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.

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.
