Dear Parents,

            In compliance with the Department of Health and the State of South Carolina, Beaufort County School District has now adopted a new medication permission form.  This form is not only different in format, but it is also different in procedure.  In previous years, we have accepted a permission for medication form signed by parents with a prescription labeled box.  From this point forward, the permission medication form must be signed by a physician as well as the parent.  Any prior permission forms used will not be valid.  Standard forms from the physicians’ offices will not be accepted either.  It must be the updated Beaufort County School District medication form. The medication must be accompanied in the prescription labeled bottle or box as before. These forms can be found on the BCSD website or obtained from the school. The links are below for your convenience so that you may have time to obtain the signed form from the physician during the summer.  If your child has more than one medicine, you will need more than one form.  I urge you not to wait until the start of school as the doctors’ offices are very busy during that time and you may not be able to get the form completed in time.  The forms for next year need to be dated no earlier than July 1, 2019.

If you have any questions regarding the new policy or form, please feel free to reach out to us so that we can make this transition to the new forms as easy as possible.

 Thank you,
