State law requires all students to receive a physical exam and immunizations before starting seventh grade

What you need to do:

• Call your child’s healthcare provider now to schedule an appointment for a physical exam, as part of a well-child visit

• Bring the attached Student’s Health Record (Form 14) (link) to the appointment. During the visit, the healthcare provider will:

  1. Conduct the physical exam and administer immunizations;

  2. Answer your and your child’s questions about health and wellness; and

  3. Complete the Form 14

Submit the completed Form 14 to the school your child will attend for seventh grade

The physical exam must be completed within 12 months before starting seventh grade. Students

without the required immunizations by the first day of seventh grade risk being excluded from

school. Let the school know if you need more time to schedule your child’s appointment.
