Health Services

Healthy Students Learn Better.

Recognizing that healthy students learn better, the Edgefield County School District has a licensed nurse in each school. The purpose of school nursing is to enhance the educational process by the modification of removal of health related barriers  to learning and by the promotion of an optimal level of wellness. School nurses accomplish these activities in partnership with students, parents, school staff, TeleHealth and the surrounding counties' medical community. 

All school nurses are licensed and attend annual in-service education directly related to student services. In addition, all nurses are American Heart Association certified in CPR and AED training.

If you have questions or concerns about your child's health or school nursing services, please contact your school nurse. It is especially important to report any illness  or condition that your child has that may require medical support during the school day.

Health Room Policy and Procedures

Medication Policy

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 ECSD policy for a student to carry ANY medication on their person without physician permission, parent permission and school district permission to self-administer and self-monitor (SC Law S144). All medication will be maintained in the health room. Medication required for field trips must be given to and administered by an employee of ECSD designated by the principal. There are separate permission forms for medication on field trips.
