Physical Examinations

RSA 200:38-II states:

“All children shall be examined prior to school entrance to detect symptoms of Tuberculosis and may be periodically examined during his/her school experience.”

A TB test (intradermal) is required within one year prior to school entrance.

Physical examinations, including vision and hearing tests, are required for all children upon entrance to school.

No child is allowed to enter school without physician’s documentation or a waiver for relevant reasons meeting the above requirements.

Plans should be made with your family physician or other medical resource to accomplish these requirements prior to your child being admitted to school.
