The School Health Law requires medical examinations for elementary school children on entry into school, and dental examinations in kindergarten and third grade. We are recommending that these examinations be done by your family physician and dentist since they can best evaluate your child's health and assist you in obtaining necessary treatments and corrections. The appropriate forms have been sent home.
Please return these forms on or before October 31st or call the nurse's office with the scheduled physical or dental date. If the forms are not received, then your child will be scheduled to see the school physician or dentist. If you need assistance obtaining medical insurance for your children, please contact the school nurse for available resources.
