Information for Bus Riders
Parents, starting Monday, August 28th, bus riders will follow a new procedure in the afternoon. When they enter the cafeteria at 3:40, bus number signs will be on tables that designate areas for them to sit in. An administrator holds the sign, indicating the bus is outside and ready to load. It is the student's responsibility to do two things:
- quickly find their table when the bell rings and have a seat
- remain there so they know when their bus arrives and do not miss it.
Thank you for your assistance communicating this new bus procedure with your student.
Make Up Pictures for 9th - 11th Grades Scheduled for September 12

Dress Code 2023-2024
Greenville County Schools Dress Code
Students are expected to dress and be groomed in such a way as to not distract or cause disruption in the educational program or orderly operation of the school. Personal appearance of students should promote health and safety, contribute to a climate conducive to teaching and learning and project a positive image of the District to the community. Students should dress for the educational setting and not the recreational one. The principal may create further guidelines regarding student dress which are consistent with the guidelines below.
- Clothing and/or hair should not be so extreme or inappropriate to the school setting as to disrupt the education process. Therefore, clothing deemed distracting, revealing, overly suggestive or otherwise disruptive will not be permitted.
- Wearing accessories or clothing that could pose a safety threat to oneself or others is not allowed.
- Hats and sunglasses may not be worn in the building.
- Attire must not evidence membership or affiliation with a "gang" in any negative sense of the term.
- Proper shoes must be worn at all times.
- Attire must not be immodest, obscene, profane, lewd, vulgar, indecent or offensive.
- Clothing that inappropriately exposes body parts is not permitted. Students shall not expose undergarments.
- Pants must be worn at the natural waistline and undergarments are not to be visible. Pants and slacks must not bag, sag, or drag.
- No clothing, jewelry, or tattoos are permitted that display profanity, suggestive phrases, or advertisements for, or messages or pictures depicting or suggesting alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or sex.
In the event the administration determines a student’s dress is inappropriate for school in accordance with this policy, the administration will either require the student to change or will inform the student not to wear the garment to school again.
Repeated violations of the dress code will be treated as disruptive behavior in violation of the District's Behavior Code.
