DHEC COVID Isolation & Quarantine Update

DHEC has issued new requirements that reduce the length of time for COVID-19 isolations and quarantines. Greenville County Schools is required by law to follow DHEC’s direction on quarantine and isolations, and we are updating our processes to reflect the changes outlined below. We are pleased that these updates will further reduce the time that students and employees are excluded from school and work while still keeping everyone’s safety and health a top priority. The district sent out a phone message to notify families of this DHEC COVID isolation and quarantine protocols change.  Please review these updates.

On January 12, 2022, GCS announced that following policy from the CDC, at-home COVID Tests will be accepted for those students that wish to return early from quartantine from an exposure.

8th Grade Job Shadowing

8th Grade Job Shadowing Day is on Friday, February 11th. This is a day where 8th graders and parents work together to schedule an experience to visit a job site and spend time with an adult in a career area in which they are interested. The student will have to be transported to the location and will be at the location all day instead of coming to school. To be excused for the entire day, the students must complete the following 2-part process:


1) Print the attached parent permission form, complete it, and turn it in to Mrs. Crisman before Friday, February 4th.  (Copies are available in the front office)

2) Complete the attached student  survey and submit it by Friday, February 4th.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Crisman at jcrisman@greenville.k12.sc.us, or call 864-355-8485. Thank you and have a great shadowing experience!


COVID Testing Sites

Starting Monday, September 13, 2021, Greenville County Schools, in coordination with DHEC and MAKO Medical Laboratories, will provide free drive through COVID testing exclusively for Greenville County School students and employees.   The three locations are Fountain Inn High School, MT Anderson Support Center, and Northside Park.  There is no appointment necessary.  Students are asked to present their school issued ID or chromebook upon check-in.   While it may be disappointing that other family members cannot access this resource, the restriction of this opportunity helps ensure a quick result turnaround time (usually within 24 hours) for our students and a streamlined process for students eligible for the newly instated “Early Return from Quarantine” protocols.  Please review the district’s information flyers attached to this announcement and also found on the GCS website.

If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please submit your nomination through the attached link: www.coaches4character.com/ace-awards.  All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2022 An ACE Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award.  One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County.

Parent Backpack

parent backpack logoParent Backpack is an online application that has replaced the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  With Parent Backpack, you are able to view your child's grades, school attendance, lunch balance and class schedules when you are logged into the system. Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly.   Parents are reminded that once they have created their online Parent Backpack account, they must link their students using their Student ID (found on their progress report, report card, or class schedule).  After this process is complete, parents must then visit their child’s school and present their government issued photo ID in order for the school to approve their pending request.
Parents will find Parent Backpack on the GCS Portal Page GCS portal logo
