Important Medication Information
Spring has sprung...So has allergy symptoms.We have had a large number of student come to the health room with allergy type symptoms. Those can include, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore, scratchy throat, headache. If the student does not have a fever greater than 100 we do not have to send them home with these symptoms. There are many good over the counter solutions available to combat seasonal allergies. Your child's physician is the best resource for what is the most appropriate medication to be used. If you need to send a medication to school, we need to have the proper paperwork filled out. There is also absolutely no medication on the bus. If your child comes to school with a medication, prescription or non-prescription they may have administrative discipline. This is district policy that will be enforced. If you have questions please call Mrs. Neely or Mrs. Edwards at 355-5807.

Clinics offered in all GCS middle schools
Parents are reminded that rising seventh and eighth grade students must have the Tdap vaccination or they must submit an objector’s statement to their child’s school for students to attend school prior to the first day of school in August.
The Tdap vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). State Law began the requirement for the Tdap vaccination in the 2013-14 school year.
Greenville County Schools will partner with the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to provide Tdap clinics at all 20 GCS middle schools between Monday, April 13 and Friday, April 24. Contact your child’s school for specific dates and times.
Consent to Vaccinate forms will be sent home with all sixth grade students the week of March 2. The properly completed form must be returned to the school nurse by Thursday, March 12 if you would like for your child to receive the vaccine.
