HEALTH ROOM POLICIES
Students who become ill or injured at school should report to the Health Room.
If a student is required to take oral medication during school hours, only the school nurse or the designated office personnel will administer the medicine according to the directions on a medical form to be completed by the student’s doctor and parent/guardian.
Prescription medications must be kept in the health room and administered by the nurse. Any student possessing a prescription medication is subject to disciplinary action.
Legislation mandates that all students must present a valid South Carolina Certificate of Immunization upon enrolling in school. The Certificate of Immunization is placed on file in the Guidance office. Greenwood High School cannot enroll a student without the required immunization information on file at the school.
Greenwood School District 50 schools participate in annual health screenings as recommended by South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control. The school nurse and trained volunteers perform screenings which include height, weight, blood pressure readings, vision, hearing, and dental screenings. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please notify the school nurse in writing at the beginning of the school year.
