The Center for Community Services will remain closed tomorrow, Tuesday, December 11th.

Stay safe, and check back for our schedule on Wednesday.Greenville County Schools will remain closed on Tuesday, December 11, due to dangerous travel conditions and ongoing power outages, downed trees, and fallen power lines across the county and at GCS schools, offices, and bus centers. Though some snow and ice across the district is melting today, many secondary roads remain wet, slushy and/or blocked by downed trees and power lines. The ICE team reported many impassable secondary roads across the county due to downed trees and/or power lines.

The National Weather Service forecasts the temperatures in our area to drop below freezing tonight through mid-morning tomorrow. Thawing will be slow, given the amount of moisture on the roads. Multiple schools have been without power in excess of 24 hours, allowing the interior temperature to drop significantly. Though GCS maintenance crews have been working throughout the day, we continue to have trees down at some school locations, a collapsed awning due to the snow, and significant slush in a number of bus loops, car loops, and parking lots, which will be ice until at least midday on Tuesday.

Many thanks to all the maintenance crews and utility line workers who are working to get us up and running.

The missed days on Monday and Tuesday will be made up on 3/22/19 and 3/25/19.
