The Nebraska State School Law, in part, requires that each student have a physical examination and a vision examination within six months prior to entrance into school, or upon transfer into the school district from a district outside of the state. A physical exam is also required for seventh grade, without the vision exam requirement. The vision exam form is included on the physical exam form, and may be completed by a health care provider or an optometrist.
A complete dental check-up is strongly encouraged at this time also.
If you do not wish to provide evidence of a physical exam and/or a vision exam, a signed statement waiving this requirement must be submitted to the school.
Please note, if your child will be participating in competitive athletics, a physical examination by a licensed health provider is required and signing a waiver does not satisfy this requirement. This exam must be done after May 1st of each year, to carry through the following sports year.
Sports physical cards can be obtained from the High School and Middle School.
