The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires medical and dental examinations for children on entrance to school.  The District strongly encourages families to have these examinations completed prior to the start of school by your family physician and dentist as they can best evaluate your child's health and assist you in obtaining necessary treatments and corrections, if needed.  Forms which can be used to complete these examinations can be found here.
