State Testing Continues

We will continue with state testing this week on Thursday. Please do you best to make sure students get a good night's sleep and get to school on time. We start testing at 8:30 and while the test is untimed, most students will be done by 11:00.


We ask parents to avoid early dismissals during this time as students cannot stop in the middle of a test.

See Something, Say Something

Parents,

The single most effective, preventative tool regarding school safety and security is the See Something, Say Something protocol, which every school in Greenville County utilizes. It is critically important that if students see or hear something that is concerning, they say something to a trusted adult or report it anonymously through our reporting system. Reports can be made by phone call, text, email or an online form, which are all accessed here: https://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/Parents/main.asp?titleid=bullying.


While Greenville County Schools has had this reporting system in place for many years, we recently updated the icon on student Chromebooks from a “no symbol” to the attached icon, which visually reflects the See Something, Say Something campaign. Your school will be sharing this update with students, but we want to make sure you as parents as aware of this update and know how to report something or direct your student to report something should it be needed. This update has been made on the Greenville County Schools website in multiple places (www.greenville.k12.sc.us), and it is currently being updated on all of our school’s websites. Thank you.
