All students new to the school district must submit a signed physical examination performed by a health care practitioner, conducted within the past 13 months.
Massachusetts law (M.G.L. c 71, s 57 and related amendments and regulations 105 CMR 200.000- 200.920) require physical examinations of school children within 13 months before entry into school or during the first month after entry, and at intervals of either 3 or 4 years thereafter, such as Kindergarten, 4th grade, 7th grade and 10th grade. Forms are available in the school health office or download them below.
Physicals are required for all students entering Kindergarten, Grade 1, 4, 7 and 10. Signed copies of physical exams should be submitted to the School Nurse
Note: It is good practice to submit physical forms to the school nurse on an annual basis, if possible so that the nurse has the most current health information on your child.
It is recommended that physical examinations be performed by a student's own health care provider. If a student is examined at a minute clinic, health express, or urgent care center, then the forms below, including the history form, should be completed by the examining provider and submitted in their entirety to the school nurse.
Athletes should visit the Athletics Website Page for information on athlete physical exam requirements. Athlete physicals are valid for 13 months from the date of the exam.
