Attention Parent / Guardian of 11th Grade Students: 

The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires physical examinations for all school children upon entry into school, 6th and 11th grades.  Letters were sent home with students on February 3, 2020 regarding this requirement.  If a completed exam isn't received at the school by Friday, March 13, 2020, your child will receive a physical exam at the school by Dr. Carroll (per permission on your child's emergency card) on March 24, 2020, at no cost to you.

If you have any questions or wish to be present for the exam, please contact the school nurse's office.

Thank you!
