Physical Exams are required for: Pre K/ Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 4th grade, 7th grade and l0th grade. For the child entering a required physical year, a physical performed during the previous school year would actually satisfy the physical requirement. If you plan to schedule a physical during the school year, this will work also. Please notify the nurses office of upcoming appointments and provide a copy of the physical after it's completed.
Athletes must have yearly physicals. The physical is valid for 12 months, until the last day of the month in which the physical was performed. For example a sports physical performed 8/1/16 is valid until 8/31/17. If the student's physical qualifies him/her on the first day of try-outs, he/she is set for that sport season.
It Is suggested that the exam be performed by the family physician, who best knows the child. The family physician is better able to judge any change or deviation in the child's state of health.
