Current Happenings

Required shots 

Preventive vaccination is required for all children attending public school in West Virginia. There is no religious or philosophical exemption available. Medical exemptions can be obtained through your physician and the WVDHHR. Information on this process can be found at . Current requirements for required vaccination for school attendance have been in effect for 3 years, so there is nothing new that parents should not know. Students who will be entering grades 7 and 12 have received multiple notices via phone messages, publications, and messages on report cards that these shots are required before they can start school in August 2016. Therefore, all shots will be required on the first day of school. Those who do not have these shots will be sent home and given an unexcused absence.
