Dear MS/US Parents & Guardians,
Though this school year is just about to close, it is never too early to plan for the coming year!
The deadline for physical examination forms for the 2017-2018 school year is August 1, 2017.
Any physical examination completed after January 1, 2017 will be accepted for the coming academic year. Please print, sign and get your child’s physician’s signature(s) as noted, and then forward these required forms (find them at www.d-e.org/enroll or www.d-e.org/nursescorner) as soon as possible to avoid the last-minute rush and have questions resolved before the beginning of school.
If, due to insurance constraints, your child’s examination can only be done after August 1, please know that current exams will be kept on file until the updated one has been completed and returned to Health Services
If your child will be going to camp or you are planning a family vacation, please consider scheduling your child’s physical exam before leaving. Planning in advance helps avoid the chaos of the pediatrician’s office before the start of school.
Also, please be advised that the only health form accepted for school attendance for all students is the NJ Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Form. Pediatrician’s office forms can be accepted only for the immunization record.
Please remember the deadline of August 1st, especially if your child is planning to begin practice in August. ALL physicals and signed consents must be in before the beginning practice so there can be a thorough review of health history. Any student who presents forms on the day of practice will not be allowed to participate that day.
The Health Services office will undergo construction this summer and I will not have access to my room or my phone. Should you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), beginning July 5th.
Have a great summer,
