Evidence of a physical examination must be dated no more than six months prior to entrance or within sixty days after enrollment.  If the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) object to a physical examination, they must submit a signed and dated refusal form to the school.     

 

Eye Examinations  

 

The parent(s) or guardian(s) of (1) all incoming students in the beginner grade and (2) all out-of-state transfer students must provide evidence of a vision examination by a qualified vision health care provider. 

 

They must provide evidence of the vision examination within sixty days after the student’s enrollment.  The health care provider must test the student for amblyopia, strabismus and internal and external eye health, with testing sufficient to determine visual acuity.
