New York State Education Law requires students to have a physical exam on record in the health office during elementary school. Physical exams are required for all students who are:
- Entering Kindergarten
- Entering 1st, 3rd and 5th grades
- New to the Gates Chili School District
Copies of physical exam records must be submitted to the Health Office within 30 school days after school begins. It is recommended that these examinations be done by the family physician since they are more familiar with the health needs of the child. However, with your permission, our District School Nurse Practitioner will complete a screening physical free of cost. If we have not received your private completed physical within 60 days we will schedule one with our Nurse Practitioner.
