Parent Handbook & Parent Drop-Off/Pick-up

First day of school for student is Wednesday, August 15th.  Students can be dropped off at 6:30am and should report to the main café in the South building to wait until 6:50am.  Here is a link to our parent handbook which contains information about parent drop-off / pick-up, breakfast/lunch prices and much more!  http://www.westcler.k12.oh.us/userfiles/922/my%20files/wcms%20parent%20handbook.pdf?id=11569 Please let us know (crowe_l@westcler.org or mundy_t@westcler.org  ) if you have a question that is not answered in the parent handbook so that we may add it if applicable!  Here is a map of the drop-off / pick-up process as well. /userfiles/922/my files/wcms detailed pick up drop off view.png?id=10768  All parents/guardians must use the Amelia-Olive Branch entrance and exit!



Info Snap must be completed for each student. It is policy within the West Clermont School District to not assign a student to a class, or allow them to attend until that it completed each year. Please make sure you have submitted that for your students. Any student arriving on Wednesday with an incomplete Info Snap registration will not be permitted to attend. Parents will receive a phone call to pick their child up from the school and they will not be permitted to attend until registration is submitted. These absences will be unexcused. If you have any questions or need assistance on submitting your Info Snap, please call Tina Mundy at (513) 947-7401 or email her at mundy_t@westcler.org

My name is Rhonda Deatherage and I am the attendance secretary and 6th grade receptionist. Here is a mini tutorial with attendance procedures for the 2018-2019 school year. There will be more information coming to you in September.  When your student will be out for the day, please call 947-7404 or email WCMS_attend@westcler.org with the reason for the absence by 9am if possible. We need the student’s full name and grade, parent name and phone number along with the reason for the absence. This information allows us to update the file and possibly excuse the absence. Notifying the school DOES NOT remove the attendance calls that goes out to absent students. For safety reasons, ALL parents are notified when their student is absent. If you receive the call and you believe your child should be at school, please call 947-7413 ASAP.  Feel free to call me with any questions  947-7413.

7th Grade Immunizations

7th Grade Immunizations - The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching.  We begin a brand new school year on Wednesday August 15th! As you finalize making plans for the upcoming school year we wanted to remind you that all students entering the 7th grade are required by Ohio law to provide proof of the following vaccinations BEFORE the start of the 2018-2019 school year. TDap and Meningicoccal (MCV4) vaccination. If your student does not receive the TDap and Meningicoccal (MCV4) vaccinations by the beginning of the 2018/2019 school year, he/she will be excluded from school beginning September 4th, 2018 in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 3313.671. Here is a link to all of the immunizations required by the Ohio Department of Health for students to attend school:Immunization Summary.  If you have already turned in an updated vaccination form there is no further action required on your end.  If your child's immunization records are not up to date, we encourage you to contact your primary care physician to schedule an appointment for the vaccinations as soon as possible. You may also contact the Wolves Wellness Center at West Clermont Middle School at 513-732-5082 to schedule an appointment.  You may use your current health insurance at the Wolves Wellness Center.  However, if you do not have health insurance the vaccinations will be provided by the Wolves Wellness Center at no cost to you. Vaccinations are also available at many local pharmacies.  Once a student has received the vaccination please fax their updated vaccination records to the attention of the Health Clerk Assistant to West Clermont Middle School (513-753-1070) or you can also have your child turn in their updated vaccination form on the first day of school.
