Attention Parents of 7th and 12th Graders: Pocahontas County Schools would like to inform/remind you that all 7th and 12th graders will be required to show proof of two important immunizations prior to school entry. These include Tdap and meningococcal vaccines, which protect against vaccine-preventable diseases such as bacterial meningitis and pertussis. Please make sure that your 7th and/or 12th grader has received and provided documentation of these immunizations prior to the start of the school year. If you don’t get the immunizations before the first day of school, then students will be denied entry. You can go to your primary care physician or the Pocahontas County Health Department (if you don't have a primary care physician or if they don't carry the vaccine).

I want to take this opportunity to recognize, thank, and show my deepest appreciation to the teachers of Pocahontas County during this National Teacher Appreciation Week celebration. Working in education is very rewarding, very challenging, and all too often a thankless and unappreciated career. I want all of our employees to know that there are still many people in our community that respect and appreciate you for your tireless efforts and the attention that you pay to their children. The past two years have been unprecedented in its complexity and uncertainty. But be that as it may, you have consistently done your jobs, educated your students, and navigated a very unusual time in our history. I cannot thank you enough for all that you do. You have my utmost respect and support. With much appreciation Terrence C. Beam, Superintendent
