A yearly physical exam by your family’s pediatrician or doctor is an important part of your child’s healthcare. While specific requirements vary by school and/or sports organization, school and sports physicals can help ensure your child is healthy and prepared to join in activities.

A typical exam includes a review of your child’s complete health history to ensure you he or she is up-to-date with immunization and vaccine recommendations for their age.

School physical exams/proof of immunizations are required when your child is entering kindergarten, 6th grade, and 9th grade.

Sports physical exams are required if your child plans to participate in a sport at the middle or high school level. Sports physicals are valid for a 12-month period.

School dental exams/waivers are required when your child enters kindergarten, 2nd and 6th grades.

Vision exams/waivers are required when your child enters kindergarten.

Exclusion day is September 4.
