Teachers in Greenville County middle/high schools give careful consideration to student placement for the following year. Parents have the right to participate in the registration process and may override a teacher's recommendation in order to place their son or daughter in a different course and/or level.
Please note that the e-mail that is sent discussing the course recommendation with the current teacher must also be forwarded to the student's school counselor before processing the override request.
Parents/Guardians who wish to override a teacher's course recommendation must complete one form per course override request. The deadline to make this request is NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2020.

All medications need to be brought to the health room by an adult, not the student. It needs to be a new, unopened bottle and a form must be signed by the parents giving permission for the child receive the medication from the health room. I have been having a lot of kids bring me opened bottles of ibuprofen to hold in the health room recently and telling me their parents want them to take it. Students are not allowed to carry over the counter medications including cough drops at school. Parents will need to fill out a form to allow over the counter medication to be kept in the health room for student to access.
In our efforts to ensure that students only take what is intended by physician's/parents we must adhere to these processes. If you have questions please contact our nurse: Sherri Haldenwang 452-0307.
Illnesses are beginning to creep up in our area. Please remind your child to cover their cough, wash their hands frequently (especially after using the bathroom or blowing their nose).

· If your child is vomiting or has diarrhea, they should not attend school. They should be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school. They should also be able to eat 1-2 meals without vomiting before coming back to school.
· If you follow these policies, this should help prevent the spread of these illnesses.
