School Entrance Requirements:

All preschool, kindergarten, and new to the county students are required to submit a Virginia School Entrance Health (Physical) Form and immunization record completed by a licensed provider prior to the first day of school. School entrance physicals must be completed within one year of entry. This means that for the 2021-2022 school year, physicals must be completed between August 23, 2020 and August 23, 2021. Students who were previously enrolled in a PWCS preschool program, through Headstart or child find, are also required to submit an updated physical that falls within the dates above. This is in accordance with the Virginia Department of Education school entrance requirements and is a requirement for both in person and virtual schooling within the county. These records must be provided to the school nurse by Friday, August 20, 2021 by 4:00 pm in order to begin classes on the first day of school, Monday, August 23, 2021. Blank copies of the School Entrance Health form (and other related forms) that can be provided to your child's health care provider are linked below.
