Every student will be examined once in each school year for screening
in sight or hearing and for other physical problems as provided in laws.
A record of the results will be kept by the school nurse.
A report of general physical examination on every student will be
required four times: upon entering school and upon admittance to the
fourth, seventh, and tenth grades. The results of examinations will be a
basis for determining what corrective measures or modifications of
school activities, if any, should be recommended. A record of all
examinations and recommendations will be kept by the school nurse.
Every candidate for a school athletic team will present the signed
consent of parent or guardian in order to participate on a squad and
will, with the signed consent of parent or guardian, be thoroughly
examined to determine physical fitness. The school physician will
examine athletes, except when a family wishes to have the examination
done by its own doctor at its own expense. A written report stating the
fitness of the student to participate signed by the physician will be
sent to the school principal.
The school physician will make a prompt examination of all children
referred to him by the school nurse. He will examine school employees
when, in his opinion, the protection of the students’ health may require
it. Except in an emergency, the school physician will not prescribe
for or treat any student.
