ILLNESS /MEDICINE: Nurse Ireland
Medication may not be administered without a written request from the parent on an Horry County Schools “Prescription or Non-prescription” Medication Form. The prescription medication form MUST be signed by the doctor prior to being administered at school. Also, aspirin may not be given at any time.
Prescription or Over the Counter medicines (Ibuprofen, Pamprin, etc.) must NOT be in the possession of a student at any time. All medicines must be kept in the school health room. Medicine must be given by the school nurse or a person designated by the Principal. The medication must be in the original container and appropriately labeled with instructions by the pharmacy or physician.
Medication in unlabeled containers will not be accepted. All parents are asked to make sure the school has all updated phone numbers and emergency contact names on file.
If a student becomes sick at school and cannot remain in class, the student must obtain a pass from his/her teacher and report to the health room. The nurse will contact the parent to pick up students who have a fever or are too ill to stay in school. Unnecessary visits to the health room are to be avoided. If an accident occurs, the school nurse or a staff member will give first aid and notify the parents. Any treatment beyond first aid is the responsibility of the parent.
* ALL RISING 7TH GRADERS MUST HAVE A TDAP BOOSTER BEFORE ENTERING 7TH GRADE.
