Each child must have a complete physical examination within one year preceding first entry to school. The Board also requires physical exams be completed prior to entrance to middle school and again prior to entrance to high school. No medical examination shall be required of a child whose parent or guardian objects thereto in writing on the grounds such medical examination is contrary to his/her religious tenets and teachings.

Parents of students transferring to the District must present proof of meeting the physical examination requirement prior to or upon first entry into the District’s schools. Failure to comply with this provision may result in exclusion from school for the child.

All students participating in athletics must have a physical examination in accordance with the provisions of Board Policy JJI.
