Mandated Screenings Performed At School

During the school year, we will assess your child's height and weight, calculate their BMI, and screen their vision. In addition, a hearing screening will be given to 2nd and 3rd graders.  A referral will be sent home if further evaluation is recommended for these screenings.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We acknowledge the challenges faced this past school year in sending required health documentation to school. Please see below for the required forms and documentation for your student(s). These documents which are required by the state are one of the ways we ensure your child is safe here at school.

Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and New Students: Physical form, dental form, and updated immunizations
2nd Grade: All forms not yet submitted from PAELC- physical form, dental form, and updated immunizations
3rd Grade: Dental form
4th Grade: Any 3rd grade dental form not submitted the previous year 
5th Grade: Any forms or immunizations due from previous years
6th Grade: Required physical form and updated immunization records
7th Grade: Record of required Tdap and MCV vaccines and dental form
8th Grade: Any forms not yet submitted from last year and updated immunization records
9th Grade: Any forms not yet submitted from Middle School, especially record of MCV and 
Tdap vaccines typically given in 7th grade
10th Grade: Any forms not yet submitted from last year and updated immunization records
11th Grade: Required physical form and updated immunization records
12th Grade: Record of required second MCV vaccine

o Physical and dental exams performed by your physician within 12 months prior to the first day of school are acceptable as are sports physicals. If you prefer to have your child examined by the school physician and/or school dentist, the exam will be conducted sometime during the upcoming school year.

o If your child has received any immunizations within the past year, please submit those as well for our records. Please reference this page for the PA Department of Health vaccination requirements.

Additionally, if your child receives vaccination for COVID, please send proof of this to the School Nurses’ office of your student’s school building. Accurate identification of vaccinated students is especially relevant if contact tracing is required to be conducted in school. 

o All physical forms, action plans, and medication forms can be found on each school’s website under the Health Services Department tab. Please submit required documentation within the first week of school to the Nurses’ Office if these apply to your child. (see below)
o Please also ensure that your child’s 2021-2022 Health Form is completed in Skyward. This provides us with your permission to administer treatment your child during the school day

Thank you for helping us to care for your child!
