GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Officials with Greenville County Schools said that business would go on as usual Thursday following a day dampened by severe weather in the Upstate.

Elizabeth Brotherton with the school district said no storm damage at any Greenville County School would interfere with normal operations tomorrow.

Brotherton did share that Woodmont High School received damage from the storm, noting that several windows on the back side of the school near the gym were broken. Brotherton added that the windows had been temporarily repaired, but in an abundance of caution, the school's gym would remain closed until further inspection could be conducted in daylight.

School officials said two greenhouses on Woodmont High School property also sustained significant damage during the storm, as well as the tennis courts and baseball field.

Brotherton e-mailed this update Thursday morning:

GCS is fully operational today.  We are rerouting buses to avoid road closures as needed. At this time there are no schools without power. 

Schools will work with families whose house or commute is affected by the storm. Families are urged to use caution and contact their school administrator with questions or concerns.
