Wellness Week Activities
The week of October 16, 2017 has been designated as Wellness Week for our schools. Greenbrier County Schools is partnering with MedExpress to promote healthy families. Is your family practicing healthy habits now to gear up for Wellness Week? We'd love to see! Share your healthy habits, tips, or best practices and use #OutsmartSick when posting to social media. During the month of October MedExpress is sponsoring a coloring contest for early elementary students. The student with the winning coloring sheet will win a basket of supplies for their classroom. Teddy Bear Clinics and other initiatives to promote healthy choice and healthy lifestyles will be available during the month.
Dental and physical examinations for 2nd and 7th grade students.
West Virginia Board of Education Policy 2423: Health Promotion and Disease Prevention requires that students starting 2nd grade in fall of 2016 and 7th grade in the fall of 2017 provide proof of a dental and physical examination completed within one year of the first day of school . Such examinations are already a requirement for PreK and kindergarten students.

This policy will expand to include 12th grade in fall of 2018. Call the lead school nurse, Paula McCoy, at 304-647-6470 with any questions.

Instruction on HIV/Aids and sexually transmitted diseases
As required by WV code and WV Board of Education Policy, students receive instruction on the principle modes by which communicable diseases, including, but not limited to, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are prevented, spread and transmitted. WV code (§18-2-9) also reads” An opportunity shall be afforded to the parent or guardian of a child subject to instruction in the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV/aids and other sexually transmitted diseases to examine the course curriculum requirements and materials to be used in such instruction. The parent or guardian may exempt such child from participation in such instruction by giving notice to that effect in writing to the school principal.”
Counseling Services Available for Students
Seneca Health Services can provide professional counseling services to our elementary students at their school if parental permission if obtained. Medicaid, private insurance, and CHIPS are billed for such services. Please contact your school principal, or the lead school nurse, Paula McCoy at 304-647-6470 if you are interested in these services.
Asthma Detection Project
In the coming months Dr. Maple Landvoigt, Pediatric Pulmonologist at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, will be conducting a study to help identify first and second grade children in our communities who may have previously undiagnosed asthma. There are no blood draws, needle sticks, or other invasive tests in any part of this study. Parents who choose to participate will be asked to complete a brief written survey about their child's symptoms. Based on the survey results, some students will be asked to do a simple breathing test (spirometry) at school. Look for more information coming soon.
