The Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department Mobile Dental Clinic will be at Hamilton Middle School December 12th & 13th, 2023! Students who DO NOT HAVE A DENTIST OR HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE DENTIST IN A YEAR OR MORE may participate. Please contact the school nurse to request a consent form to be sent home with your child. You may also download and print a consent form and return using the 'Upload Consent Form' button. A dental hygienist will perform a screening, cleaning, fluoride, and sealants if applicable. Please take advantage of this great opportunity for your child to get their teeth cleaned! Only students with completed consents will be seen. If your student is in 6th grade, this cleaning will count towards 7th grade entry. Thank you!

Attention Parents / Guardians of Students Entering 7th Grade:
7th grade is a school checkpoint grade. All West Virginia students entering 7th grade must have one dose of the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) and one dose of the Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine. Please call your primary care physician to schedule a vaccine review and immunizations for your adolescent. Students must also have a record of a Dental and Physical Exam before entering 7th grade. Students will be excluded from school by state law if not received.
Meningitis - poses a serious threat to adolescents. Meningitis can kill a healthy person in 48 hours or less. Up to 1 in 5 survivors of Meningitis have problems for the rest of their lives, due to the loss of limbs, scarring, hearing loss and neurological damage.
Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough) - Pertussis is spread by coughing and sneezing. Anyone can catch Pertussis and spread it to others, including infants.
To assist with meeting immunization requirements, the health department will be coming to Hamilton Middle School to hold a vaccine clinic on April 8th, 2024. Please contact the school nurse for a consent to be sent home with your child. Again, this is a benefit to you and your student. Just a reminder - there are no exclusions or waivers for this. If not met, your student will not be able to start school in the fall and will be sent home on the first day of school.
PLEASE BRING THE COPIES OF THE UPDATED IMMUNIZATION RECORD, DENTAL RECORD, AND PHYSICAL EXAM RECORD BY THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL TO THE SCHOOL NURSE.
