To eliminate or alleviate health barriers that interfere with a student's ability to learn and to create a safe and orderly environment, thereby enabling students to become successful life learners.
The Health room is designed to assist students with chronic conditions and be an emergency station to care for minor injuries and illnesses that occur at school. Injuries or health concerns that occur outside of school should be treated at home or by your health care provider. The school nurse cannot diagnose or prescribe medications.

Please contact your child's school nurse for questions.24 Hour Rule - Please do not send your child to school with the following in the last 24 hours:
- Rash of unknown origin
- Persistent deep cough
- Strep throat
School Nurses use DHEC School Exclusion List as a guideline but check with your school nurse because CSD has a stricter policy on some health conditions such as fever. (Students with fever of 100 degrees or higher will be excluded and need to stay home until they are fever free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine.)Outside Normal School Hours
- School Nurses rarely go on FT.
- At least 2 weeks prior to FT notify school nurse of your child's special health care needs.
- Complete FT form.
- Prescription medication unless routinely taken during school hours will require a new Dr.'s permission. Pharmacy labels on medications are not considered Dr.'s permission.

FACTS: Head lice are: common among children ages 3-11.
not related to cleanliness/good hygiene.
spread by extended direct head to head contact.
. totally dependent upon a human host to live and typically die within 24 hours without one.
not a poublic health risk so there is no need to alert parents of lice cases.
Our district policy: is to send students home when there is presence of live lice.
prohibits readmission to school without evidence of treatment and must pass a head check that shows the absence of head lice.
It is not our district's practice to check the heads of all our students in a class or grade due to confidentiality. If a child is continually scratching his/her head, the teacher will discretely send the student for a head check.
WHAT PARENTS CAN DO: 4 EASY STEPS
1. Check your child's head periodically
2. Treat your child's head if lice are found.
3. Check all family member's heads and treat if indicated.
4. Retreat heads in 7-10 days (per manufacurer's recommendation) in the event nits have hatched.
