11TH GRADE REQUIRED PHYSICAL EXAMS
 June, 2014
 
Dear Parents or Guardians:
 
Pennsylvania State Law requires a medical examination for ALL students in 11th (eleventh) grade including students attending PYAP, full/part time NMTCC, full/part time MCCC and PV Virtual Academy.
It is recommended that this examination be performed by your family physician since he/she
can best evaluate your child’s health, assist you in obtaining any necessary treatment, and update immunizations.
 
Attached is the required physical examination form (from the PA Department of Health) so you may have the examination completed prior to the beginning of school in September (ATTACHMENT BELOW).
 
Physical exams done after September 1, 2013 are acceptable.
 
If this attached form is not completed and returned to the school nurse by the first week of school,
your child will receive a physical examination by the school doctor sometime during the school year.
 
PLEASE NOTE:
A copy of the PIAA sports physical is acceptable in place of the required 11th (eleventh) grade physical.
 
Please send a copy of the completed PIAA physical form with an updated immunization record to the school nurse.
 
Thank you for your cooperation in helping us complete this requirement of the school health program.
 
Please contact Mrs. Morgitan, School Nurse with any questions/concerns at 610-489-1230 or jmorgitan@pvsd.org.
 
Sincerely,
                                                                       
Cynthia Lewis, Principal
