Starting Monday, November 28, there will be free, drive-through testing for both Flu and Covid-19 provided at three locations. GCS students, employees, and their household contacts can get tested. Results will be provided in approximately 1 hour. An important change from last year: parents and employees are responsible for reporting any positive results directly to the school or their supervisor. DHEC has again contracted Mako Medical to administer the testing, and the three sites are the same as last year: Fountain Inn High School, MT Anderson Support Center, and Northside Park.
There are some notable changes from the process last year:
They will test for both Flu and Covid-19: one swab, two tests. In addition to GCS students and employees, household contacts of both students and employees can get tested at these sites for free. Results will be provided in approximately 1 hour. It is the parent’s responsibility to report positive results to the school, and employees must report positive results to their supervisor. GCS will not be automatically alerted to the results.Pre-registering will help expedite the testing process. Be sure to check the flyer before going to a site. The flyer will reflect the latest information and reflect any updates such as changes in hours, location closures, etc.
GCS is proposing a shift to the student calendar, so students will start and end the year one week earlier. GCS is sharing two years of draft calendars and seeking parent input on the proposed student calendars. To view the proposed calendars and learn more, visit Greenville County Schools' website. Parents can offer feedback through December 1st by emailing email@example.com.
Woodmont Middle School will be having a canned food drive for the weeks of November 14 to December 9, sponsored by Beta Club and Student Council, We will be collecting cans and other food items for the food banks in our area. We will collect cans as a competition for the Clemson-Carolina games. The cans will be collected in LIFT classes/homeroom classes. Student Council and Beta Club members in that homeroom class will keep track of how many cans each class collects. The homeroom that collects the most cans will earn a treat at the end of the food drive. Since this is a competition for the Clemson- Carolina game, the students who bring in the cans will designate which team they want their cans to go to. Will Clemson or Carolina come out on top? Our Food Banks in the community do appreciate these donations. Thank you for all of your help in supporting this project. If you have any questions see Ms. Schwieger or Mr. Bagwell.

If your child rides the bus, it will take about 2 weeks to get your child routed and you will be notified when they can start riding the bus. If they are a car rider then they can start the program from the time they sign up. In this program we offer extra help, math intervention, and reading intervention. Below is the Google Form to get your child signed up. Please contact Samaria Hannah or Mairin McLeer for additional information. We look forward to having your child participate!
