Some items included in the meals will be ready to eat, and others will be heat and serve.  Meals are free for all students

Please complete this form EACH WEEK you would like your child(ren) to receive take-home meals.  You will need to submit one form for each week and one form per child attending WMS, but you can submit multiple weeks at one time for your convenience.  The number of meals sent home will automatically adjust based on attendance plans and any days GCS is not in attendance due to holidays.

Update Emergency Contacts

Parents/ guardians, your child's safety and well-being is our number one concern.  We need to ensure we have updated contact information for your child's primary and secondary contacts.  This information is important in case your child has an emergency, to notify you of updated COVID-19 information (including possible student exposures), and to communicate with you about your child's academic, social, and emotional well-being. 

Please log in to Backpack to double check your information OR take 3 minutes to complete this short survey.  We will cross-reference your responses with our records and ensure we have the most current information on file. 

If you know of friends or family who may not  have Internet access, please ask them to send a note with their child or call the school at 864-355-8500 to update their records. 

Thank you for your help!

COVID- 19 Reporting

Parents are asked to report any COVID-19 exposures as well as quarantines within the home to the school principal. 

The CDC recommends avoiding all non-essential travel and both the CDC and SC DHEC asks persons returning from international travel within the past 14 days to monitor their health, stay home as much as possible and wear a mask while in public.  Staff and students can return to school after U.S. or international travel provided they have not been knowingly exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms of illness, in addition to adhering to all precautionary measures in place at the school. 

Parents are strongly encouraged to screen their students daily, at home, for COVID-19 symptoms (see below). If a student takes a COVID-19 test because he/she is symptomatic, the student should not be physically present in school until the test results are returned.

Keep students at home if they present with any of the following symptoms:

Per DHEC regulations, any staff or student identified as having spent 15 minutes or more within six feet of a positive case are considered close contacts and will be excluded from school for a minimum of 14 days. Students and staff who were not close contacts will be allowed to remain at school. We will be sure and let you know if these notification requirements change.  Additional information is available on the GCS Parent Resource webpage.
