Additional Information:

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires medical and dental examinations for children entering school.  The District strongly encourages families to have these examinations completed before school by their 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.

Answers to additional frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be found here.
