It’s time to book your back-to-school physical and dental check-ups

Annual physical and dental exams by your family’s pediatrician or physician is a vital part of your child’s healthcare. School and sports physicals help ensure your child is fit and healthy to join in activities. 

School physicals are required for all children entering Kindergarten, 5th and 9th grade. Physicals are also required if your children participate in any school sports at middle or high school level. Dental exams are required for Kindergarten, 2nd, 6th and 9thgrade. Vision exams are required when your child enters kindergarten.

Exclusion day for District 186 is 10 days after the first day of school with most returning the third week in August. Morgan and Christian counties exclusion day is Tuesday, October 15.

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

Sports physicals are valid for a 12-month period.
