Immunization Policy

The present school health laws of the State of Pennsylvania and Allegheny County Health Department require that all students be immunized and up to date with all vaccinations BEFORE the start of school.

Volunteer Clearances

In accordance with the Pennsylvania State Law, individuals at St. John's Preschool will not be permitted to serve as a volunteer unless they have submitted the appropriate clearances. Volunteers will be required to have two current valid PA Clearances (PA State Police Clearance and PA Child Abuse) on file with the preschool in order to volunteer.
