REMINDER TO PARENTS OF 6TH GRADERS!
The Pennsylvania School Law requires the results of a physical examination for all students entering 6th grade.
Any 6th grader who does not have either a private or school doctor exam will have a scoliosis screening done by the nurses as per the PA department of Health regulations.
Please ask your doctor to administer Tdap and Menactra vaccines if not updated. They will be required for entry into 7th grade so it is usually best to have this done with the 6th grade physical. Please be sure 4th polio after 4th birthdate has been administered.
Please contact the school nurse with any questions or if you would like to check if your child's exam is here or not.
