             students:

  • Physical examinations are required upon entrance to school and promotion to 6th and 11th grades.
  • Dental examinations are required upon entrance to school and promotion to 3rd and 7th grades. 

Therefore, entering kindergarten students will need these required exams.  For transferring students, when the health records received from the previous school indicate your child has not had the most recently required physical/dental exam, an exam will need to be completed. 

These examinations may be done by your family physician/dentist at your expense, or may be completed by the school physician/school dentist at the expense of the school district.

If you prefer your own physician/dentist to complete an examination as required, please take the following forms with you to the exam for the physician/dentist to complete:
 PA PHYSICAL EXAM form 
 dental form for your own dentist
