Greenbrier County Schools

 


 



Dear Students & Families,

Successful people, regardless of occupation or walk in life, evaluate lessons learned from their experiences, good and bad, as opportunities for positive growth and development -- a chance to become more effective leaders and positive influences on their family, friends, colleagues, and community. 

On March 13, 2020, the stark reality of the COVID-19 pandemic blindsided us, resulting in our schools’ immediate closure and the transition to a remote teaching and learning model. School traditions and experiences long-cherished had to be canceled, leaving us all with a sense of sadness and disappointment for events and experiences that can never be recaptured.

This pandemic has shaken all of us to the core, but there is no doubt that the character and resolve of Greenbrier County citizens will lift us out of this adversity with a shared vision and unity. We will recover, and we will be all that much better because of it.

While obstacles and challenges remain, new opportunities have emerged. Rest assured, the commitment of Greenbrier County Schools to educational excellence remains unchanged.

It is a privilege to serve Greenbrier County as the Superintendent of Schools during this unprecedented time. Please feel free to call on me with your questions, concerns, or to request assistance.


Respectfully,

Jeff Bryant

Kindergarten enrollment


Greenbrier County Schools (GCS) will host kindergarten registration on two dates and locations for children who will be five years old before July 1, 2022. Students currently enrolled in a GCS Pre-K program will automatically be enrolled in Kindergarten in their home school district; therefore, parents of GCS Pre-K students will not need to attend a registration session.


GCS will conduct Kindergarten early-entrance testing in June 2022. To be eligible for this early-entrance evaluation process, a child must be five (5) years old between July 1 and September 15, 2022. Results of the tests and evaluations must provide evidence that the child not only has sufficient intellectual maturity but must also show social, emotional, and physical maturity to function within the academic setting.

Parents may contact Nancy Hanna, Associate Superintendent, at 304-647-6470 by

May 31, 2022, to request an appointment for kindergarten early-entrance testing.
