Change in TCSD Over-the-Counter Medicine Policy
The Mississippi 教育部 has recently informed schools of a monumental shift in how school nurses are to handle the administration of over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol, 布洛芬, 和苯那君. 周一开始, 10月31日, 2022, if you wish for a Tishomingo County School District school nurse to be allowed to give your child an over-the-counter medication, you must have your child’s primary medical provider execute a standing order for your child.
Until the District is in possession of this standing order, our school nurses will not be allowed to give your child any such medication without a parent physically present. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We at TCSD want to respond as quickly as possible so that we can continue to provide the best care for your children.
Standing Order templates will be provided by the District as soon as possible. Please continue to follow district and school social media outlets, 还有, parental communication platforms such as Remind/School Status, for further updates regarding this situation.
Attention TCSD Parents/Guardians:The Universal Free School Meals program introduced in March of 2020 in response to the COVID pandemic was not reauthorized by Congress this past session. 因此, the USDA program that allowed schools to offer free meals to all students will no longer be available in the 2022-2023 school year.

TCSD 学校董事会 Approves Free Athletic Pass for Veterans
周一晚上, 11月8日, the TCSD Board approved a pass for veterans (current and past) for FREE entry into any MHSAA-sanctioned athletic event or activity. A veteran will need to present proof of military service upon application. Any interested veteran can complete the application at any school in the district and will be issued a card. Again, this is at no cost for the veteran. I appreciate our board's desire to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for us. Please share this information with any veteran you know!
