Required Exams and Screenings

  • State regulation requires physical exams for entry to school (often Kindergarten) and at Grades 6 and 11. Dental exams are required for school entry and in Grades 3 and 7. The ELCO School District recommends that these exams be performed by the family physician/dentist on forms provided by the school (see attached below). A student may also receive an exam by the school physician or dentist.

    In addition, vision, height, weight, and body mass index are checked annually. Scoliosis and hearing screenings are completed at intervals required by the state.
