UCAN NORTHWEST EDUCATION ENDOWMENT SCHOLARSHIP

The Scioto Foundation’s University College Access Network or UCAN was launched in 2008.
It is a program that helps youth plan, prepare, and pay for college through strong partnerships
with all Scioto County, Ohio schools, the South-Central Ohio ESC, local businesses, and
donors.
The UCAN Northwest Education Endowment Scholarship is part of the UCAN program.
Northwest has over $124,000 in its endowment fund and has given away over $48,000 in
scholarships to 75 students since the start of the program.
The Scioto Foundation will be offering a $40,000 match this year. All donations to Scioto
County UCAN Funds from September 1 through August 31 will be matched. The match ratio
will depend upon the amount of donations received. It is our hope that UCAN and UCAN
related funds will reach the $4-million-dollar mark in total assets by year 2028.
If you would like to donate to this fund, go to www.sciotofoundation.org or mail a check to the
Scioto Foundation, P.O. Box 911, Portsmouth, OH 45662. You may also contact the school or
the Foundation for more information.

Immunization Information and Requirements

Immunization Information and Requirements

Just a reminder: Students in Kindergarten, 7th, and 12th have required immunizations before they return to school to avoid exclusion from school. Please bring documentation of your child's completed immunizations to the open-house on August 16th to give to the school nurse.

Pre-School: If you have not provided the school with your child’s shot record, please do so. If you are uncertain whether your child is up-to-date on immunizations, please contact your child’s healthcare provider.

Kindergarten: Typically, children entering Kindergarten need to have vaccinations prior to starting school. Please make certain that your child’s shot record is up-to-date and a copy is provided to your child’s school. If you have questions about immunizations, please contact your child’s healthcare provider.

7th grade: Incoming 7th graders are required by law to have Tdap and meningitis vaccines. Please make certain that your child has received these vaccines and an updated copy of your child’s shot record is provided to your child’s school. Vaccines may be obtained from your child’s healthcare provider, the Scioto County Health Department, the Portsmouth City Health Department, or Kroger, Walmart and CVS Pharmacies.

12th Grade: Incoming 12th graders are required by law to have a meningitis vaccine after age 16. Please make certain that your child has received this and an updated copy of your child’s shot record is provided to your child’s school. Vaccines may be obtained from your child’s healthcare provider, the Scioto County Health Department, the Portsmouth City Health Department, or Kroger, Walmart and CVS Pharmacies. At this time, the Northwest Family Healthcare Center is only able to give vaccines to those students with private insurance coverage.
