Military-Connected Family Survey

Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) received a DoDEA grant to help military-connected students and their family transition into PWCS and provide specific support to military-connected families. To that end, PWCS recently hired a Military Student Transition Consultant (MSTC) from the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). At this time, the consultant will be working initially with families from Ashland, Henderson, and Pattie Elementary Schools as she develops a military-connected transition program for the entire School Division.

In an effort to serve you better, we are asking you to complete this short survey. Your feedback is important and will be used when determining the type of support and resources that would be most beneficial to your family. Your participation in completing this survey is voluntary but strongly encouraged. All information that you disclose in this survey will be kept confidential within PWCS. Anonymized and summary data will be given to a 3rd party evaluator to ensure we are meeting the grant’s goals.

If you have any questions about this survey or the program, please feel free to contact Darlene Friedline at , or Carolyn Juba at .

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Tdap Requirement
Rising 6th Graders Tdap Requirement

The Tdap booster vaccine is required for sixth grade students before the start of school in September  2014. Please give proof of this immunization to your school nurse  once your child turns eleven. If your child has not received this immunization by June 19,2014, you will need to give the documentation to the middle school staff. This coming  school year ALL 6th grade students must have the vaccine before school starts. If your students is still 10 years old they will need to get the 10 year old vaccine. Meeting this requirement as soon as possible will help your child have a smooth transition to middle school.

Unfortunately, no sixth grade student will receive their home room assignment until written verification of the Tdap immunization  is received. These students will be excluded from school in September until  this immunization requirement is satisfied. Please contact Mrs. Peoples, our school nurse, if you have any questions.
