health requirements

Dear Parent/Guardian of Incoming 7th and 12th Grade Students,


All children attending WV public school must be in compliance with WVBE Policy 2423, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, which requires a comprehensive PHYSICAL EXAMINATION (health check), DENTAL EXAM, AND IMMUNIZATIONS for new enterers in Pre-K and Kindergarten and subsequent grades 2, 7 and 12 prior to the start of the school year. 


Schools are mandated to enforce this law on behalf of the State Department of Health.


Ø  There is NO PROVISIONAL ENROLLMENT FOR STUDENTS ENTERING 7th or 12TH GRADE.  Students must provide proof of required immunizations prior to or on the first day of school to attend school.  Students who are not adequately immunized on the first day of school, Fall 2022, will be sent home from school and will not be permitted to return until proof of required immunizations has been provided to the school.


Ø  Students are also required to provide a copy of their most recent health check completed by their provider and a copy of their dental evaluation, both completed within the previous 12 months of August 2022.


Please contact Nurse Keri at PCMS, 304-299-5275, or Nurse Jan at SMHS, 304-684-2421, with any questions or concerns.  Thank you.
