Pocahontas County Schools
With the restrictions regarding COVID-19 and the exchange of paperwork, the Pocahontas County Preschool Collaborative will begin to accept electronic Preschool Applications starting today, May 1, 2020 and will accept applications until June 1, 2020.
Directions for Preschool Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year:
1. To be eligible for Preschool for the 2020-2021 school year, a child MUST be 4 years of age before July 1, 2020.
2. The Preschool Application in fillable form will be available at the Pocahontas County Board of Education website. http://pocahontas-k12.wvnet.edu/boe/
3. Complete the fillable form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or print out the form, complete it and mail it with COPIES of the Record of Birth, Immunizations and Health Check to the Pocahontas County Board of Education office. DO NOT scan and email the Record of Birth, Immunizations, or Health Check. It is required to have a dental screening. The information in these documents are of a personal nature and should not be sent via email. They may be faxed to the Board of Education Office at (304)799-4499 or mailed to:
Pocahontas County Board of Education Office, Attention: Ruth Bland
404 Old Buckeye Road, Buckeye, WV 24926.
4. We do understand that some of the documents may be difficult to get completed at this time. Parents will need to do their very best to get the documents, but if the documents cannot be obtained we will require the parent to produce them prior to the first day of Preschool for the 2020-2021 school year.
5. Please do not stress over the application and the required documents. We are navigating through very trying and unusual times. The most important piece of information for now is the Application. If parents can complete the application and get to Mrs. Bland by email, fax or mail prior to June 1st, the Preschool Collaborative Committee will make the placement decisions based on the application and not the other documents, but the other documents will be required before the child can start Preschool in August of 2020.
