The Massachusetts Department of Public Health requires a copy of a Physical Exam upon entering school, usually in Kindergarten, 4th, 7th and 11th grades. Students in the fourth grade need to provide the school with an updated physical exam since March of 2021. You can contact your child's doctor and have them fax the physical exam to the school. If your child has not had an exam, please make an appointment with their health care provider.
