The following general principles will guide Greenville City Schools reopening for the fall 2021-2022 school year related to COVID-19:
• GCS will implement continued safety protocols to the highest degree possible.
• GCS work ongoing with the local health dept. to update and promote safety practices in the school buildings.
• GCS will be transparent with all stakeholders (staff, students, parents, and visitors) in that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy the school district facilities.
• The adopted school calendar for in-person education will remain in place as scheduled. Students will begin August 30, 2021.
After much consideration, the Greenville City School District has decided that masks/facial coverings will be optional for students and staff at Greenville City Schools to begin the 2021-2022 school year. This is optional in the buildings, at school events, and on school transportation.
