When students who have been recommended for summer school return to the classroom starting in June, certain safety protocols will be observed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Those protocols include:

  • Students will be seated 6-feet apart when possible. This will allow students who do not have mask waivers to remove their masks (if they choose) while seated for instruction. If 6-feet of social distancing is not possible, a minimum of 3-feet will be maintained, requiring masking of students without a waiver. (Parents may request waivers for summer school.)
  • Plexiglass pods will not be available for summer school.  A plexiglass barrier will be available for small-group instruction
  • All bus riders must wear a mask due to presidential executive order
  • Students are expected to adhere to hygiene protocols (handwashing and hand sanitizer) and respiratory etiquette i.e. cover mouth with tissue when sneezing
  • Water fountains will remain off.  Students are encouraged to bring water bottles
  • Volunteers and visitors will be allowed at principal’s discretion and are required to follow same procedures as GCS staff
  • See attachment for complete list

Students who have been invited to attend summer school have already been notified by their schools. Dates vary by school, but start as early as June 7 and go as late as July 22.  Classes will be held Monday through Thursday, as GCS buildings are closed on Fridays. The hours are 8:00-2:00 for elementary students (7:30-2:00 for students required to attend Read to Succeed), 8:30-12:30 for middle school students and 9:00-1:00 for high school students.

Bus transportation will be provided to students who need a ride to their assigned school.  Eight schools willnot hold summer school on site due to construction projects or system replacements (such as HVAC). Students from impacted schools will be transported to a nearby school for summer instruction.  The schoolsnot offering summer classes are:


East North Street (students to be transported to Lake Forest)

Heritage (to Slater Marietta) 

Robert E. Cashion (to Greenbrier)

Summit Drive (to Stone)


Berea (to Lakeview)

Greer (to Riverside)

Mauldin (to Fisher)
