Greenville County Schools released the 2021-22 student calendar on Tuesday, announcing the district is doing away with "snow days" and building on e-learning.
Students will start the new school year on Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2021, and the last day of school will be Friday, June 3, 2022.
GCS will automatically operate under the e-learning attendance plan if school buildings are closed on a regular attendance day.
The former makeup days have been added to the calendar to create additional long weekends for students, including a long weekend around the Easter holiday, April 15-18, 2022.
The last day of school before Winter Break will be Friday, Dec. 17, and the first day back will be Monday, Jan. 3.
Spring break is slated for March 21 to 25, 2022.
The day before winter break (Dec. 17) and the last two days of school (June 2-3) will be half-days for students.
Other holidays include Labor Day (Sept. 6), Thanksgiving Break (Nov. 24-26), Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 17), Presidents Day (Feb. 21) and Memorial Day (May 30). In addition, students are out of school on four professional development/teacher workdays (Oct. 18-19, Jan. 14, and March 18).
