Gettys Middle is honoring our history as we wear the maroon and gold of Easley Junior High School established in 1962. In 1994, EJHS was renamed and restructured to the middle school concept and became our Richard H. Gettys Middle School.
This afternoon GMS had a drain issue near the car loop pick-up area and bus loop. We diverted Release Time classes to the main lobby entrance for their bus pick-up times. The issue was addressed, tested and cleaned by district staff and Easley Combined Utility staff. We are approved for a safe and regular school dismissal.
