Students
HEALTH EXAMINATIONS

The School Board recognizes the importance of periodic health examinations conducted according to state health regulations. To determine the health status of students, facilitate the removal of barriers to learning, and determine whether special adaptations of the school program may be necessary, the Board shall require that physical examinations be conducted, including tests for vision and hearing upon entry into school or as soon as practical.

All personnel employed to examine students shall exercise proper care of each student being examined and shall ensure that the examination results are kept confidential.

The District will annually notify parents of physical exams or screenings of students, except for state mandated routine vision or hearing screenings. Parents will have an opportunity to opt out of state recommended growth screening, if desired.
