Greenville County Schools will have an eLearning day tomorrow, Friday, January 21. Schools and office buildings will be closed and all activities, including athletic events and field trips, are canceled. This decision was made after the District’s ICE (Inclement Conditions Evaluation) Team went out this afternoon and determined that there are numerous areas of hard-packed, frozen roads throughout the county making certain areas impassable for vehicles and buses. Road temperatures remain low, and forecasts call for freezing temperatures from 4 am on Friday to noon on Saturday, which can cause refreezing, black ice, and unsafe travel conditions across the county for students and staff.
Because we are an approved eLearning district, this day will not have to be made up and instruction will be provided through Google Classroom. Students will complete eLearning assignments later if they are unable to participate due to power outages, lack of internet service, or other barriers. Once operations resume, school personnel will begin rescheduling events as appropriate. In the meantime, GCS District personnel will continue to monitor conditions across the county and compare forecast models to determine when in-person school can safely resume. Please check local media, the district website, and the district’s social media for the latest information on school closings or delays.
