Three-Hour Delay for Friday Morning

icon: cancelled

Due to precipitation, combined with a black ice advisory and forecast freezing temperatures in the overnight hours, Greenville County Schools will operate on a 3-hour delay tomorrow, February 21. Bus routes will begin 3 hours later than normal and schools and offices will open to receive students 3 hours later than usual. Please be aware that depending on the results of an early morning assessment by the ICE team, school could still be cancelled. A final decision will be made and communicated to you by 7:00 AM.

The school day will conclude at its regular time. Most employees should arrive three hours later than normal; those employees who begin the work day after 11:00 AM should report at their regular time. Students will not attend morning classes for the Career Centers or Fine Arts Center.

Regardless of our morning decision, please use caution when traveling, particularly on secondary roads, bridges, and in shady areas.

Student Safety First: Pick-up and Drop-off

icon: safe zone signMauldin Middle School strives to provide a safe learning environment for students. To ensure student safety, there are some simple things we are asking for help with from parents during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times.

Morning Drop-OffDrop-off time for students begins at 7:30 AM. Students who are dropped off prior to that time are not monitored by the school, and are not allowed into the school building. This presents a potentially dangerous situation for unattended minors. Parents who arrive with students prior to 7:30 AM are asked to wait with their student until the building is opened, or to talk with the front office about how to have their child ride the school bus in the mornings.

Afternoon Pick-Up: Students should only be picked up at their designated drop-off car loop at dismissal time. Please do not pick up students in the business parking lots across the street. There is no designated cross-walk or crossing guard, which means students are attempting to cross 4 lanes of traffic (plus a turning lane) at a busy time of the day. This presents a very high safety risk for our students, your children, and drivers.

Additionally, do not park at Mauldin Elementary to pick up middle school students. Officers from the Mauldin Police Department will be warning parents not to park there and directing them to use the MMS car loops for student pickup.


Chromebook FAQ: Getting Online at Home

icon: world globe with unlocked padlock and WWWIs your student having trouble accessing certain websites at home, but they work fine at school? They probably just need to use the GCSD Authentication portal.

The GCSD firewall follows students on their Chromebooks and works even more strongly when students take the devices off of district property. If your student is having trouble accessing the internet on home or public wi-fi, it is because of this firewall. Students will often be able to access their email and Google Drive, but not much else when this is the case. To gain access, students must follow these steps to authenticate their wi-fi source.

If you have any other questions about student Chromebooks, their functionality, or are experiencing any problems, please visit our MMS Chromebooks page. You may also email our Technology Clerk, Mrs. Wylie, if you do not find what you're looking for on the site.


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.


Weekly Phone Message

icon: phoneAt the beginning of each week during the school year, parents, faculty and staff should expect to receive a recorded message from our Principal, Mrs. Greene, notifying you of school news and important information about the week ahead. If for any reason you miss this phone call and would like to access a typed copy of the message, you need only visit the Weekly Message page of our website.
