Each year the student’s health records are audited to make sure that physical examinations and immunizations meet the requirements specified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. If your child is found to be missing appropriate documentation of a required immunization or physical examination, you will be notified and asked to contact your child’s primary care physician in order to update or clarify their history. It is very important to respond in a timely manner, in order to insure that your child’s school health record is considered to be in complete compliance with state requirements.
Athletic PhysicalsUnder MIAA rules, a student's physical exam is good for 13 months from the date of the exam. For example; an exam performed on 9/1/2015 will be valid until 10/1/2016. Students who participate in sports need to have a valid physical exam on record here in our office that is current through their entire sport season. You can check the date of the physical on file on the Health Info page of the Powerschool Parent Portal. Please check with your student's Guidance Counselor if you do not know your log in. If your child's physical exam expires during the sport season, they will be exempt from play until a new physical exam is provided to us. Please plan accordingly and schedule your child’s exams to avoid any interruption in your child’s athletic season. Please refer to the NAHS Athletics page for more information.
