The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, recently approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to store supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for students with allergic reactions.
Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide Epi-pens for their children. These students will continue to have Allergy Action Plans/IHP developed by the school nurse.
Every Greenville County school has a school nurse and at least 10 first responders who are trained in Epi-pen administration in the case of allergic reactions.
Due to the weather there will be no soccer training Monday or Tuesday after school this week. Soccer will resume on Wednesday with the start of World Cup games. Weight training in the mornings will continue everyday Monday through Thursday 6:45-7:45 AM.

Each year, the ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) honor one male and one female 12th grade student in each Greenville County High School who are considered true “unsung heroes” in their schools. This award was created to recognize students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school. These students will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony for outstanding character and academic effort. Nominations are now being accepted for seniors at Mauldin High School. Click here to nominate a student. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2014.
