PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS (Refer to BOE Policy JGC)
All students (grades 9-12) entering the school district for the first time should provide evidence of a physical examination that has been completed sometime during their school career. Students who have not completed a physical examination by the first day of school should provide evidence that an appointment has been made for the physical. A student who has not met the requirements for the completion of the physical may be excluded from school. These absences will be considered unexcused and will be subject to truancy laws. Nonparticipation in this class may affect the grade earned.
All students participating in interscholastic athletics, dance team, and cheerleading are required to provide the building principal with evidence of a physical examination prior to participation. These physicals must be given after May 1 to meet the requirements for interscholastic participation the following school year. Students will not be allowed to participate in interscholastic athletics, dance team, or cheerleading until the completed form is presented to the principal. A medical doctor, an osteopath or a chiropractor must sign the physical examination form.
