During state testing days (May 17 & 23), field days (May 25 & 26) & the final week of school (May 30– June 2) our lunch schedules will be altered. Therefore, we will not be able to have visitors for lunches on these days. Thank you for your understanding.
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a school meal funding option from USDA that enables a school to provide free meals to all students, without the necessity of completing applications for individual eligibility. CEP status is determined by the percentage of students from households receiving public benefits.
This year, CEP in South Carolina has expanded to include students who receive Medicaid benefits, which will enable 82 GCS schools to qualify for the 2023-24 school year. This is a significant increase from the 21 GCS locations that have been CEP schools since 2015.
This include Tigerville Elementary School. Please visit the GCS website for more details. | GCS School Wide Free Lunch Program 2023-24 Info

The final 2023-24 and 2024-25 student calendars have been released on the Greenville County Schools website. Students will start the new school year on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. The last day of school will be Wednesday, May 22, 2024.
GCS is releasing two years of calendars for the first time this year. Moving forward, the district’s Calendar Committee will provide a recommendation for an annual calendar two years in advance so families will have two years of school calendars to use for planning purposes.
The calendars reflect a shift of starting and ending one week earlier to allow the fall academic semester to end prior to winter break. This adjustment will be academically beneficial to students since midterms, finals and state testing will be completed before students leave for winter break, rather than in January when they return to school after an extended break. Before approving the calendars, GCS requested feedback from parents and guardians, and the feedback received was extremely positive with 74% of respondents in favor. The district also received feedback from students and staff through the review process that happens each year. GCS appreciates everyone who took the time to provide valuable feedback.
Please note that schools will work with students’ families who have previously scheduled, paid commitments that were made prior to when the final calendars were released on December 14, 2022. Families will need to provide documentation of those commitments. Please reach out to the front office if you have a conflict that you need to work through.
The calendars, details about the feedback that was received, and answers to frequently asked questions are available on the GCS website. | GCS Student Calendars Released 2023-24 and 2024-25
