Nursing & Health Services

The main objective of the Dorchester County School District Two School Health Program is to assist each student in achieving and maintaining optimal health so that maximal physical, social, emotional, and academic growth can occur.

School Health Room Operations:
The Health Room is operated daily under the supervision of a nurse. The school nurse is responsible for maintaining a health record on all students. The Health Room is designed to be an emergency station to care for minor illnesses or injuries that occur at school. Injuries or health concerns that occur outside of school should be treated at home or by your health care provider. The school nurse cannot diagnose or prescribe treatment. This is the responsibility of your family physician or health care provider.

There are times when a student should remain at home for his/her own welfare and for the protection of others. Please refer to the DHEC School Exclusion List for more information on when students should remain home from school.

In the event that a student becomes ill or injured and needs to go home, the person(s) listed during student registration will be contacted and expected to come for the child immediately. Also, there are times when it is necessary to verbally notify a parent or guardian about a situation. For this reason, please make sure the school has up-to-date phone numbers of those persons to be contacted in an emergency.
