School Closings

How will I know if the schools have been closed?

• Check the GCS website at www.greenville.k12.sc.us
• Tune to local radio and television stations, including The Schools Channel on Charter Cable 14 and 99
• Call INFOLine at 355-3100

With the onset of winter, inclement weather prevails. Snow and ice can cause school closings, delayed openings, and early dismissals. When the weather is severe, always check the radio or television stations for emergency school announcements. Official announcements about Greenville County School System closings will be broadcast on WYFF-TV (channel 4) and Charter Cable Channels 14 or 99. You can also call the school districts INFOLine at 355-3100 or click here to check the Greenville County Schools website. Decisions to close schools will be made on a daily basis by 6:00 am each morning.

When schools are on a two-hour delay, No breakfast will be served.  Buses will run two hours later than their normal times.  School will begin two hours later than the regularly scheduled time.  Instead of 8:00, the tardy bell will ring at 10:00.  Please note that students will not be supervised until 9:30 when there is a two-hour delay.

On rare occasions, developing weather may make early dismissal of school necessary. Should the weather become bad during school hours, you should listen to the radio or TV stations for instructions.  DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL.  Our telephone lines need to be kept open so that we can receive instructions from the District Office.  Parents whose children ride the bus home will need to stay up-to-date on possible closings by calling the INFOLine or checking the school districts website. Children who ride home with their parents will be supervised by adults at the school until they are picked up by their parents.  Parents should discuss plans for early dismissal (pickup, supervision, etc.
