Bitmoji Welcome


Hello, Benton Families/Cougars!

 Treatment plans, medication forms, sport's physical forms and immunization information can all be found at the bottom of the page. Get things turned in early, so I can make sure everything is in place to ensure your child has a healthy start to the 2022-23 school year!


Next year will be my 13th year in the county and 5th year at Benton. I received my BSN in nursing from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and have a minor in Psychology. I have 3 boys...one that graduated college, one in college and the last one is a Senior in High School....and they all went to PWC schools =) The girls in the family include our 18 month old & seven year-old Pibble mixes. Our family LOVES the outdoors...hiking, biking, boating, and going to sporting events.

There is a lot of health information on the website (just click on the underline links), but if you have any specific questions, please send me an email at kuzemcrm@pwcs.edu and I'll be happy to respond.

 

 

Vaccination Requirements

***HPV is "Required" but may be declined after reading materials...see statement on immunization requirements link below***

immunization requirements webpage

***You can view your child's immunizations in ParentVue, under

School immunization records are not automatically updated when students receive vaccines.

You can scan/email it to me at kuzemcrm@pwcs.edu, ALSO include the registrar, Sabrina Esteban, estabads@pwcs.edu OR you can bring a HARDCOPY into the office.

The deadline for students to meet the immunization requirement for mandatory immunizations for public school enrollment is August 19, 2022. If proof of the required immunizations is not provided by August 19, 2022, the student will be excluded from school starting August 22, 2022, until the required immunization documentation has been provided to the school.

If you have questions, please contact the front office during summer hours

Now, more than ever, we want to ensure that all of our kids are adequately immunized!
