Important News from the Nurses Office – Physical Examination Requirements – Grades 4, 7 & 10

Nov 13th 2017

Important News from the Nurses Office – Physical Examination Requirements – Grades 4, 7 & 10

The state law requires that all children have a physical examination entering kindergarten, grades 4, 7, and 10 and upon transfer from another school system. Because your family physician has a comprehensive knowledge of the health status of your child, it is desirable for him/her to perform this examination.
