recommend personalizing the bottle with your child's name (tape and/or Sharpie style marker works great!) The second is Earbuds/Headphones.
As always, if you need any assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Rhodes or one of our school counselors.
The links below will provide information for parent guidance and resources as we return to school.
LEAP Day 2020 RSVP for Taylors Elementary
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.
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.
*PLEASE COMPLETE THE ENTIRE FORM REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOUR STUDENT WILL ATTEND LEAP OR NOT. WE NEED EVERY STUDENT TO COMPLETE THIS FORM. COMPLETE A SEPARATE FORM FOR EACH STUDENT. FORMS SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY MONDAY, AUGUST 10TH.
Attention parents, school meals will be available for all students in all school opening scenarios, including the 100% eLearning option and for those that register for the Virtual Program.
In order to qualify for free or reduced meals parents must complete a new free and reduced meal application for the current school year.
The online Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications are now available for the 2020-2021 school year and can be accessed on our website at http://greenville.schoollunchapp.com
While paper applications will be provided for parents when they returned to school, the online applications are by far the most accurate and efficient method to apply for Free or Reduced Priced Meals. On average, online applications are processed within 24-48 hour of completion. We highly encourage all parents to take advantage of this simple to use and fast process.
For more information regarding Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications please contact the Food and Nutrition Services office at 355-1251 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please help us spread the word to your family and friends so that these meal benefits can be secured.

Here is a link to the new 2020-21 online transportation request form. We are asking for a completed form for all students so we can efficiently plan for how students will arrive and depart our campuses daily. It is particularly important for students who have moved or changed schools to have a form completed. Car riders, walkers, bicyclists, and daycare bus riders are also required to complete this form. In order to ensure school bus transportation on the first day of school, forms are due by July 15th. School bus requests submitted after July 15th will not be routed until after Labor Day in the order they were received.
Please complete the highlighted link at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your help in planning for next school year.
Due to moving the students’ start time to 7:45 AM, elementary schools’ office hours will be 7:00 AM – 3:45 PM beginning this fall.
Hours for students will be 7:45 AM to 2:15 PM.
