The annual free sports physical clinic will be held at Vinton County High School on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students MUST bring the sport physical form (pick up in the office), which has been signed by a parent. Forms filled out in pencil will not be accepted, black or blue ink only please. Color ink will not be accepted.

Cappo Health will bill your health insurance, accepting what your carrier deems usual and customary. As required by law, Cappo Health will bill for any deductible or co-insurance owed, if applicable. There are a number of circumstances that would waive any balance due for this testing (including saving for college). Please be aware that if you have an HSA, FSA, or HRA account, funds may automatically be deducted if a balance is due.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by an abnormality in the heart's electrical system or structure that abruptly stops the heartbeat. It is the leading cause of death on school campuses. According to the American Heart Association, every 3 days a young athlete dies from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the US. In 80% of the cases, there are no warning signs or symptoms leading up to a cardiac arrest.

Cappo Health will perform EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart conditions that can put your child at risk and vascular ultrasounds to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). All tests are non-invasive, and the privacy of your child is maintained.

VCHS Students visit the Ohio Supreme Court

    On Monday, March 26, 2018 Mrs. Matteson’s Social Studies class enjoyed a trip to the Supreme Court of Ohio in Columbus. The artwork in the building was elegant and reflected Ohio’s history. The Supreme Courtroom had many paintings on the walls and ceiling, many trimmed in gold leaf.

    Our tour guide was a former judge and was very informative. We especially enjoyed the Visitor Education Center and the case exhibits. We had studied some of the cases before our trip and got to see the verdicts given. Another exhibit we enjoyed was the evidence display where we learned about fingerprinting, DNA and eyewitness reporting. Finally, we enjoyed an elevator ride to the 11th floor to view Bicentennial Park.

      Grant funding is available to pay most of the bus costs of a round trip to Columbus through programs at the Supreme Court of Ohio and the Statehouse. Please contact Karen Matteson at 596-5258 ext. 261 for more information. (Article and picture provided by Mrs. Matteson’s Social Studies class.)
