Notes from Mr. Bruce

Note from the Principal

Parents and Guardians, please review the following expectations with your student regarding Attendance, Cell Phones/Electronic Devices, and Dress Code for the 2024-25 school year.

 

ATTENDANCE

It is important to note that students must present a written excuse, signed by a parent/legal guardian or a medical professional, for all absences within 3 days of the student’s return to school. The written excuse should include the reason for and the date of absence. Without a valid written excuse, the absence will be recorded as unlawful. Absences in excess of 10 days will not be considered excused with a parent/guardian note unless accompanied by official medical documentation or approved by the principal. These updates are in effect for the 2024-25 school year and can be reviewed in the student handbook or on the Greenville County Schools website. Please reach out to me with any questions by contacting the front office. 

CELL PHONES/ELECTRONIC DEVICES

In an effort to maximize academic instruction, limit electronic device distractions, and to provide more consistency and clarity for parents and students, we are providing our updated Cell Phone and Electronic Devices expectations, which were implemented last year and are still in effect for the 2024-25 school year. This information is in our student handbook and can be found on the homepage of our website. Please reach out to me with any questions by contacting the front office. 

DRESS CODE

In an effort to increase alignment in discipline and dress code practices between schools and to provide more consistency and clarity for parents and students, we are providing a flier which will give guidance for the 2024-25 school year dress code. Dress code specifications and violation consequences are detailed in the flier which can be found on the homepage of our website. These changes are in effect for the 2024-25 school year. Please reach out to me with any questions by contacting the front office. 

Thank You,

Daniel Bruce

Attendance Policy Changes

Parents and Guardians, 


In accordance with the South Carolina Compulsory School Attendance law, the School District of Greenville County has uniform rules to ensure that students attend school regularly. Each day that students are not in school, they miss hours of valuable instruction and opportunities for learning that they will not have again. Students are counted present only when they are actually in school, on homebound instruction, or are present at an activity authorized by the school principal. A student is considered in attendance when present for at least three (3) hours of a school day.


Students must present a written excuse, signed by a parent/legal guardian or a medical professional, for all absences within 3 days of the student’s return to school. The written excuse should include the reason for and the date of absence. Without a valid written excuse, the absence will be recorded as unlawful. Absences in excess of 10 days will not be considered excused with a parent/guardian note unless accompanied by official medical documentation or approved by the principal. 


Attendance information is available at Greenville County Attendance Policy.
