End of Year Pick-up & Drop-off Schedule

The district designated the week of June 1st for students to return school-owned materials, such as, Chromebooks, library books, sports uniforms, and instruments. This is also the time for students to pick up student-owned items left at the school.  Over the past two weeks, teachers collected student items from lockers and classrooms and placed them in labeled paper bags. These bags will be available for pick up when you return your school owned items. 

The pick-up / return process will use a designed drive-through model that follows the recommended safety protocols for social distancing.  Be prepared for the possibility of long lines during this process. 

I want to thank all of our families for your support and cooperation during this school closure and as we move forward to close out the year. Please review the procedures below.

School Enrollment for 2020-2021

Instructions for Completing Enrollment Packets

Spanish version: Enrollment Packet

Please scan & email the completed packet to Chris Greggs at cgreggs@greenville.k12.sc.us. It is important that all required documents listed on the Enrollment Information for Parents form are included with the submission of the completed enrollment form (copy of ID; birth certificate, Immunization; 2 current proofs of residence, etc....).
If you wish to complete an online enrollment packet, please visit Greenville County Schools FORMS and select the following: Student Enrollment Form, Home Language Survey, Student Transportation.

If your child’s last school attended is OUTSIDE of Greenville County Schools, the more information you are able to provide the speedier the process.  We will request school records, however, please be aware that if you do not have any documentation of school records, the enrollment process may take much longer.

Greenville County Schools Parent Message 4.22.20
This is Greenville County Schools with today’s update. You may have heard that South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced this morning that South Carolina schools will not return to in-person instruction, but will continue with eLearning through the end of the school calendar. The Governor based his decision in part on the challenges of maintaining social distancing in a school setting. Please be aware, as required by state law and contractual obligations, GCS will continue with lessons through the remainder of the scheduled school year. We will share more information later this week on returning paper packets from the first four weeks of eLearning. We know this is a difficult situation for almost everyone and we thank you for continuing to support your child’s learning, despite the many challenges of this time.

Parent Backpack

parent backpack logoParent Backpack is an online application that replaces the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  With Parent Backpack, you are able to view your child's grades, school attendance, lunch balance and any discipline incidents 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
