Student Forms Update: 
Existing SBCSD families must log into Skyward (Use the Skyward button at the top right of any SBCSD page.) and update each of their children's information before school begins in August.  This allows the school to contact you efficiently in the event of an emergency.  If you have difficulty, please email Skywardhelp@southbutler.net
 
Student Health Requirements:

The Pennsylvania School Health Law requires that all students entering school for the first time, Kindergarten, 6th Grade, 11th grade, and those entering from an out-of-state school receive a medical examination.  It is recommended that your family physician perform this exam.  Please schedule your child's exam and have the Physical Examination Form completed.  Additionally, students entering school for the first time, Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 7th Grade are required to have a dental exam.  Please use this Dental Examination Form.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires all school students to have the following immunizations
prior to entering Kindergarten or 1st grade:
 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday)
(usually given as DTP or DTaP)
 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday and at least 6 months after previous dose is
given)
 2 doses of measles, mumps, rubella (usually given as MMR)
 3 doses of hepatitis B
 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity
Additionally, for attendance in 7th grade:
 1 additional dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis
 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)
Additionally, for attendance in 12th grade: 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine
(MCV). If one dose was given at 16 years of age or older, that shall count as the 12th grade dose.
Required vaccinations must be obtained by the 5th day of school or the student risks exclusion from
school.
*These requirements allow for the following exemptions: medical reason (must have the
signature of a medical professional), religious belief, or philosophical/strong moral or ethical
conviction. If one of these exemptions exist, the school nurse must have a letter stating the reason by
the 5th day of school or the student risks exclusion. A medical reason requires a signature by a
medical professional.
