If a prescription or over-the-counter medication is necessary during the school day, a parent should bring the medicine to school in a pharmacy labeled bottle. A school medical form must be completed and given to the school official responsible for administering the medication.
A Health Clinic is provided for students at our school by Registered Nurses from the Irwin County Health Department.
Vision and Hearing
Visual and hearing screening for students are available at the request of the parents.
Special Health Needs
If your child has a special documented health need or problem, this should be communicated to the teacher and school nurse. (This information is kept confidential.) In cases that warrant specific precautions or emergency procedures, an individual protocol will be developed by a team consisting of the nurse, RTI, teachers, and parents/guardians.

The hotline hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; after 5 p.m. all calls will be forwarded to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Callers will not be asked to reveal their identities. Make the call; you can make a difference!
