The Mauldin Middle School Health Room is open every school day from 8:00 AM - 3:15 PM.
It is staffed by one Registered Nurse (RN) and one Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).
All medication must be delivered to the School Nurse or other designated school employee by the student’s parent, legal guardian, or a previously designated adult. It is against School District Policy for a student to carry any medication on their person without physician, parent, and school district permission to self-administer and self-monitor (SC Law S144). All medication will be maintained in the Health Room. Violations of the medication policy are dealt with sternly. Medication needed on field trips is also covered by this policy and must be given to and administered by an employee of Greenville County Schools designated by the Principal. There are separate permission forms for medications on field trips.
Parents are required to bring prescription medication to school and provide the proper forms before any prescription or over-the-counter medication may be left at school. Please print forms and return to the MMS Health Room before sending medications to school with students.

Effective as of the 2013-2014 school year, all 7th grade students must have a Tdap vaccination. Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).
Parents do not have to wait until 7th grade. Children as young as seven years old may be vaccinated.
