GCS Emergency Text Alerts

icon: text alertDue to changes in telecommunications laws, Greenville County Schools is now able to send emergency text messages to parents through the School Messenger system if their listed home phone number is text capable. If you are a parent who would like to receive emergency texts and currently have a landline listed as your home number, please fill out an Emergency Text Alert form and return it to our front office. If you already receive School Messenger communications on your text-enabled device, you do not need to fill out a form.

Emergency Alert Form | Formulario de alerta de emergencia

GCS does not send phone messages to families late at night or early in the morning, so a last-minute closing decision, especially one made early in the morning, is sometimes missed. Texting parents provides a less intrusive way to send emergency messages during these hours.

As always, the GCS website, social media platforms, and local media will be used to broadcast emergency messages.

 


Lost & Found

icon: lost & foundLost items aren't always gone for good. Students who have misplaced jackets, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, and other non-electronic items should check our Lost & Found room. It is open every Tuesday morning from 8:00-8:30 AM.

View our Lost & Found photo album to see if you spot something that's yours.

Please Note: If you have lost an electronic device (such as a wireless mouse, a phone, etc.), please check with the front office. If you lost a Chromebook, please check with Mrs. Wylie.

 


Have you moved?

icon: moving truckIf you have moved or will be moving, you must contact the Registrar to update your information. Two proofs of residency are required for address verification at all Greenville County Schools.

For further details, please email Kathy Monaghan or call her at 864-355-6774.

 


New Clear Bag Policy for Athletic Events

icon: MMS Clear BagGreenville County Schools has a new clear bag policy for home athletic events beginning this school year. Spectators will be permitted to carry one large clear bag (a gallon size Ziplock style bag or a 12" x 6" x 12" clear bag, plus a small clutch purse 4.5" x 6.5"). Mauldin Middle School's PTA sells approved clear bags in the School Store every morning for $5.00.

GCS is continually reviewing safety and security. Utilizing a screening process that includes a clear bag policy will enhance safety inside athletic venues and speed the screening process along. The clear bag is easily and quickly searched and greatly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign.
