TES Announces Employees of the Year!
Recently, our new Teacher of the Year and Support Person of the Year were announced.  The new Teacher of the Year is Meghan Hollingsworth, and the new Support Person of the Year is Annie Lee.  Mrs. Hollingsworth has been teaching first grade for seven years here.  Her students are always happy and learning and she comes to school with a smile on her face daily.  Mrs. Lee has been the computer lab manager here for four years now.  She helps in any way she can, and does it with a smile and a sweet, loving attitude every time.  The students and staff at Townville Elementary are blessed to have Mrs. Hollingsworth and Mrs. Lee as teachers, friends, and co-workers.  Congratulations to both ladies!  What an acomplishment! 
Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act
The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, recently approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to store supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for individuals with unknown life-threatening allergic reactions, or anaphylaxis.
Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide epinephrine auto-injectors for their children at school. These students will continue to have Emergency Care Plans (ECPs) and Individual Healthcare Plans (IHPs) developed by the school nurse.
Every school in ASD4 has a full time registered nurse and at least 5 first responders who are trained in recognizing signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, epinephrine auto-injector administration and follow up procedures in the case of allergic reactions.
See attached for more details. 


Assisting Students With Medications
 
The South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners, Nursing and Pharmacy issued a joint advisory opinion, collectively agreeing that school nurses in South Carolina may administer over-the-counter medications in a school setting with parental consent and without a medical order from a licensed healthcare provider. However, if the over-the-counter medication is prescribed by a licensed healthcare provider, or a parent/guardian requests the over-the-counter medication be given differently than standard package instructions indicate, then the over-the-counter medication must be treated like a prescription medication as set forth in S.C. Code Ann. S 40-43-86, requiring both parental AND healthcare provider’s permission to be given at school.
ASD4 has updated our policy to reflect this joint advisory opinion.
All medications, over-the-counter and prescription, MUST be brought to school by a parent or guardian in the original packaging. Per policy, students are not allowed to carry any type of medication during school hours unless the appropriate permission forms have been completed, are on file and have been approved by the school administrator.
