Students who wear prescription glasses must bring them to the physical examination.
At the end of each school year, the school nurses send out specific forms to any student requiring medication or special medical care. These forms must be completed by the student’s Health Care Provider and returned when the student presents for a sport physical.
All sports physicals for students attending District Schools must be completed by the District Nurse Practitioners. Non-public school students may have their sport physical with their own Health Care Provider. Final authority for all participation rests with the School Medical Director.
PHYSICALS DONE THROUGH THE DISTRICT NURSE PRACTITIONER WILL BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Working paper Physicals should be completed by the student’s own health care provider. If the student has a pending job and cannot get into his/her own provider, appointment may be made with the District Nurse Practitioner.
