Please join us for a New Parent Orientation on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 20 at 8:00am in the BV Cafeteria. Coffee and light refreshments will be served. Feel free to drop your child(ren) in car line and then park. Or you may park and bring your children up to the school doors. But you must check into the office on arrival.
The Parent Backpack is a new online application developed by the Greenville County Development Team to replace the PowerSchool Parent Portal. This central location allows you to view your child’s grades, attendance, and discipline incidents.
CLICK HERE for a training video on how to set up an account!
Then go to https://parents.gcsbackpack.com/ to signup and associate your child(ren) to your account.
After you have setup your account and requested your child(ren) be added to the account, you must verify your identity with your child’s school by bringing your ID to the front office. If you have multiple children at different schools, you must visit each school to verify your identity.

It takes a village to raise a child and an entire community to make a school “Someplace Special.” Every year, the students of Buena Vista benefit from the strong tradition of parents, grandparents, and members of the community who are willing to give their time to support our programs and, most importantly, our children.
The Buena Vista PTA simply could not do all the amazing things it does without a lot of help. We have a place for every member of our school community whether you are a stay-at-home parent, a parent who works part-time or full-time outside the home, or even a grandparent who is retired. You can check out the Volunteers section of our website for an overview of some of those opportunities.
Last year, the Greenville County School District established new guidelines for volunteers. Anyone who wants to help out in any school in the county has to submit an application for either a Level 1 or a Level 2 volunteer clearance. Please visit our Volunteer Approval Process page for more information on how to get approval to volunteer in our schools.
