Epinephrine (SAVE) Act
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.
The Anaphylaxis Medication Authorization form must be completed by legal guardian and physician before medication
can be brought to school. You can download that form here.
The Parent Portal provides real-time access for parents to their child’s grades, attendance, assignments, and more.
Registering Your Child
CATCH stands for a Coordinated Approach To Child Health and is an evidence-based, coordinated school health program designed to promote physical activity, healthy food choices and the prevention of tobacco use in children.
The CATCH Programs cover kids from preschool through 8th grade and has been implemented in thousands of schools and after-school organizations across America and Canada.
By teaching children that eating healthy and being physically active every day can be FUN, the CATCH Program has
proven that establishing healthy habits in childhood can promote behavior changes that can last a lifetime
Parents are welcome to eat lunch with students. Parents and guests are asked not to bring fast food and carryout food
items in to eat with their children unless they preplan with the teacher to bring food for every child in the class.
