Greenville County Schools: Parents Need to Plan for eLearning on March 18th for Teacher Vaccination Clinics

Posted on | No Comments

Greenville County Schools have announced an eLearning day during teacher vaccination clinics. As South Carolina opened up the next phase of COVID-19 vaccinations, phase 1B, teachers are eligible – which means parents of students who are in-person need to plan for eLearning days on Thursday, March 18th as teachers and staff will need the time to physically go get the vaccine.

Note: GCS had previously announced the potential for eLearning day on Monday, March 22nd, 2021, but has since indicated that March 22nd will be a regular in-school day for students. An additional day may yet be announced, and GCS ensures parents they will provide as much notice as possible.

Teachers were eligible to receive the vaccine starting Monday, March 8th. As teachers and staff take the time to get their shots, GCS students will go to eLearning for two days.

Greenville County Schools are asking parents of students who attend school in-person to make plans for childcare on March 18th. Also note that March 19th is already scheduled as a teacher workday and a day off for students. March 19th could not be used as a vaccination day.

Lessons on eLearning Days

Students are not off of school on eLearning days. Teachers will be providing lessons and posting assignments.

If you have questions, email your child’s teacher or contact GCS.
