• Medication Policy

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

    School nurses are not allowed to keep more than a 30-day supply of medication at school at any time. 

    We ask that whenever possible, you (parent/guardian) give your child his/her medication at home — before or after school. However, when medication must be given at school during the school day, we ask that you:

    ● Do not wait until the first day of school to bring your student’s medication or supplies to your child’s school. Instead, make an appointment to bring those medications to school with our school nurse, Courtney Fink, prior to the start of school. You can reach her at (803) 821-4023 or CFink@lexington1.net.

    ● Bring your student’s medication in its original container. It cannot be expired and must be accompanied by a completed medication permission form.

    To find these forms, visit our district website at www.lexington1.net. Once there, click on the “I AM …” tab on the list at the top. Now, choose “A Parent/Guardian.” Once there, you will see a link to “HEALTH.” You will find the form you need under Forms You May Need on that page.
