Physical Examinations

Pennsylvania state law mandates a health examination for all students in Kindergarten, grades 6th and 11th as well as students entering.

You may have the examination done by your private physician or by the school physician.  Dr. Donald Bulger does the physical examinations at both the High School and the Elementary School.  The exams are done in the month of October each school year.

If the exam is performed by the school's physician, the exam will include an abdominal check for boys and girls.  We recommend your child have a physical performed by his or her private physician since that medical professional knows your child best.

If you prefer your private physician to perform the exam, a private physician form  is available from the school nurse or you may download one from this website under Health Room Forms.  Payment for the private physician's exam is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
