Public Service Announcement: Greenville City and Cell Phones
City of Greenville Distracted Driving Ordinance Begins Tuesday, April 1 - Greenville City Council recently passed an ordinance banning distracted driving in the city of Greenville. The ordinance, which goes into effect April 1, specifically prohibits the use of hand-held mobile devices while operating a vehicle, which includes not only while the vehicle is in motion, but also while the vehicle is temporarily stopped due to traffic, a traffic control device or other delays, such as waiting in a carpool line. The ordinance does, however, permit drivers to use mobile devices while operating a vehicle, as long as they can be used hands free. In this case, hands free means that the driver is not holding a mobile device up to or near his or her ear to talk or listen, and that the driver is not holding a mobile device in his or her hand(s) and manipulating the keyboard or the screen.
TDAP Requirement for Sixth Graders
6th grade students are required to have a Tdap injection prior to next school year. If the student had this immunization on or after his/her 7th birthday he/she will need to provide a valid SC immunization record to the school nurse. Let's get rolling on this requirement as soon as possible to prevent attendance problems next school year due to non-compliance. Questions please call Teresa Reid, RN @ 355-5807 between 8:30 and 3:30 Monday-Friday.
