Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center. Children do not have to live in the school attendance area to pre-register at that location. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a GCS 4K program. Children selected for 4K programs must demonstrate academic/developmental needs and/or risk factors such as low family income and low parent education level. Screened children will be ranked district-wide and those most at-risk for school success will receive initial assignments.
Parents must present their child’s birth certificate, immunization certificate or religious exemption certificate, two proofs of residency (same as 5K) and photo ID. For more information contact 864-452-0437.
Parents may now sign up for parent backpack which will be replacing parent portal. You will need your student's school ID number to add your student once you have enrolled as the parent. The link below will guide you through the process.
All medication must be delivered to the School Nurse or other designated school employee by the student’s parent, legal guardian or a previously designated adult. It is against School District Policy for a student to carry ANY medication on their person without physician permission, parent permission and school district permission to self-administer and self-monitor (SC Law S144). All medication will be maintained in the health room. Medication required for field trips must be given to and administered by an employee of Greenville County Schools designated by the principal. There are separate permission forms for medications on field trips.
