    PHYSICAL EXAMINATION REQUIREMENTS

    Mansfield Public School requires Physical Examinations to be provided for entry into Preschool or Kindergarten, Grade 4, Grade 7, and Grade 10.

    A Physical Examination completed within one year prior to school entry is required for any new student entering without a Massachusetts school health record (from out of state) or from within Massachusetts if a recent physical is not included in the transferring school health record.

    All Physical Examinations must be performed by a Licensed Medical Physician, or a Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner practicing under the provisions of existing state law.

    Parents/guardians with insufficient or no health insurance are asked to contact the school nurse.
