The Nebraska State School Law, in part, requires that each student have a physical examination and a vision examination within six months prior to entrance into school, or upon transfer into the school district from a district outside of the state. A physical exam is also required for seventh grade, without the vision exam requirement. The vision exam form is included on the physical exam form, and may be completed by a health care provider or an optometrist.
A complete dental check-up is strongly encouraged at this time also.
If you do not wish to provide evidence of a physical exam and/or a vision exam, a signed statement waiving this requirement must be submitted to the school by November 1 (or 60 days after enrollment). Please note, if your child will be participating in competitive athletics, a physical examination by a licensed health provider is required and signing a waiver does not satisfy this requirement.
Physical Education Restrictions/Exemptions
Middle or high school students who have restrictions for participation in PE must have a health care provider's order on file, delineating what the restrictions are. Students who cannot participate because of health related concerns must have a health care provider's note on file exempting them from the class.
