Student Speakers at School-Sponsored Activities
The School District of Greenville County is committed to maintaining an educational environment in which students of all backgrounds, beliefs and religions are welcome and treated with equal dignity and respect. The District will neither advance nor inhibit religion. In accord with the United States Constitution, the District protects private expression, including religious expression, by individual students as long as that expression does not create a disruption to or interfere with the educational environment.

Student speakers at school-sponsored activities, including graduations, may not be selected on a basis that either favors or disfavors religious speech. Where student speakers are selected on the basis of genuinely neutral, evenhanded criteria and retain primary control over the content of their expression, that expression is not attributable to the school and therefore may not be restricted because of its religious or secular content. In contrast, where school officials determine or substantially control the content of what is expressed, such speech is attributable to the school and may not include prayer or religious content. A school, however, may prevent or remove a speaker if the content of their speech is obscene, contrary to the District’s behavior code or substantially disruptive to the school environment.
Important Message from the Health Room!!!
Thank you for providing your child's medication for administration at school. The last day of attendance for students is June 5, 2015. School District policy requires the school nurse to destroy medications that are not picked up at the end of the school year. If your child's medications are not picked up by June 5, 2015 by 12:00 noon, the school nurse will have to destroy them. For safety reasons we cannot send medications home with students. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school nurse at 864-355-4407.

Blythe Academy Earns International Award!!!

Blythe Academy has been named International Spanish Academy Elementary School of the Year!

The award was formally presented on May 23, 2013 at the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C.  From left to right, Ambassador Ramon Gil-Casares, Dr. Griffin, and Xavier Gisbert da Cruz.

IMPORTANT:  Sign In Procedure Update
Effective immediately.....

It is now District policy that all visitors/volunteers/guests to our buildings must be signed in by an office person and must have either a visitor or volunteer badge displayed on their body in plain sight at all times.

As a reminder, visitors and guests must present photo ID.  Please be patient as there may be some delays in getting everyone checked in during peak times, especially first thing in the morning so you may want to consider arriving a few minutes early.

Thank you for your support as our school implements this new policy for the continued safety of our children, their teachers, the staff and volunteers at Blythe Academy.
Health Room Policy Changes
Beginning in August 2010 - Due to changes in South Carolina policies governing the administration of prescription medication, we will no longer have a 10 day grace period before written physician authorization is required for all prescription medications.
 
  • Parents are required to bring prescription medication to school and provide Form MED-1 before any prescription medication may be left at the school.
     
  • If your child must self-administer medication at school Form MED-2 is required before medication is brought to school.
     
  • A  parent may provide written authorization for over-the-counter medication to be kept and administered in the health room using Form MED-3.

All Health Services procedures and guidelines and these forms are available at http://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/gcsd/depts/stuserv/health.asp
