Medication Administration Policy
When possible, medications should be given to students before or after school by the parent or guardian. Medication must be provided to the school by the parent or guardian in the original container with proper labeling. No medications should be “sent with” children on the bus. Prescription medications will only be administered within the limits of the prescribing healthcare provider’s written and signed order.
When should my child stay home from school?
Vaccine and Immunization Requirements
In order to protect all children from vaccine-preventable diseases, South Carolina Law (Section 44-29-180) does NOT permit schools to allow students to remain in attendance without proper documentation of immunization status. If you have any questions about your child’s immunization documentation, please contact the school nurse.
