6th grade parents, please remember to schedule the Tdap vaccine now. South Carolina law states that ALL students are required to have the Tdap vaccine BEFORE they enter 7th grade. Once your child has the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the vaccination record to the school. After June 30, 2022, all vaccines must be provided on an official South Carolina immunization form in order to be accepted for school.

As we are preparing for the next school year's registration, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. Also, keep in mind that the final report cards are mailed at the end of the school year. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school. If you have moved or will be moving, please email Sherry Coleman, our Registrar, at shecoleman@greenville.k12.sc.us or call 864-355-5604.

If your child will have a change in transportation status for next year, please complete and submit the 2022-23 Transportation Request Form. Completed forms should be sent to the school no later than May 1. Access the English/Spanish for the 2022-23 Transportation Request Form.

Early registration for our Extended Day Program (EDP) is now open. Please use the link on our website to access the EDP Handbook and EDP Registration link.

Any 7th or 8th grade students interested in taking a Virtual Summer Course for high school credit, please complete the application. Contact your counselor with questions. Access the Summer Virtual Application.

6th grade parents, please go ahead and schedule the Tdap vaccine now. Once your child has the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the immunization form to school.

Please pick up medications from the Health Room by June 1. Medication must be picked up by an adult and may be picked up during school hours daily 8:00 - 3:00 PM. If you need to arrange another time for pick-up of your student’s medication, please contact Nurse Catherine.

Parents, please make sure student clothing abides by our school dress code. We are seeing shorts and skirts that are too short. Tops should also cover the mid-drift area of the body. The latest time for an early dismissal is 2:30 PM. Students are reminded to bring their Student ID daily and have them on prior to entering the building. If a student needs a replacement ID, please send in $5. Students should also charge Chromebooks nightly so there is a full charge for the entire school day.

Tdap Requirement for Rising 7th Graders

South Carolina law states that ALL students are required to have the Tdap vaccine BEFORE they enter 7th grade. This means that your 6th grader should get the vaccination during his/her annual doctor visit this year. The Tdap vaccine can be obtained at your primary health care provider, the Health Department, or various walk-in clinics.

Please make sure your student has the Tdap vaccine this year and have the vaccine certificate sent to school as soon as it is completed. If your child already had the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the DHEC South Carolina immunization form to the school to ensure that we have it on record. Your child will not be able to attend the 7th grade, or pick up a schedule the week before, until we have this form on record at school. Please note that vaccine records after June 30, 2022,  can only be accepted if it is on the official DHEC SC immunization form. Thank you for your help. Please feel free to call the GMA health room with any questions.
