Medication Administration Policy

When possible, medications should be given to students before or after school by the parent or guardian. Medication must be provided to the school by the parent or guardian in the original container with proper labeling. No medications should be sent with children on the bus. Prescription medications will only be administered within the limits of the prescribing healthcare provider's written and signed order (click below).

Vaccine and Immunization Requirements

In order to protect all children from vaccine-preventable diseases, South Carolina Law (Section 44-29-180) does NOT permit schools to allow students to remain in attendance without proper documentation of immunization status. If you have any questions about your child’s immunization documentation, please contact the school nurse.

 

South Carolina SAVE Act

Pursuant to Section 59-63-95, a recent Amendment to the South Carolina Code of Laws, Lexington School District Three observes the SAVE (Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine) Act. This law allows our district to "stock" Epinephrine Auto-Injectors for use in cases of unidentified severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) or Epinephrine Auto-Injector malfunction. If a child has a known or medically diagnosed severe allergy, it is the still the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide the prescribed emergency medication.
