Parents please be advised that the following rules are in place and must be followed.
Your student will receive a packet during the first week of each school year that includes the Student Emergency Form. Please complete the form, date and sign it, and return it to the school. These forms are kept in the health room and used as a resource to contact parents/guardians during emergency situations.
A teacher or administrator pass is required, except in emergencies. The nurses make every effort to keep students in school, however, if it is determined your child is too sick to remain at school, a parent/guardian must be contacted for dismissal. Please note students will only be sent home with the following illnesses: active vomiting or diarrhea, fever, or an injury that requires further evaluation by a physician.

Please note if your student is injured or ill and requires short term use of the elevator, we need authorization from a Health Care Professional and the extent of how long it may be used, otherwise 2 weeks of use will only be permitted. Use beyond end date may be referred to administration.
Rising 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students must have the Tdap vaccination or their parent/guardian must submit an objector’s statement to their child’s school prior to the first day of school, Monday, August 20. If you would like to obtain a copy of your student's immunization record, please contact the guidance department. The health room does not store student records.
Students not meeting the Tdap vaccination requirement will not be allowed to attend school on the first day. Students new to Greenville County from other South Carolina counties or other states are granted a 30-day exemption from the date of the student’s enrollment.
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. The Tdap vaccination is given by health providers, many pharmacies, and the Greenville County Health Department. For additional information, please contact the Health Department at 282-4100.
