Be prepared with timely physicals

  • The Pennsylvania School Health Act requires a medical examination for every student starting school in grade K or 1, grade 6, and grade 11.  If your school nurse currently does not have a recent updated physical form on record for your child, you can have the physical examination done by your family physician.  Please note that new students will be required to have a physical on file performed from September 1, 2023 forward. 

    Your family physician has a better knowledge of your child’s medical history and is in the best position to recommend necessary treatment and immunizations.  Therefore, we encourage you to have the physical completed by your family physician and submit the form to your school nurse.

    State mandated dental exams

    We recommend having your child see your own private dentist every 6 months. Dental forms are required by the Pennsylvania School Code for school entry Kindergarten (K) and grade one (1) and grades three (3) and seven (7). Please submit the completed dental form  to the school nurse at the beginning of your child's Kindergarten/first grade, third grade, and seventh grade school years.
