PHYSICAL AND DENTALS

Physical Exams 6th grade and kindergarten students need mandated physical exams, and any student without an exam on file. Attention: 6th grade parents: Mandated physicals are due before your student can enter 7th Grade. School exams (physicals and dentals) are done free of charge throughout the school year. You will receive notification of the date and time should your child require a physical and/or dental exam.

Dental Exams are required for kindergarteners/new enterers, third grade and seventh grade; also any student without a dental exam on file. Again, reminder forms will be sent home.

Private physical/dental exams were due Oct. 15, 2017. These private exams are valid within a year (from September 2016 to October 2017). Please have private dental and physical exams completed as soon as possible. Additional private forms are available from the school nurse to take at the time of your child's appointment to avoid additional fees and charges from your private doctor/dentist.
